  Young Entrepreneur Award -2017 from KU Education ..

Is there an entrepreneur in you ?

KU's Young entreprenuer

"I was thinking of creating my own companies and was dreaming about implementing my own ideas with freedom since my childhood ,so I believed that I could serve better to people and that would lead me to make more money too. Making money is not the sole spirit of entrepreneurial mind ,the achievement is the key . the freedom I have is the satisfying factor,success is the driving force behind people like us failures used to occur but those never stop from moving forward ,failures are like a strict teacher with cane who teaches valuable lessons whether we like or not ."

Entrepreneurs are people ,who love freedom ,who think beyond the limits ,who have a passion towards achievements not money . I have many role models for my career ,but no one touched me like the great Steve Jobs , former C.E.O and Founder of Apple Inc did.
