Interviewer: What will you suggest to the young entrepreneurs with creative ideas ?
Aadil Mehta : Find a problem, see if others have the same problem and if it's a big enough problem to be solved, figure the best way to do it. If the problem is not universal or only personal, it may not warrant a creative solution. Entrepreneurs need to be problem solvers and if your creative ideas can do that than you have a winner.
Interviewer: How do you think creativity has an edge over other things in running a business?
Aadil Mehta : The dictionary meaning of Creativity is "the use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness"
This pretty much explains why it has an edge as it brings out originality to the organisation and gives it a good reason to exist.
