14 Traits of Highly Successful Startup Founders

Jul 18, 2019

Bangladeshis are generally entrepreneurial in nature. The economic growth, social development and other meaningful progress that you see in our society today is a direct result of the enterprising nature of the people of this country.

That being said, entrepreneurship as a career, particularly among the educated class, is a relatively new phenomenon in Bangladesh. Although people are generally enterprising, most middle-class parents are at best reluctant to allow their kids to pursue business as a career.

It is a surprise how this mentality has become a dominant nature of a society which mostly relied on the enterprising nature of its people to move forward.

Even these days entrepreneurship is not something that most parents would encourage their kids to pursue. Similarly, most of our educational institutions don’t offer much room for developing entrepreneurial pursuits in students. There are some sporadic initiatives of late, but they are mostly insignificant. As a result, starting and building companies is not easy in Bangladesh.

To make the situation more precarious, supports available for aspiring entrepreneurs are meager at best. Education regarding how to go about building a startup remains a challenge.

Being an entrepreneur or a startup founder is not an easy task. There are tonnes of factors that affect your success as a founder. Some of them you can control and others you can’t.

Among the things that you can control, your habits and skills are some of the factors. It has been found the time and again that successful entrepreneurs share some consistent characteristics and habits. Developing these habits and skills could improve your chance as a founder.
