Fortunately for entrepreneurs today the government has a lot of schemes to boost innovative start-ups. Startup India and NITI Aayog are amongst a few others. The government today is encouraging entrepreneurs, especially women to take initiative and create modes of employment for generations to come.

Where There Is A Will, There Is A Way: The Story Of How It All Began:
( As narrated by Arti Sudhir Nair, the founder of Archiipedia)
Most of my career as an entrepreneur I have done turnkey interior design. Early years of my career, I faced major challenges promoting myself in my career. Post marriage I was relocated away from home, and known circles.
I was surprised to learn that most architects and professionals faced this problem in the beginning, starting on their entrepreneurial journey. I noticed that the successful ones spent a lot of valuable time networking to find customers, instead of focusing on creativity and design. Most vendors also had the same problem. A lot of businesses failed to thrive for lack of time and resources to promote their services and products.
I felt our industry deserved a common platform to dignify this profession. I also noticed customers today would like to be well informed and make informed decisions about where they spent their valuable money and the quality of products. Unfortunately, there were not enough resources to demystify their questions and help them make informed decisions towards building the construction industry.
I felt I can and should disrupt things and change the way business is done in India. There was a strong urge to put together something to solve these problem statements. I wanted to do my bit for digital India”
Hence Archiipedia was conceived with the vision of creating a digital presence for India’s unorganized sector, large network of vendors and professionals of building construction industry
Narendra Modi’s grand vision for digital India, the need for architects and allied professionals, to grow their referral network, was instrumental in inspiring thoughts of having to do something to solve this problem.

A Message from the Founder: For Everyone Who Has a Dream to Fulfill
“Never stop dreaming. Enjoy the journey and do not worry about the outcome. Yes, you need to prepare yourself mentally for the challenges of entrepreneurship. Choose to do in life what you are good at, and what you are passionate about. When things don’t go in your direction, do not get overwhelmed by the tasks at hand. Trust your judgment and never regret wrong calls. Move on. Be it a good day or a bad day, keep energy levels high. Balance out between being enthusiastic and making calculated risks. If you think entrepreneurship is about being your boss, you are wrong. Your client is your boss and adding value to your clients’ life is what will make your business a success.”
