Director, Step by Step Group of Schools
Jayshree Periwal has that rare distinction of being the woman who revolutionized the education system in Rajasthan. In a span of just 13 years, her journey from 1 student in her garage to 4500 students and 5 schools is just exemplary. An iconoclast and a visionary, she exemplifies the age old tradition of ‘thinking big.’ Her story is one of perseverance, passion and hard work. Today, this traditional housewife has come a long way and is the founder, director and principal of five schools in the city of Jaipur. She has pioneered International Education in the state of Rajasthan by opening the first truly international school offering the IB and the IGCSE curricula. The international school started with 840 students in its first year of operation. This number is a record breaking figure for any International school not only in India but around the world. Another national record and feather in her cap was in year 2009 when 44 students from her school made it to the prestigious IIT’s, followed each year by a similar success rate. It will not be an exaggeration to say that the confluence of her avant-garde and archetypal education system has given thousands of students, the confidence and knowledge to excel in their chosen fields.
Born in the small town of Sirsa in Haryana, Jayshree was sent to the Scindia School, Gwalior for her education. She got a Bachelor’s degree from Delhi University and then did her Bachelor of Education and M.A. Sociology.
Jayshree discovered the true potential of the education industry in Rajasthan and dared to take the proverbial plunge. She started the ‘Step by Step High School’ a 10+2 CBSE school in a record time of 7 months and housed 750 students in year 2001. Not one to rest on her laurels, Jayshree’s next step was Step by Step International School (the first IB school in the state of Rajasthan). This innovative and path- breaking school incorporates the best practices from around the world and combines them with the Indian diligence and school of thought. She next dreams of establishing a University of international standards in Rajasthan.
She was recently awarded as the best Women Entrepreneur In India by Tie Tree-Shakti in Mumbai.
She was even invited by the Emory University, Atlanta, USA as a Guest of honour to speak on ‘School Leadership & Innovative Practices’. She has also received awards for her work in the field of education, namely the President's Award for Enlightened Citizens of the Nation and Dr. S. Radhakrishnan Award for remarkable contribution in the field of Education, Culture and Art.
Today, Jayshree stands tall with firm convictions, boundless ideas and a positive attitude. She was the only delegate chosen from Rajasthan to meet with a High Power White House Delegation in September 2010 to foster Indo-US relations by partnering in the field of Education and empowering rural Rajasthan.
A Rural Women Empowerment Program has been pioneered by Jayshree in which the students and teachers provide ICT education to rural women from the surrounding areas in the school premises. She is modern education personified whose dream is to bridge the educational gap between the haves and the have-nots. She is eager to take her skills and expertise to the Public-Private Partnership which she has been envisaged as the way forward for quality education in rural areas.
A homemaker, a painter and a dedicated mother to Swati and Ayush, Jayshree embodies all the qualities that make a complete woman. Her children are involved in the schools and are even more passionate about education than her. However, she credits her success to the support provided by her husband, Rupendra and her mother-in-law, Shakun in whatever she chose to pursue. She loves to travel with her friends and family and Europe is her favorite destination. Her mother Shanta Mohunta is her ideal and has been the inspiration and the strength behind all her endeavors.

Role of Liberalized Policies in Development of Entrepreneurs


Indian economy is one of the most exciting emerging markets in the world today. Its middle class population exceeds the populations of USA as well as of the European Union, and thus provides a lucrative free market opportunity. Its great heritage in terms of entrepreneurial culture coupled with its great strength as knowledge economy will pave the way for accelerated growth in the 21st century, if backed up by creating an eco-system to promote entrepreneurship. The challenge before policy planners lies in creating a conducive environment that encourages youth to take up entrepreneurship as a career option.Nurturing of an entrepreneurial mind set amongst youth through awareness and education would be the most powerful tool to encourage budding entrepreneurs to contribute to the growth and development of Indian economy.

