Why are more Indian startups founded by engineers than MBA grads?
And even within the small number of students that take up entrepreneurship, engineer-founders dominate the landscape. The number of (management) students who start up on their own [after graduation] may be around 2-3 per cent,” says Rishikesha T. Krishnan, Director of IIMB. What are B-schools doing to nudge students towards entrepreneurship? Many times, students have to pay off loans. All of these reasons combined certainly delay management graduates’ plunge into entrepreneurship, further shrinking the pool of manager-founders compared to engineer-founders. “ Source: BusinessToday #IndianStartups
