Cinema has the power to take us to another world altogether, while we sit in the comfort of our homes or enjoy the luxury at a multiplex. Apart from providing the much-needed escape from reality, movies have the prowess to engage, excite and depress us in immeasurable means. While it is necessary for each of us to experience all the emotions, entrepreneurs would rather choose movies that motivate or encourage them to do the unthinkable.
When one speaks about motivational films that show the light end of the tunnel, it is evident that there is no dearth of them. But as entrepreneurs, we know that time is an asset that you cannot lose, which is why we are helping you save time from browsing through the plethora of options that are available on Netflix or Hot star. So, check these three iconic movies that are bound to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit inside you:
Pirates of Silicon Valley
What is more interesting than watching the two most beloved (and hated) entrepreneurs battle it out to climb the ladder of success? The Pirates of Silicon Valley is based on the lives of Steve Jobs (co-founder of Apple) and Bill Gates (co-founder of Microsoft) and how they became successful with the execution of their ideas in a garage. Apart from showcasing the nitty gritty of their lives, Pirates of Silicon Valley helps one understand how human nature and professional relationships entwine when competition is involved.
The Social Network3
Who does not idolise Mark Zuckerberg? The Facebook founder is one of the most adored entrepreneurs around, and as an aspiring entrepreneur, one shouldn’t miss out on watching The Social Network, which showcases the journey of the Harvard drop-out genius programmer build one of the most sought after platforms on the internet. While the film dwells into the technical aspects pertaining to Facebook, what makes it stand out is the inherent subplot which focuses on more humane aspects. Directed by David Fincher, The Social Network is one of the must-watch movies for entrepreneurs.
The Big Short
Whilst, The Big Short is unlike the two movies mentioned in the list, it sure has the story line and actors to motivate you to look at the hidden opportunities and get inspired from the same. The movie, albeit depressing for showcasing what happening during the 2007-08 financial crisis, informs the audience of what could or would happen if one remains ignorant. With Christian Bale and Ryan Gosling explaining to you what it is all about, entrepreneurs can learn to look for opportunities at the unlikeliest of places.
