BQ Big Decisions: What You Need To Know If You Want To Launch Your Own Startup
The BQ Big Decisions podcast gets you the insight you need to make big money decisions with confidence.
Launching a startup takes enormous conviction, especially if you are quitting your job to do it and don’t have the backing of a large investor. It can also be a drain not just emotionally, but also on finances.
Often, startup founders funnel their life’s savings into the venture. Radhika Gupta, chief executive officer of Edelweiss Asset Management Company, did just that in 2009 when she launched Forefront Capital Management. She had quit her job as a consultant with McKinsey.
On this BQ Big Decisions podcast, BloombergQuint spoke to Gupta about the life changing experience of launching a startup, and what prospective startup owners should keep in mind when it comes to their finances.
