In recent years healthcare has become an integral part of the business ecosystem in India. To stand apart in the race, startups today need a more customized approach and targeted promotion to have an impact on their audience.

Message from an expert on entrepreneurship

Ravi Teja Akondi informs, “ I would like to advise budding entrepreneurs that the industry is not always glamorous as it looks. We always look on the brighter side of things. We assume many things on startup fundings but there is resilience required to solve complex problems. Keep your thoughts clear on ventured-packed experiences and you should love and be dedicated to solving problems.  There is a good scope of sustainable business in entrepreneurship. Understand and read about entrepreneurship. It's not always glamorous. Come with a strong drive towards it.” 

For fellow entrepreneurs who are on their 0 - 1 journey, I would say go, try to solve problems with fewer resources and time. Build faster feedback notes. Be very dynamic and try to change at a faster pace, it's important at the initial stages. Don't lose your courage and confidence. “
