a. Belief in themselves. They are passionate and even at a young age have the capacity to thing differently. People who have moved from India, from an environment, where questioning a system-largely- is not encouraged, suddenly find themselves into an environment, where to move up the ladder, you need to think differently, and have a firm belief in your idea, and in yourself.
b. Trust. The entrepreneurs who have shared their learning and experiences have found another most significant enabling factor in US is Trust. People trust each other. Even if it is a kid who tells his parents that he is going to go independent and create something of his/her own, he is encouraged. The freedom to carve your own niche, to build your own road, to make your own destiny, firmly motivates the people to go ahead and succeed.
c. The Network: As Robert very rightly said, you have successful entrepreneurs, the investors and funding agencies, and professionals from entire support system that enable you to remain motivated and follow your goal. There is a positive ecosystem that encourages you to network and benefit from the experiences of others.
The successful entrepreneurs who have returned from US and setup their own enterprise in India, are endeavouring through organisations like TiE to build a system of mentorship for the budding youngsters who are full of ideas and looking for the right break.