New economic policy initiatives launched by the Government of India since 1991 have reduced protectionism; dismantled quantitative restriction on trade, financial sector reforms, permitted private economic activity in a number of areas previously reserved for public sector and reduced the extent of controls. In the emerging global environment, the socio-economic and political conditions are undergoing rapid changes particularly during the last one decade, which have resulted in growing economic competition internally and globally. This has led to innovation and application of newer and newer technologies. New technologies have a tremendous thrust for creation of new products, services and entrepreneurs. It is due to this spirit of entrepreneurship that India has witnessed a rise of a new breed of first generation technologically savvy entrepreneurs. To accelerate and sustain this spirit of entrepreneurship India needs to inculcate the spirit of entrepreneurship in the school and college curricula. As highlighted by Dr Mashelkar R A “our new innovative India will have to be built by concentrating on our youth, who represent the national strength, vitality and vigour. If properly moulded, the youth can become champion of our culture, custodian of our national pride and trustee of the freedom of the country. Our youth must imbibe the spirit of a true innovator". India is poised to come out with start-up technology ventures that will have a great impact within and outside.

As India opens up to market reforms, foreign direct investment will offer abundant opportunities for our technical manpower to be utilized in IT, biotechnology, financial services and manufacturing. To take advantage of this changing international commercial scenario, knowledge base of this young technical manpower can be used in entrepreneurial partnerships in economic growth at home.

Emerging corporate sector as also new generation entrepreneurs in a liberalized market economy would require developing a core competence in minimization of cost for globally accepted quality products and services at an opportune time with appropriate speed. Institutions in India – educational as also corporate entities - have to create a culture for innovations to keep coming out with new solutions to existing and emerging problems. Entrepreneurship development through educational interventions, government initiatives to encourage incubation and provide seed funding support coupled with favourable funding and networking support to start ups, will go a long way to give the much needed impetus to accelerated economic development.

Entrepreneurship and Global Warming


The issue of global warming and environmental changes has two way relevance for today's entrepreneurs. First, the existing and new entrepreneurs have to pay adequate attention towards the environmental upkeep in each of their business projects. These considerations would significantly affect the cost and profitability of their business. In addition, the same generation of entrepreneurs would be privileged to have a value added business status. Second, climate change solutions will create new business opportunities both for new and existing entrepreneurs. It will bring together the entrepreneurs, investors, inventors of new business solutions, social groups, business regulators etc. leading to global business cohesiveness.

All we need today is a global agreement on developing a mechanism for reducing emissions. Thinking of this issue of global warming entrepreneurially is a little alien to most of us. There are a million micro impacts of global warming leading to equal number of solutions and the search for many more business opportunities.

Women Entrepreneurs Challenges and Opportunities



All we need today is a global agreement on developing a mechanism for reducing emissions. Thinking of this issue of global warming entrepreneurially is a little alien to most of us. There are a million micro impacts of global warming leading to equal number of solutions and the search for many more business opportunities.

Women Entrepreneurs may be defined as the women or a group of women who initiate, organize and operate a business enterprise.
Women in Indian family system both in urban and rural set up have been playing a very important role of sustaining values, caring for family and going beyond to generate extra income.
Post-Independence, women entrepreneurship has significantly contributed in building modern Indian economy generating not only wealth but creating employment and worth repeating success stories which are too numerous to count.
Evidence shows that women contribute significantly to the running of family businesses mostly in the form of unpaid effort and skills.
The value of this effort is underestimated both by the families that take it for granted and in academic studies. Challenges:
Problems of raising equity capital, Difficulty in borrowing fund, increased pollutions Ecological imbalanced, Exploitation of small and poor countries, etc.
The greatest deterrent to women entrepreneurs is that they are women. A kind of patriarchal – male dominant social order is the building block to them in their way towards business success. Male members think it a big risk financing the ventures run by women. The financial institutions are skeptical about the entrepreneurial abilities of women. The bankers consider women loonies as higher risk than men loonies. The bankers put unrealistic and unreasonable securities to get loan to women entrepreneurs
Indian women give more emphasis to family ties and relationships. Married women have to make a fine balance between business and home. More over the business success is depends on the support the family members extended to women in the business process and management. The interest of the family members is a determinant factor in the realization of women folk business aspirations.
There are three major areas where women business owners may face challenges, less common to men in business:
1. Gender Discrimination and Stereotyping
2. Dual Career-Family Pressures
3. Lack of Equal Opportunities in Certain Industries
Some psycho-social factors impede the growth of women entrepreneurs are as follows:
Poor self-image of women, Inadequate motivation, Discriminating treatment, Faulty socialization, Role conflict, Cultural values, Lack of courage and self-confidence, Inadequate encouragement, Lack of social acceptance A major area of difficulty for women entrepreneurs is marketing. Several initiatives have been put in place to remedy this defect. At the initial stages women prefer to be locked into programmes which ensure almost total marketing support, since they seldom have the time or the confidence to seek out and develop markets. Even when they are otherwise in control of an enterprise, they often depend on males of the family in this area.
Marketing means mobility and confidence in dealing with the external world, both of which women have been discouraged from developing by social conditioning. Women's development corporations try to hold frequent exhibitions and set up marketing outlets to provide space for the display of products made by women.
A final area of concern in the case of women entrepreneurs is stagnation in their growth. This is due to various reasons like the demands of household duties, mobility problems and the need to expand space and staff. It is also often due to psychological causes like lack of self-confidence and fear of success (women who succeed often face hostility and resentment within their family circles). The necessary managerial and technical skills are also lacking, which is a barrier to the growth of women's businesses.
Opportunities:
Free entry into world trade, improved risk taking ability, Governments of nations withdrawn some restrictions, Technology and inventions spread into the world, Encouragement to innovations and inventions, Social and cultural development.

