But in reality, an entrepreneur solves a particular real-world problem through an innovative solution. The best example I would like to quote is swiggy. In this fast-running world, people miss their favorite food from their favorite restaurants. To solve this food delivery application was introduced by Swiggy. Now people can order their favorite food and enjoy them sitting in the home.

But fun all the time? No.
