Insights From the Founder of Software Startup GraffersID

GraffersID founder.

Any entrepreneur can tell you, launching a startup is a learning process. Therefore, one of the best things you can do prior to launching a startup of your own is to learn from those who have blazed the trail. We were fortunate enough to hear some valuable insights during our interview with Sidharth Jain of GraffersID that will inspire, motivate, and teach aspiring and established entrepreneurs alike.

What advice do you have for aspiring entrepreneurs?

“If you aspire to do something in life, don’t wait for it to happen. Time is precious, and success comes to those who use time and energy in a productive way. Establishing a business needs planning, and to make it successful, you have to be super active and productive. So, don’t just wait for things to come your way. Chase it and make it yours.”

What is the best you’ve found to avoid burnout as an entrepreneur?

“Entrepreneurial life is not about meetings in fancy coffee shops … As an entrepreneur, you have a busy work life, and you cannot take weeks off, but you cannot avoid your personal life too. I manage to take time for myself, and in that time, I try to be creative instead of thinking about my ongoing problems.”

What is your advice for coming up with a unique startup idea?

“In my opinion, start your startup with things you are passionate about and understand your target markets, and importantly, stay focused on your goal.”

What is your advice for overcoming challenges and failure?

“Challenges are everywhere, and now and then, you have to face them anyhow. So, better go with the flow and live the challenges instead of running from it. Rather [than] being an overthinker, be a creative thinker. Spend your time finding solutions for your problems. You might fail, but you will get experience from it.”

What is the biggest lesson you learned and what can aspiring entrepreneurs take from it?

“In my entrepreneurial journey till now, I have learned a lot as an entrepreneur and as a person too. The most important thing for an entrepreneur is relations. You should connect with people, know them, their goals, their working schedule, and try to extract valuable things from them. 

Never leave your client unhappy or disappointed. Win their trust and provide them valuable service.”

What is the best advice you’ve ever received?

“I always believe in failing, experimenting, and making mistakes. Failure is a part of our life, do not fear failing. Make mistakes and learn from them. Experiment [with] new ideas no matter how many times you fail, but do not stop.”
