Secrets of successful entrepreneurs: Why some
succeed while many fail?

In this session, I identify what differentiates serial and successful
entrepreneurs from others. I had a chance to co-found the TiE Institute
for entrepreneurs in silicon valley and interact with large number of
entrepreneurs. I also had worked with entrepreneurs and entrepreneur
organizations in US, India and Europe and I will share the essence of my
learning gained through interviews, coaching, research and personal
experience and documented in the upcoming book ‘From Smart to Wise.’

About our speaker.
Prasad is the CEO of the Kaipa Group in California and works with companies and senior executives in the areas of innovation, leadership development and coaching. He is a senior research fellow and a visiting professor at Indian School of Business (ISB) and was the founding Executive Director of the Center for Leadership, Innovation and Change (CLIC) and raised multi-million dollar funding to initiate two research cells–SBI Cell for Public Leadership and Biocon Cell for Innovation Management in CLIC. Core themes for Prasad’s research are wisdom leadership, Indian models of innovation and leadership, affordable innovation, transformational leadership and mental models. He was a Smith Richardson Visiting Fellow at Center for Creative Leadership between 2010-2011 and is currently an advisor to Business FAC of Fetzer Institute. Prasad taught executive education programs organized by INSEAD, LBS, Tuck and IIM Bangalore in addition to ISB.
Prasad has been an advisor and coach focusing on innovation and leadership since 1990 for about 120 C-level executives in Global Fortune 500 companies. Clients included Adobe, Boeing, Disney, Johnson & Johnson, Maxim and Oracle as well as global/entrepreneurial companies like Aztec, Advanta, BAE Systems, Lunar Design, Mastek, Olixir, Polaris, State Bank of India and Scintera Networks. The purpose of Prasad’s innovation/leadership coaching is to ignite the genius within individuals. Prasad’s unique competence is in helping his clients find their next significant step and take it. He found that unless he helps clients to examine their signature strengths that have turned into “core incompetence” and kept them stuck, it is difficult to ignite and channel their creativity to come up with innovative decisions, products, and services. He assists clients in becoming effective in managing people as well as oneself (personal mastery), getting reenergized and building new capacities, and taking more risks, in addition to innovative and strategic decisions.
Prasad co-founded the Entrepreneur Institute for TiE in the Silicon Valley in 2002 to assist entrepreneurs develop soft skills and connect, engage and co-create effectively with others in the ecosystem. Over 13,000 entrepreneurs have gone through TiE Institute programs. He is a part-time faculty member at the Saybrook University and works with students in the areas of creativity and innovation, transformational learning and leadership. Prasad is/was on the board of directors/trustees for International Leadership Association, Marico Innovation Foundation, Samskruta Bharati US, Integral Leadership Review, Lead India 2020, Society for Organizational Learning (SoL), Aankhen, Turning Point Global, Intertec Communications, Hindu University of North America, and Catalyst.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

  2. Good speach and great respect to the speaker. Disappointed how it is presented. Looks like a bluescreen, not according to ted standards like showing the audiance, quality in display or sound quality. Sounds like a bathroom without any people in it and im almost sure it is something like this. Nothing but the quality of the speach in some parts speaks for a ted talk. WHat happened there?

  3. Along with above mentioned points growth mindset, capacity to suffer….1% vision n 99% alignment ….skin in the game….this show confidence …….bean guy or big picture guy….which reflect in balance sheet…..not by talking….no don't lie…we don't trust any management…..in India …mostly lie…..we take seriously when CEO or management talk about free cash flow in international annual reports….not growth…..we take seriously such company….we like low profile ….unknown….who work…in the field…take the charge ….not cabin seated with suited booted….focus….ànd passion for work….with no egoistic…mistakes can be forgiven but not egoistic decision…..and constantly evolving….with passage of time.. willing to work harder with growing age…

  4. The statistic of 1 in 10 businesses surviving is true. In the US atleast, the survival rate is 50% for the first 5 years, which drops to about 33% after 10 but has a lot of vatiation depending on the specific industry at hand.

  5. What you need is Product Market Fit. …… meaning people are will to pay you a price that covers your costs and gives you a profit……….

    You need these 5 things at a minimum:

    Skills:  Sales Skills, Marketing Skills, Management Skills
    Time:  You need free time to build your business
    Money:  Yes, you need money to pay your bills while your building your business
    Knowledge : You need Market & Competition knowledge
    PMF:  Product Market Fit, without it the above don't really matter

    Hope this helps……

  6. Wonderful video! Thanks for sharing!

    I always wanted to be employer , not an employee.
    so, i took a jump 2 years back , but i failed miserably.

    Now, I am trying to understand , why I failed?

    Recently, I discovered this Android mobile app "21 Entrepreneurial Habits~Free" by hanumappa. which clearly explained why few entrepreneurs succeed and others fail!
