Sramana Mitra’s journey from the entrepreneur’s daughter in Kolkata, India to the computer science MIT graduate and then to tech startups in Silicon Valley may not sound unique, but the milestones she has accumulated along that journey are definitely not of the common variety.
In this latest edition of her ‘Entrepreneur Journeys’ series, Mitra gives us her latest thinking in a clear, no-holds-barred manner. Her thesis is that infant entrepreneur mortality can be greatly reduced by democratizing both the education of entrepreneurs and the incubation of their businesses. She then goes on to explain precisely how both of these can be achieved.
The theme for this past week has been “growth”. How do you find ideas to grow? How do you deal with scaling at a suitable pace? And, how do you deal with the inevitable failures along the way? And, for inspiration, we have a varied group of individuals / stories – in particular, Ray Dolby, the audio technology pioneer, who died a few days ago.
