Rajeeb Dey: The path to entrepreneurship

Rajeeb graduated in 2008, the year Lehman went down, and, despite some great job offers, he decided to set up in business on his own.

His company is Enternships; the aim is giving working in a startup the same kudos as working in a large organisation as an intern.

Lots of people want to start their own businesses, but never do. Analysis paralysis is a problem – we’re taught to be risk-adverse and to frown at failure. Too many people view entrepreneurship as what you do when you don’t have a job. But it’s about freedom and about meaningful work.

There is hope: there are a lot of bodies out there.

Entrepreneurship is jumping off a cliff and building a parachute on the way down. Are you ready to jump?
