Turning to seniors for advice is passe for India’s new entrepreneurs


Who would you turn to for advice if things were not going according to plan at the workplace? Somebody much older and wiser who has been there, done that, and you can look up to? Well, many young entrepreneurs do not seem to be settling for this seemingly default option.

Harsh Jain, the founder of interior design and building services startup Nestopia, regularly bounces ideas on strategy off fellow entrepreneur Mayank Lhila, co-founder of travel startup Tripifini.

In the past couple of months, Lhila has helped Jain with legal resources and advice on issuing employee stock options or ESOPs. And this works both ways, with Jain giving Lhila suggestions on a viable online marketing strategy.