Issues Related to Minority Business Development



Minority Business Development is looked as a social entrepreneurial issue. A social entrepreneur recognizes a social problem and uses entrepreneurial principles to organize, create and manage a venture to achieve social change. It is a known fact that Social entrepreneurs are most commonly associated with the voluntary and not-for-profit sectors, but this need not preclude making a profit. Another dimension of this concept is about innovative, market-oriented approaches underpinned by a passion for social equity and environmental sustainability. Eventually, social entrepreneurship is aimed at transformational systems change that tackles the root causes of poverty, marginalization, environmental deterioration and accompanying loss of human dignity. A few examples of social entrepreneurs and their systems-changing solutions include:
· Muhammad Yunus' Grameen Bank which spearheaded microfinance globally
· Carlo Petrini's “slow food movement” which currently has 100,000 member in 132 countries committed to rescuing cultural traditions and the preserving biodiversity
· Wendy Kopp's Teach for America which transforms educational opportunities for low income groups whilst recruiting top university students to work in America's worst performing public schools.
Capturing the common characteristics of such extraordinary, diverse people is tough, but here are some especially noteworthy qualities : willingness to self-control, willingness to share credit, willingness to break free of established structures, willingness to cross disciplinary boundaries, willingness to work quietly and strong ethical impetus.
!Apart from this aspects need to be discussed include: Shrugging off the constraints of ideology or discipline Identification and application of practical solutions to social problems, combining innovation resourcefulness and opportunity !Innovation by finding a new product, a new service, or a new approach to a social problem.
!Many more issues of minority business development need to be discussed considering various cultural and political nature of any nation, thanks to internet sources for providing experiences of success stories of social entrepreneurs.

Role of Entrepreneurs in Global Recession



Entrepreneurs always help any nation during any crisis all over the world. A nation believes in its strength based strategies to prevent or to solve any harsher times. While recession continues to hurt business around the globe many industries in India have come out unscathed. Among BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), China and India never went into recession. Brazil briefly did, but its recovery seems pretty strong. India defied the global recession by posting a very healthy GDP growth rate of 7%. The fact that the Indian industry, so far, has remained insulated from the global recession can be attributed to its value systems, entrepreneurship and tradition. Entrepreneurship has been 'embedded in the Indian genius and is a part of its tradition'. Religion, norms, values, behaviour play a key role in nurturing the entrepreneurial ecosystem.

The Indian market with its one billion plus population, presents lucrative and diverse opportunities for western exporters with the right products, services, and commitment. Success Mantras claim that unlike western societies, in India, religion, fatalism and collectivism are all components of daily life and they need to be respected for a healthy and successful business relationship. Despite the traditional caste system being dismantled, remnants may still be witnessed in the Indian hierarchical structure of business practices and decision-making. Ever since the economic reforms began in 1991, India's market is growing rapidly. With its positioning in the Indian Ocean, a trade route, and with its mineral and agricultural resources, India's economy is witnessing increased inflows of foreign investments, thus presenting the competitive edge today in the world. This type of cases are available in many countries. A global perspective of entrepreneurs will bring out many more success stories.

