It is unanimous, now is when is the best time to start in Latin America, especially in the digital field.
“It is now, when the rules of the future are being written, and one can be a part of this.”
Opportunities exist, but seizing them is not easy. “One is told that undertaking is difficult, but it is much worse than one imagines.”
And yet, entrepreneurship catches us. Next, I will summarize the main keys to successfully undertake innovative projects, as a synthesis of the interviews with 20 digital leaders of the region, the Big Thinkers Iberoamerica:
One of the most common mistakes in entrepreneurs is their tendency to get stuck with too many things and get involved in several projects at the same time.
In order to be successful, it is essential to always keep in mind the objective pursued and this forces, in many cases, to let pass small opportunities and illusions that are crossed.
Effort and perseverance: Ideas are many and many, the true value is in the execution of the idea, in patience and perseverance. It is difficult to maintain the illusion when achievements take months, or years to arrive. Draw the roadmap with small objectives, this will help you move towards your final goal.
Learn to live with failure. Along the way, there will be many barriers and errors, major and frequent, the more innovative the objective is. They are just erroneous paths that are closing and bring us closer and closer to success. Rectify on time. Do not wait to have the project closed. Test a prototype as soon as possible.
The market should be a permanent reference to adjust the progress of the project or rethink it in a timely manner, especially in this environment that advances against the clock.
It is difficult for a single person to tackle an innovative project. Surround yourself with people who are complementary to you and, if possible, with more knowledge than you, and do not forget to explain the terms of the relationship from the beginning. Global market
In the digital field, in general, it is more viable to undertake for the global market, than for a local one. Andes Barreto.
Innovation occurs at full speed in almost all digital fields. The connection and cooperation between the agents of the digital ecosystem is an increasingly clear premise, for the survival of the whole. Entrepreneurs who are isolated with their developments from the rest of the community have no future.
Faith in the pursued objective, seeking to cover an initially own need or the dream of changing the world, and the passion for the work to be done, are the best allies to dedicate the time and attention needed to be the best and overcome the obstacles that are presented. In a world of passionate people, it is difficult to succeed part-time.
