Perceptions regarding Factors leading to Success :

Mr. Oswal, while replying to various questions regarding the competencies of an entrepreneur required for a successful venture, very strongly feels about the presence of self confidence, hard work and commitment in an entrepreneur. Without strong commitment and self-confidence, success is not assured. He also agrees that to be successful, one should be able to take reasonable risk, should have the ability to convince others and be innovative. He does not that for a successful venture, one should be able to cope with stress.

Perceptions regarding Supportive Industrial Environment :

Speaking on industrial environment, the promoter feels that industrial supportive environment must always provide adequate funds, cheap and trained labour, right technology, training facilities and easy availability of raw materials.

ADVERTISEMENTS:



He feels that government bureaucracy’s help is required only once in while, whereas government subsidies and incentives are hardly considered in a supportive industrial environment as these are very meagre and make the person dependent.

Entrepreneur’s Heuristics :

Speaking on his entrepreneurial heuristics, he feels that one should avoid producing entirely a new product. The entrepreneurs should venture in those products in which they either have family background or enough relevant educational qualification and work experience. One should locate factory where one’s family contacts are sound. Resorting to unfair means for earning short term gain is not the right preposition. Frequent feedback from customers is important in order to improve one’s performance. It is the quality of product, which makes all the difference, between a successful and an unsuccessful entrepreneur. So one must strive for producing better quality products.
