IT industry is basically driven by enterprising spirit and ability to take risks. In this industry skill and ability to execute with professional approch are of paramount of importance. There is nothing like a safe job anymore in IT industry. This industry works on a Silicon Valley mentality of hire & fire and Darwin’s principle of ‘Survival of the Fittest’. Perform or Perish is the rule of the game here.
Against this backdrop, experience and prior business background are not so important for starting an enterprise.. A model of Startup busines is very common. Most successful companies such as Microsoft, Oracle, Novel, Citrix and Indian companies such as Wipro, Infosys, Mastek, HCL etc are also entrepreneurial successes.
