27 Aug Futurepreneurs
The pace of life has increased at such a rate that everyone is trying to survive and excel by becoming more productive. The best way to utilise one’s time is through self-improvement and productivity. To achieve this goal, one needs a lot of hard work and an effective plan. The world of today has become so competitive that it’s not enough anymore just to be at the top in terms of grades or degrees: nowadays it’s all about who can be the most productive; who can outsmart others by incorporating new ideas into his plan or simply by being ruthless and having the courage to act on one’s gut instinct and keep moving forward no matter what; who will have knowledge and skill applicable in every domain, across various industries. India is a country filled with talented young entrepreneurs. These talented souls are making a huge impact on the nation by starting their own companies or becoming successful employees in large corporations like Google and Amazon. When it comes to entrepreneurship, India has always excelled at providing its youth with the opportunities and resources needed to succeed.
We believe that it’s important to know the success stories of Indian entrepreneurs who have established or are establishing businesses in their own right. The success stories of some of these young Indian entrepreneurs should serve as an encouragement to everyone who wants to establish a business and is willing to think beyond the box.

The little child has the curiosity to do something unusual to make a difference. A 16-year-old Indian entrepreneur, Tilak Mehta, created the app-based courier firm, Papers n Parcels (PNP). This company promises faster delivery of items to thousands of consumers in the Mumbai area all at an affordable price. Customers can simply order their items for home-delivered service and the courier service provider will pick up their materials and deliver them to your doorstep. Tilak thinks that “every ordinary youngster who is curious enough to know why? when? and what? about anything can become an entrepreneur. Even though we are up against insurmountable odds on our paths, what matters is that we keep moving forward.”
Since the beginning of the digital era, in which there has been an intense rivalry since childhood, it is crucial that we not only concentrate on the opportunities that lie ahead but also pick up new skills and technologies and adapt to them. These incredible young Indian entrepreneurs serve as an inspiration and a lesson in the need to update our abilities on a regular basis to keep up with new technology developments.
