Why do Startups fail? | Bikash Barai #Startup #Fail

This video is a part of the talks given at TEDxIITKharagpur 2015, produced independently of the TED conferences. In a highly competitive world, most startups believe that their success is hinged on the execution of a ground-breaking idea, and their failure is often attributed to bad execution to the said idea. But in this talk, Bikash Barai explains why execution is only secondary, primary being the idea itself. Through his own experience as a founder, Barai urges people to look for problems instead of ideas as an idea that solves a great problem is what makes the idea truly ingenious.
