Anant Agarwal: failure is not starting up

After many years of being an entrepreneur, Anant Agarwal now faces the challenge of launching his first non-profit company, ‘edX’, of which he is both CEO and co-founder.  For this expert on of the most important things an entrepreneur must do is to start getting rid of the pressure.  There’s nothing wrong with failing, you can always go back, “large companies like entrepreneurs.”

Agarwal, who is also a professor at MIT, sends out an important message to young Europeans: “If you have an idea and you don’t start the company, this is failure.”

Yes Nakul! I like the aspect of the entrepreneurship life that Anant Agarwal highlights that we can return to a large company after trying to starting up a business, because iIf there is something that companies value today is the experience in CV!
