In past difficult times, entrepreneurs have displayed far sightedness and creativity that could not have been believed to exist. These became the flagpoles of innovation and new technology today. I hope that the ability to find another way to build a product, run a company, run operations a better way, will emerge as an outcome of the current crisis. I won’t downplay the challenges and the difficulties embedded in these current times. But my confidence remains high in the inventive nature and the creativity of entrepreneurs today who will find ways to enable new or modified enterprises that would be the benchmarks of tomorrow. It can all start on a clean sheet of paper that looks at ways of doing things that were never thought of before. This crisis will force entrepreneurs to adapt and create.

Speaking about the challenges and difficulties in manoeuvring through the pandemic, he said that in order for a business to survive, innovation and technology are important.

“In past difficult times, entrepreneurs have displayed farsightedness and creativity that could not have been believed to exist. These became the flagpoles of innovation and new technology today,” Tata wrote in his post

Many thanked Tata for the motivational note. Take a look at some of the reactions:

Tata recently invested an undisclosed amount in an 18-year-old’s pharmaceutical company called Generic Aadhaar. The company started by Arjun Deshpande, who reportedly began the venture when he was 16, with the aim of making medicines affordable for the public.

The 82-year-old industrialist has invested in a number of startups including Ola, Paytm, Snapdeal and others since his retirement from the Tata group in 2012.