Entrepreneurial Thinking in NGO


While Entrepreneurship has traditionally been viewed as private sector phenomenon, now it is no more limited to only business. Entrepreneurship is a universal concept and can be applied to NGOs, GOs, Education Institutes and all entrepreneurial people and institution. Entrepreneurship is not limited to any caste, gender, age or group of people. Any person/organization with the right mindset, drive and motivation can develop and possess entrepreneurial perspective. This perspective and mindset identifies a need and transforms it from creative and innovative ideas into reality.

Entrepreneurial thinking has to result in action and performance. ICECD, the centre having more that 500 % organizational growth, net worth of more than 2.5 crores and outreach to more than 10 million people and 65 developing countries has acclaimed recognition all over world and has carved out a niche in the development sector as a pioneer and leader in Women Entrepreneurship Development.

International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (ICECD), was born in 1986 with a dream to facilitate socio-economic and political empowerment of the underprivileged through Micro-Small Enterprise Development. The center's interventions revolve around income generation through self-employment/entrepreneurial activities, encompassing wide cross sections of the society.

The vision is to create a large pool of entrepreneurs through increasing their access over productive resources and foster the process of nonreversible developmental change, to enable socio-economic and political empowerment of the disadvantaged population, especially women.

A pioneer in designing and implementing Entrepreneurship Training Programmes for women, today the centre is working with business communities, government departments and development agencies across Asia, Africa, Pacific and Caribbean countries. ICECD has trained over 10,000 trainers directly, who in turn have developed the capacity of thousands of individuals and organizations. ICECD, recognized as a Center of Excellence by the United Nations/ESCAP, has many more dreams to create a better world.

The centre has a gender sensitive, pro-poor, need based, participatory approach in al its interventions that are carried out as per the needs of the society. Tribal and rural women at the grassroot level make a vital section on the centre's target group.

Presentation brief for International Management Conference (BICON-I) at Jaipur by Mr. Chandramauli Pathak, Sr. Executive, International Centre for Entrepreneurship and Career Development (ICECD), Ahmedabad.

Our entrepreneurial thinking within organization can be summarized as follow:
· An entrepreneur finds opportunities that others do not find. Entrepreneurial thinking is not just a passing fad and it does not lead to quick success. In order to be effective, the entrepreneurial spirit should be incorporated into goals, strategies and values of the organization. Encouraging entrepreneurial thinking among employees has changed their attitude towards the organization and themselves, providing them freedom to work and take challenging tasks has made them “Intrapreneurs”.

· Entrepreneurs ought to be business minded, spot opportunities and develop the ability to seize such opportunities before they vanish. The product development and diversification of ICECD ranges from new target groups of widows, primitive tribes, physically challenged, disaster affected to varied clientage like corporate SMEs, academic institutes, government departments, financial institutes etc. The centre has seized opportunities available in market, government and SME/Social sector.

· Learning how to think like an entrepreneur enables a person to stay ahead of others. ICECD's innovative thinking has brought innovative training models and training methods, innovative training methodology and materials and innovative approaches to identify motivate and develop entrepreneurs from all section of society.

· The spirit of entrepreneurship has led to less and less dependence on grants enabling centre to become self sufficient. Over the last 25 years centre has practiced understood, digested and developed entrepreneurial models and spread the entrepreneurial culture in creating enabling environment to foster entrepreneurship. The vision and dream of ICECD is to take entrepreneurship to “doorstep” of all women and rural people of our country and make lead them to “nonreversible development” process where they become proud, respected and productive citizens of our country.
Let us get infected by Entrepreneurial Thinking.

