Ep 228 - The Co-Founder of Brú Finance on Embracing Change
How many times have you felt like you’ve failed, peers?
Did you know that 20% of start ups fail within their first year? This jumps to 60% if you account for the first three years. This isn’t meant to be disheartening, rather, it’s a cold, hard fact that we as entrepreneurs need to be aware of.
One person who didn’t let this statistic bring them down is Abhishek Bhattacharya, the Co-Founder of Brú Finance.
Abhishek started three companies before finding success in building India’s first Agri-Fintech Blockchain platform.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, Abhishek shares why we need to expect failure, how he gained funding for his company, and why you shouldn’t go the distance by yourself.
As entrepreneurs and founders, we often think we need to handle everything by ourselves. From finding investors to paying people’s salaries, or even just starting a business from scratch, the entrepreneurial race can feel like a neverending marathon.
But it doesn’t need to be that way.
In this episode of Peers2Peers, powered by Shopify, we sit down with Abhishek Bhattacharya, the Co-Founder of Brú Finance.
Abhishek is building India’s first Agri-Fintech Blockchain platform to help the economy and farmers of the global south. But he didn’t get to helping thousands of people all by himself.
The Co-Founder shares why we need to find other entrepreneurs in similar fields to guide us, how to change your mindset from employee to employer, and how to embrace change.
