The two journeys that are challenging and risky to take up but can lead to amazing results include being an entrepreneur and an Olympian. These two seem like diverse fields but are actually quite similar.
When a startup emerges, all we see is its entrepreneur’s successful face. Similarly, when we see Olympians winning medals for their nations, all we see is them in their perfect prime.
But there is a lot that goes behind these journeys. Both the roads are packed with competition, polishing skills, long practice and working sessions, strict routine, economic obstacles, etc.
Torchbearers Inc. is a talk series presented by Amazon Web Services (AWS) in association with NeoNiche which has emerged in the light of honoring these two torchbearers of the new era. YourStory is the media partner and TiE Mumbai and StartupTalky are the ecosystem partners.
