The advancement in technology has lowered the barriers to entry for businesses, giving rise to startups in Malaysia.

More and more young graduates are keen on taking the entrepreneurship route in lieu of the traditional 9 to 5 employment.

Today, there are crowdfunding sites like pitchIN, or even government-linked agencies like Cradle Fund Sdn Bhd, that are certainly pushing this agenda by democratising the funding process for startups.

Putting aside the notion of glitz and glamour, is entrepreneurship really as what we imagine it to be? Does entrepreneurship guarantee riches and freedom?
