"The reality of a startup is you have failures very often." - Ritesh Agarwal

Ritesh Agarwal is an Indian entrepreneur, billionaire, and the founder and CEO of the country’s largest hospitality chain, OYO Hotels & Homes.
Agarwal started an online short-stay listing venture, Oravel, at a young age, which was renamed to OYO in 2013. Under his leadership, the Gurugram-headquartered OYO expanded rapidly from India to Malaysia and the USA, and today is present in 80 countries and in over 800 cities.
From a small-town boy who used to sell SIM cards in Odisha, he became one of the world's youngest self-made billionaires by the age of 22.

Lessons to learn from Ritesh Agarwal :

1. Stay away from family when you are working on a startup.

2. One should accept failure, and be willing to learn, unlearn and relearn again.

3. Nobody or no company in this world can say they have got everything right and it has been a perfect journey.

4. There is always room for improvement in experience and it can be achieved if one listens to the customers carefully.

5. While one is in the process of coming up with a truly innovative solution, it is essential to keep an open mind.


“Have a healthy disregard for the impossible.” – Larry Page

Lawrence Edward Page is an American computer scientist and entrepreneur who, with Sergey Brin, created the online search engine Google, one of the most popular sites on the Internet.
The two were both intrigued with the idea of enhancing the ability to extract meaning from the mass of data accumulated on the Internet. Working from Page’s dormitory room, they devised a new type of search engine technology.
Larry Page is perhaps the best business visionaries who established the framework for an endeavour that has changed the way, the web was utilized.

Lessons to learn from Larry Page :

1. If you’re changing the world, you’re working on important things. You’re excited to get up in the morning.

2. Always deliver more than expected.

3. Technology should do the hard work so people can do the things that make them the happiest in life.

4. You don’t need to have a 100 person company to develop that idea.

5. Coming up with an idea is the least important part of creating something great. It has to be the right idea and have good taste, but the ex*****on and delivery are what’s key.


Make your dreams global, don't keep them local. Let us innovate for India, from India.
- Narendra Modi ( Honorable Prime Minister)

In a symbolic boost to India's growing startup ecosystem, Honorable Prime Minister Narendra Modi has declared 16th January as National Startup Day. Currently, boasting of having more than 82 unicorns, the nation is rapidly moving towards hitting the century of unicorns and establishing its mark in front of the world. With the Indian startups scaling new heights of success, the rising wave of entrepreneurship is sweeping across the nation, which in itself, is something to feel proud of.

Team CIIC, in association with Geekonix, applauds the move and pledges to continue with the journey of supporting the young budding minds and help them to boost their future prospects.


“I choose a lazy person to do a hard job. Because a lazy person will find an easy way to do it.”
―Bill Gates

William Henry Gates III, popularly known as Bill Gates, is the name that crosses our minds when we think of computers. He is the owner of Microsoft, the world’s largest computer software company. Gates is a successful entrepreneur, investor, philanthropist, computer programmer and inventor. He has transformed the computer into a household product with all his innovations and a visionary approach to envisioning the use of a computer in every sphere of life. Gates spends most of his earnings for the welfare of people and for raising their standard of living. His entire life is a source of inspiration for all of us.
Lessons to learn from Bill Gates :

1. Don’t compare yourself with anyone in this world. If you do so, you are insulting yourself.

2. If you can’t make it good, at least make it look good.

3. If you are born poor it's not your mistake, But if you die poor it's your mistake.

4. Your most unhappy customers are your greatest source of learning.

*Mark Elliot Zuckerberg* is an American media magnate, internet entrepreneur, and philanthropist. He is known for co-founding
*Meta Platforms, Inc.* and serves as its CEO and controlling shareholder.
It all started with a coding project in Mark’s dorm room with a handful of his fellow college friends and now that project is known as the world’s largest social networking platform, which helps in connecting people with more than 1 billion active users around the globe, and more than $12 billion in annual revenues. A single Facebook search will help you to reach someone who is far away.

*Lessons to learn* from *Mark Zuckerberg* :

1. A simple rule of business is, if you do the things that are easier first, then you can actually make a lot of progress.

2. Move fast and break things. Unless you are breaking stuff, you are not moving fast enough.

3. Nothing influences people more than a recommendation from a trusted friend.

4. People think innovation is just having a good idea but a lot of it is just moving quickly and trying a lot of things

5. The question one should ask themselves almost every day is, ‘Am I doing the most important thing I could be doing?’

CEO - entrepreneur, born in 1964, Jeffrey Bezos is an e-commerce pioneer, and the founder of the company Amazon. He is also the owner of "The Washington Post" and founder of the space exploration company Blue Origin. His successful business ventures have made him one of the richest people in the world.
Before starting Amazon, Bezos worked at a quantitative hedge fund. He left the comfort of a high paying job to start a small online company originally selling books out of his garage. He chose the whisper of dream over the life he was content with. He chose the great over the good. He had a vision that helped him reach heights of unparalleled success.

Lessons to learn from Jeff Bezos :

1. One of the only ways to get out of a tight box is to invent your way out.

2. If you’re good at course correcting, being wrong may be less costly than you think. Whereas being slow is going to be expensive for sure.

3. It’s not an experiment if you know it’s going to work.

4. The keys to success are patience, persistence, and obsessive attention to detail.

5. Any business plan won’t survive its first encounter with reality. The reality will always be different. It will never be the plan.

6. The common question that gets asked in business is, ‘why?’ That’s a good question, but an equally valid question is, ‘why not?
