While it might rarely get as dramatic in reality when you start your business, it is important to be cautious at all times so that you don’t end up in dilemmas that might eventually lead to losing your company. All in all, this is a must-see series for budding entrepreneurs who feel they have a one-of-a-kind concept that has the potential to transform the world.

If you want a book on Web 2.0 (which emphasizes ‌user-generated content) business models, look no further than Silicon Valley. The show follows six young entrepreneurs who are trying to get their startup off the ground in Silicon Valley. Richard Hendricks, a 10x engineer (an engineer who achieves 10 times more than an average engineer), decided to leave his job at a tech giant to build Pied Piper, which is a Silicon Valley startup with a unique value proposition of a super-efficient compression algorithm. He and his team have to fight against multinational company Hooli to succeed in the fierce competition.

Apart from being an entertaining show, this series will provide insights into entrepreneurship through the eyes of young entrepreneurs trying to make it in the rocky and competitive business world. You will definitely learn a lot from the obstacles the protagonists face in the show, such as making bad business decisions, competing against rivals who are out to get you, misunderstanding the market needs, etc.

5. “The Office”

This hit comedy depicts a captivating study of human behaviors in their everyday work lives along with some amusing lessons on what not to do at the office. This mockumentary (which describes fictional events but is filmed in a documentary style) sitcom features outstanding comedy performances and memorable characters, such as the harmlessly ignorant insensitive boss Michael Scott (Steve Carnell), the righteous receptionist Pam Beesly (Jenna Fisher), the bored but likable salesman Jim Halpert (John Krasinski) and his bootlicker rival Dwight Schrute (Rainn Wilson). 

Why watch it? The series depicts the current corporate culture and the dead-end employment that many individuals sweep themselves into. Within those daily lives, however, there still is significance and hope as well as a bit of humor left. Indeed, “The Office” will make you think about why you want to be a business owner and which route you want to take in work and life.

Where can you watch it? Amazon Prime Video

These web series will not only inspire but also keep you entertained while you’re enjoying your cup of coffee or tea!