Entrepreneurs are Positive Destructors :Creative Destruction


The idea of creative destruction has proven to be an increasingly influential concept, not so much in economics, but more in a number of other social sciences, in the field of business administration, as well as being of importance to practical businesspeople. “Schumpeter's creative destruction is perhaps the most widely used metaphor in contemporary economic writing.” Thus, capitalism would not exist without creative destruction; capitalism would simply not be capitalism without creative destruction. To Schumpeter, creative destruction is a positive phenomenon. That is, on the one hand, it is seen as positive in the sense that it is a creative process producing that which is new. And, on the other hand, the destruction of the old is also viewed as being positive. The old is seen as standing in the way of the creation of the new and it must be destroyed in order to make room for the new, the ambiguity and the attraction of creative destruction is the fact that it is an oxymoron. It combines in one concept the contradictory ideas of creation and destruction. The concept of creative destruction is attractive because it is a contradictory and tension-filled concept that seems to fit well with a contemporary social, especially global, world that is also contradictory and laden with tension. Creative destruction can be seen as both a social processes and a social change and, as such, fits well in a world that is in continual process and undergoing constant change. Such a world needs to be analyzed dynamically and a dynamic concept like creative destruction is perfect for such a world. Creative destruction was designed to analyze economic developments, especially those that are business-related. Clearly, the economic and business worlds are increasingly paramount in the contemporary world and creative destruction is well-suited to examining it. Specifically, creative destruction was created to be of particular use in thinking about new economic and business-related developments. Creative destruction applies not to just economic phenomena, but also to a wide range of social and cultural phenomenon. Creative destruction has been extended and used in many areas beyond the realms of the economy and business. While this analysis begin with economic and business issues, it will also range far beyond those realms to deal with a fuller range of economic issues, as well as a far wider range of cultural and social issues. Deconstruction of creative destruction would lead to the following:

1. Creativity occurs first and that is what leads to destruction. That is, something new is created and its “newness” serves to drive out, to destroy the “old”, that which has become obsolete in light of the new.

2. According priority to creativity leads to several possibilities; that is it, in turn, can be deconstructed. Among other things, we can conceive of the new as wining out in its entirety, in large part, only in small part, and so on.

3. Destruction comes first and that makes way for the creation of the new; destruction leads to creations. That is, the new cannot come into existence until a “space” is cleared for it by the destruction of old forms. This assumes that the old is blocking, is in the way of, the new, or is even actively resisting the new in order to avoid destruction.

4. Awarding destruction priority also leads to several possibilities including the total elimination of the old, the elimination of a large part of it, and so on.

5. We also can conceive of extant forms that can continue to exist, in whole or in part, without impeding the new. That is, we can conceive of a world in which there is enough “room” for both the old and the new.

6. Furthermore, there is an assumption that the new automatically renders the old obsolete, but it is at least possible that the old can remain useful and coexist with the new.

7. Whichever comes first, creativity and destruction always occur together or in sequence. However, even in this case creativity and destruction can and should be disentangled.

8. We can think of both the creation of a new form without the destruction of an old one and the destruction of extant forms that does not involve the creation of new ones.

9. Creativity is always desirable. This is contradicted, however, by the creation of many things that most would consider undesirable (e.g. the atomic bomb). Further, there is the question of the unit of analysis in deciding on desirability and undesirability. For example, if our unit of analysis is the suburbs of New York City, building a highway to move people in, out and through the City is desirable, but if the unit is sub-communities in the City, especially those through which the road would run, such highways would be undesirable.

10.Destruction is always desirable. However, there are many examples of the old that should not have been destroyed, or at least that many people wish had not been destroyed.

The realities of globalization tend to clarify why it is necessary to tear apart the oxymoron that is creative destruction. The whole idea of creative destruction needs to be rethought in the “global age”. While we need to deconstruct the concept in various ways, the concept and the various derivatives that emerge from deconstruction remain highly useful tools for analyzing various strategies for entrepreneurial success.

New Challenges for Entrepreneurs :Managing Failure


As we step into the second decade of the 21st century, the future seems laced with increasing uncertainty. With global economic shifts, galloping technologies, changing consumer demands and rising political uncertainties, new venture success is becoming more and more elusive. In this turbulent environment, the biggest skill society needs to inculcate in entrepreneurs is the ability to comprehend and manage failure. While failures are extremely painful, they are also an unavoidable reality for all entrepreneurs. Most societies are however highly biased against failure, which tend to make citizens avoid risks and look down on failures. But creativity and innovation, which are essential ingredients for entrepreneurship, are always positively correlated with failures. It is therefore essential that we teach entrepreneurs how to manage, mitigate and learn from failures.
