Entrepreneurship in Assam- Introduction


Entrepreneurship in Assam is like a beautiful dream.

Are you living in Assam

And do you have any awesome startup idea to start soon?

Are you excited to implement these all? Is anybody discouraging you on the way of your goal? 

There are tons of question in front of an Assamese guy, who wants to start his/her own business

So hi guys I am Akash and today I am going to share with you three main facts, because of which an Assamese youth does not try to become an entrepreneur or to start his/her own business.

So, do you want to explore these three core facts?………

if you really do then don’t go anywhere and stick with this post……….

So, before we start- my first question is to you, what do you think does business or entrepreneurship comes from blood or mind? Generally, most of the Assamese people (not all) believe that business comes from blood but I think this is complete nonsense. 

Business or entrepreneurship is not a god gifted thing that it flows in our blood. OK, I will explain to you below, why they think in this way? [Don’t worry I am also an Assamese guy and my name is Akash Gogoi]

3 The Main Problem of Youth Entrepreneurship in Assam

1. The first reason is no generation connection. 

Just approach Marwadi business families. Do you know what is the main secret element in their success stories?

The main secret is…………..

these business families have been doing the same business from generation by generation, 

………there is no such business generation gap in their families. However, I am not trying to say all Marwadi people are businessmen or businesswomen. 

But look at our Assamese people, there are a very small number of people who have been doing the same business from multiple or two, three generations.

It means less generation connection between two business generations in that community. 

For this reason, new Assamese youth becomes unable to understand a business idea very sincerely. Because they have no mentor to be guided. Hence they thought it is a game of blood not mind. And many times youth left out their dreams from their mind to become an entrepreneur. 

There is a very common thought among our people that Business is only for Marwadi’s not for us.

(I am also an Assamese and that is why I have already faced these all problems)

If you are an Assamese and if you already express your business ideas in front of your mom and dad then maybe you already listen to these kinds of things from them.

2. My second point is based on “No Pain, No Gain”. 

Would you like to become a Millionaire or billionaire overnight?

of course who doesn’t want to be! 

me too………..

but it does not happen in the real world. 

If you have a dream to become a successful entrepreneur then you may definitely listen about great entrepreneurs like Elon Musk, Jeff Bozos and Warren Buffet. 

Actually, entrepreneurship is not an easy concept; it is not possible to build overnight. 

Do you know why Elon Musk, Jeff Bozos and Warren Buffet are the most successful business personalities on the planet? 

Because they are very hardworking, they never want to stop anymore, they were beaten down but never give up any more and look at Assamese peoples lazy life; 

they don’t want to do hard work either they are unable to take risks and lack of never giving up attitude. 

Now you tell me how a person could achieve success in his/her life with these kinds of attitude. entrepreneurship is too far away.


3. My third point is the Education system. 

I already told you that entrepreneurship is not an easy concept. it is to be learned and to be practiced. The Education system of India or Assam is not compatible with entrepreneurial skill development.

Here the education system does not encourage their students to innovate new ideas and implement them. 

the traditional education system has been dropping down the concept of the growth of Entrepreneurship in Assam.


2 main ways to solve entrepreneurial problems in Assam

1. be educated: – Education is my first preference among all other things.

Its education which makes us different from other species, and again it’s the education which helps us to become a master in a particular field.

No matter is it formal or informal, but my friend always tries to be educated yourself. Learn from nature, learn from your environment.

[Knowledge is everywhere flowing around you, just catch it and use it in your life]

It will help you to learn, how to solve common people’s problem.

If you learn this first discipline of entrepreneurship, then nobody will be able to stop you in your life.

So, try being a master and always educating yourself.


2. Learn how to stay motivated: – Sometimes we see motivational videos on YouTube for motivation and this is also true, it motivates us a lot.

But do you know what happens after a few hours or days later?

You know the answer, right.

Yes, the motivation goes down and then after more days later we completely lost that motivation.

But why it happens?

The reason is that we don’t know how to get stay always motivated.

So now ask yourself, what to do to get always motivated?

Actually, my friend, motivation is an internal energy of your soul that gives you the power to do work again and again.

If you are finding a simple way to stay motivated then first try to learn ‘Bhagwat Geeta’ and try to implement its materials in your life.

Now, if you still get difficult to understand Bhagwat Geeta then doesn’t need worry.

I have another simple solution to it. Just watch ‘Mahabharata’ to understand it; this is the easiest way to observe Bhagwat Geeta.

I am 100% sure this will show you the right way how to get motivated, ok.



There are also many other reasons why the youth of the state try less to become an entrepreneur. 

But these three I explained are the main key factors that I think about personally. And therefore I thought to share with you.

If you agree with the three points then comment with ‘Yes’ and if no then comment with ‘No’. If any other question in your mind related to this post then please let me know, we will try hard to solve it.

Thank You.

That was like- YOU READ MY MIND OUT.
Definitely its the core spirit of doing business in most of the assamese guys that is missing, as in general such things seems to be unconventional which in turn scares us of slipping off a lazy and mediocre life. No offense-sardonic but true.
