What makes start-ups successful?

Ideas that solve specific problems are the seeds from which start-ups emerge and grow. But just as seeds develop roots and shoots only when they get the right soil, sunlight and water, start-ups too need a healthy ecosystem to nourish and protect them.

Beyond their vision and passion, entrepreneurs must be able to craft the right strategies that they must then implement efficiently. They must have easy, convenient and cost-effective access to the right tangible and intangible resources they need at different stages of their growth. At times, entrepreneurs need someone to hold up a mirror, ask the tough questions and guide them so that they can course correct if necessary. But not all start-up teams possess (or have access to) these vital ingredients.

Orygin seeks to provide and enable the above during the early stages of your venture. Come, be a part of our ecosystem. Even a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step. Make sure your first step is right.
