Satya Nadella, CEO of software giant, Microsoft said that his successes are built on what he learnt from failures.
On his visit to Telangana yesterday, Satya Nadella was involved in a chat with the young entrepreneurs at T-Hub and explained the plans of the Microsoft to help startups and the significance of last mile connectivity and failures.
When one of the youngsters asked about the way to deal with failure, Nadella said, “It's not about the failure, it's about learning from the failures. Failure itself cannot be celebrated. When I think about my career, my successes are built on learning from failures.”
Nadella further advised to the startups to note three important points.
1. Never lose the concept that drives you
2. The process of building the capability to chase that concept
3. Have that persistence and to curate the culture, you drive in your organisation on a constant basis.
Culture cannot be duplicated and especially in the small organizations like startups, it is impossible, Nadella opined. “The more you live it, the more sustainable your business approach becomes,” he said.
Appreciating the Telangana government’s initiative, Nadella said, “It's an amazing space for entrepreneurs and it's also inspiring to see that the government here is trying to build a facility such as this for startups.”
"When I grew up here, there was no T-Hub probably, the closest to T was the Tank bund," he said.
Nadella described Hyderabad as a vibrant city and opined that, wherever he goes he feels elated when people refer to the strides it has made.
Referring to the same, Nadella said, “We are here to be a part of your success, with our accelerators where we aim to work with T-Hub. But most of all, I'm here to be inspired by your dreams.”
The young entrepreneurs after concluding the chat with Nadella, were excited and one of such entrepreneurs, named Arshad Azhar said, “Seeing him from that close, hearing him and getting a chance to interact with him itself was fascinating.”
