Any Shortcuts?

Are there any shortcuts to being a successful entrepreneur?

So what are the ingredients?
No! --- --- money is the least of your requirements. Of course, you need some but success at a start-up goes beyond that!

Thank you sir. Please find below the brief about the venture.

Our initial focus is to prepare candidates for field sales jobs in BFSI sector. which will be further scaled up to address requirements across industries.

This will be 5 months course, 3 months of classroom (4 hrs every alternate day) and 2 months of internship. The classroom session will have 2 parallel tracks of 2 hr each for domain & soft skills. Out of 2 hrs for each track, 1 hr will be theory and 1 hr presentation on assignment. Everyday students will get activity based assignment and in every session they will be graded on competency parameters for the skills required.

Other than the regular session, sunday's will have marathon sessions of mock sales calls led by industry professional, simulating real work situations.

We'll also prepare students for AMFI & IRDA certifications.
