Myinspiration for becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own business leadingmyselfas well as my team to newbusiness Hieghts is:

Binny Bansal & Sachin Bansal- Flipkart

ThisIndian entrepreneur duo was the path pavers for new-age entrepreneurs in India.They started Flipkart from a house in Bangalore with INR 4 lakh of their ownmoney. The idea was to provide the Indian masses with a new and qualitye-shopping experience, with the internet starting to gain momentum. 

Asyou can guess, it's not easy to start something new. And the digitalentrepreneur duo also had their share of work cut out for them. It wasextremely hard for them to convince vendors to work with them, since nobodyunderstood the internet, yet. However, they persisted and launched Flipkart inOctober 2007, after finally convincing some vendors. And they soon receivedtheir first order, though the excitement for the victory turned sour when theirsupplier told them that the book was not available. But Sachin & Binny didnot give up. They set out to wander around town in search of the book on atwo-wheeler and ended up delivering the first (of many orders to come) to theircustomer themselves. The duo overcame this and every other obstacle that cametheir way with gusto. The rest as they say is history.  

Flipkart is one of the first homegrown andsuccessful e-commerce businesses in India. Even though the digitalentrepreneurs, Binny & Sachin Bansal have moved on from their brainchild,their efforts and success story serve as inspiration to many even today. ,Thisis what motivates me to become a successful entrepreneur.
