As I read all the messages in my view I am already in the business for the past 35 years in the printing activity I am not aware of other business I believe in "necessity is the mother of invention" if you really intend to do achieve higher goals you basically stick to basics first punctuality, quick decision, timely approach, positive attitude, sense of humor, cheer-up attitude so on suggest me to improve my business.

I think starting our own business is very good idea but you have to think globally, in every sector there is competition. So start up with big capital is more risky so you have research the market.

Hello, friends.

India has a developing sector which increases the competition, but even competition the most important point is idea which is the future of your business and requires the most of the knowledge. Second thing is that what the customers want from us, their satisfaction from product or service. I thaught food industries startup has the good scope.

Smaller business start ups are preferred for professional growth.As an individual one cannot have wider about business and one cannot invest more amount in business.So starting with a smaller business and gaining knowledge about various problems related to the organisation can help in business as well as professional growth.

According to me in the large business there are more people belonging to the same hierarchy, and when we talk of the growth then more competition exist. But smaller the business there are less people in the same level of hierarchy hence providing more scope for the professional growth. Therefore it applies the fact that smaller business/start ups have more scope for the professional growth.

Some of my friends above seem to be very dissatisfied with the given issue. According to me, its very simple to understand the fact that if you are not a proficient in this field you better start with a smaller one. It will help you develop your skills, techniques, confidence to face ups and down, etc.

You can idolize any business tycoon namely Ambanis, Birlas etc. Everyone of them started with a smaller concern.

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 :

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.

According to my point of view the start up can give more growth if the person is ready to take huge risk and can wait for the growth as there are so many person who want early success so for them the startups are not the right place.

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.
