Why Does This Matter?
Why next generation of employees are likely to fail due to traditional Education System?
Reason behind 90% of startups failing within the first 5 years of operation?
Globally, 60% of youth want to start their own business but according to IBM Oxford study 90% of startups fail within the first 5 years of operation. Since 2015, as many as 1,503 startups have closed down in India. The major reason for startup failure is due to the replication of Western business models and lack of skills and capabilities related to Problem Solving Approach, Business Acumen, Strategic Foresight, Understanding User behaviour and Empathy, Personality & Team and Innovative Mindset. Other reasons cited for failure include lack of
skilled workforce and funding, inadequate formal mentoring and poor business ethics, according to the study.”
