I am really glad to hear my fellow speaking for the topic but I am not in accordance to my fellow friends. I somehow disagree to the fact that smaller business and start ups have more scope for the professional growth.

I would like to present some of my views for my thoughts.

There are many problems starting a business like you alone can never be able to start a business for starting a business you need a lot of support which is both financial and psychological deficiency to which may lead to fall in a business.

Another problem which you would be facing would be that any business wont get a quick growth.

For a success in nay business you need to have a lot of patience.

Another problem which would come would be that you need a lot of experience regarding that field.

If you are short of any of the conditions you are bound to fail in your start up carrier.

And a job in an MNC would be a far safer idea than opening a new business.

Hello friends,

I would like to share my view.

Small/start up company provides a good chance for the professional growth. But it also lacks the exposure for modern technology and management. I am working on a MNC and dealing supplier.

What I have seen is the broad vision and exposure to the modern technology, management or concept which you get in a larger MNC is certainly missing.

When it comes for family run business, you generally takes the learning front your elders which is most of the time is last generation thinking.

I am not against the start up companies. Certainly you get more learning from the small companies, which you can never get in a large MNC.

But you need to get exposure to the larger MNC by which you can harness your skill on long term thinking, vision and strategy. Also need to spend time and energy on training. Spend few pennies on people development and continuously update along with the industry.

According to me, working in a startup gives you the leverage to work on different aspects as the strength of the organisation might not be that much as compared to a big industry. Here in startups we can learn new things, think of creative ideas, evaluate them and apply them successfully. Working in startups provides us with very good learning experiences as compared to that of big companies.

On the other hand, when you start working in a big company the work to be done by you is predefined and you are only supposed to carry out those tasks efficiently on regular basis. Due to this, the person keeps himself away from the innovations that he can put in work.

Hence I feel smaller businesses and startups have more scope for professional growth.

Hi. I just came across this group discussion, and I would like to share my opinion regarding this subject.

I firmly believe for the business to grow well the idea/plan/product one proposes to the market has to be unique to the target market and must distinguish itself from the competitors.

And secondly in my opinion if the entrepreneur is new to the field of business it's always good to start from a smaller business as one can have a wider scope for the self improvement, in terms of planning, directing, controlling and decision making in turn tuning him to excel him in the profession leading to his/her professional growth.

So the strategy is :

Hello friends, I am kapil and i want to initiate the topic "smaller businesses and start-ups have more scope for professional growth", i am totally agreed with this topic because in my opinion, if any body initiate something at small scale either it is a business or career, peoples are more concentrated for their professional growth and always trying to find the ways to reach at their destination instead of the well settled peoples, in a small start-ups peoples has to do all the work by himself only, therefor day by day they got much and much experience, which is definitely the primary key for growth.

Good judgment comes from experience, and a lot of that comes from bad judgment.

I agree with the statement that "smaller start-ups have more scope for professional growth".

In small start-ups people work for themselves with very less investment and workers. This provides employment opportunities as well. This earns some profit to some extent which leads to more improvements in business and paves a path for growing professionally to reach their destination.

Some businesses will not have quick growth and the falls in business are quite natural. So one should be positive and have patience to be successful. This comes by experience and one can gain knowledge which helps professional growth of a business.

So smaller start-ups have more scope for professional growth.

Hello everyone.

The topic given to us is smaller businesses and start ups have more scopes for professional growth.

Well in my opinion, I think there is an enormous scope for them to grow in the future but it mainly depends on the product or services they are offering.

If it is in accordance to the market demand and trends then it will help them grow into professionalism but if they are just following or imitating other business just because they have grown I don't think they will too. Although they start off well in the early stages there is no guarantee that all start ups and small businesses will have professional growth.

Thank you.

In my opinion definitely smaller business and start ups have a good scope for professional growth as majority of the Indian population is middle class and thus they have a limited purchasing power. They prefer to go for products and services which falls within their range.

While most of the large business set ups sell their products at a price which is above the budgets of the common class. Greater initiatives by the government like the"Make in India" programs further encourages the people to start businesses and again as most of the Indian population is middle class they have limited capital to start with.

This is actually a remarkable statement and I agree with every aspect of this statement "smaller business and start ups have more scope for professional growth". A business at small scale let you to emerge out as a proficient and their are less chances of huge failures. Moreover, one can learn real techniques to run any type of business if he/she starts from small concern. As far as money making is concerned, business nowadays has a lucrative scope in India.

Whatever you decide to run, just be sure that you have enough resources and confidence to run your business at your own.

Hello friends, I think its very good topic for discussion. I agree that there is 'smaller businesses and start-ups have more scope for professional growth'. Because I think if people start from zero i.e. any small business then people are very focused to their aim or on growth. There are many points for to achieve great success in life. In life may have bad experience but people learnt a lot from that and develop their self & got an idea how to do work on business. I think this struggle and experience get a lot to make a man successful.
