Startups are bold entrepreneurial ventures by forward-thinkers who plan to implement and cultivate their innovative business models in an open yet harsh market space. A critical challenge in building a company is the uncertainty under which decisions are made. The only solution for this is to have the founders of these companies be agile and flexible in identifying the right opportunities to seize and in avoiding unrewarding risks. In a digital era where market trends are constantly shifting, startup founders in every industry have to rapidly overcome their daily struggles and meet the requisites of a well-oiled organisation.
The present-day startup scene has changed significantly in the last decade.

With the current market scenario offering entrepreneurs a multitude of funding options and investment opportunities to capitalise on, the competition is fierce—with only the most steadfast companies emerging successful.
