A thought, a dream or a vision, entrepreneurship is now synonymous with these ambitious words as entrepreneurs set out on the challenging road of growing a business.
Globally, the pandemic recorded a boom in new businesses, with markets like the US recording a 95% increase in the number of applications for starting a new business in July 2020, as opposed to the same period in 2019, as per the Census Bureau. From grocery delivery to hailing a ride to finding a recipe for items in your fridge, these businesses do it all and much more. Naturally, a story that chronicles the struggles of entrepreneurs in today’s age of entrepreneurship boom, struck a chord.
The web series Pitchers, released in 2015, honestly and realistically narrated a tale of three friends on their entrepreneurial journey.
