India has a richly thriving startup ecosystem today, and is only paving the way for more to crop up and become the next leaders of the economy. Startups need entrepreneurial risks, or better, risk-taking entrepreneurs with a vision that demarcates their venture from the rest. Here is a talk for those on the lookout for what separates the winning ideas from the losers.
