 5 Lessons Batman Teaches Us About Entrepreneurship

The Batman (trilogy) has been one of the most successful and among the highest grossing movies of all time, influencing people in many aspects, but who thought it’d inspire and teach lessons for entrepreneurship as well. A person having two personalities, one of a superhero having cool and deadly weapons, covered in a dark costume with a mask and pointy ears, wearing a jet black cape, and having superhuman abilities to defeat the bad guys. Another personality is of Bruce Wayne, a complex person with a lot of wealth but having no interest in spending or living a luxurious life.

A sense of responsibility for helping other people, filled with anger and sadness. But playing a role of a superhero as well as being a wealthy businessman. Besides entertainment, all three movies are filled up with some of the great life lessons, among them there are 5 great things which The Batman has taught us related to entrepreneurship and Business.

Understanding The Mindset Of The Audience

Bruce Wayne had been a famous person which was coming as a barrier of self-discovery and getting the mindset of criminals, that’s why he traveled to the east so that he is able to discover his skills and abilities. Besides this, he also does some criminal activities to learn what it feels like to be a criminal. After living the life without any wealth and like a criminal he was finally able to discover his inner working, capabilities, and mindset of criminals.

This experience of Batman teaches us one very important factor which is to think like a customer. Noticing problems in your organization will help you to improve them, that is why you need to get into the mindset of customer and think accordingly. Think what you would want from an organization and target those ideas, which will help you to make your business better.

Figure Your “Why” Out

 5 Lessons Batman Teaches Us About Entrepreneurship

Bruce Wayne starts to eliminate corruption because of he had a motive which was to stand against it and carry his parents legacy. There was no ego or thunder of revenge involved, only due to he wanted to stand up against those things which his parents stood against. His “why” was all about the desire to carry that legacy.

The same method applies in the business world, having a business is just not about making profits, but you should have bigger goals and motives. Money can be earned through various ways, right or wrong, but you need to figure out the main objective of choosing to be an entrepreneur, so you need to work on your “why”.

Go For The Idea Already

Bruce Wayne just had an idea of doing something symbolic which could not be destructible or corrupted by anyone, he did not wait to figure out a proper plan, just had the sense of passion which made him the Batman on which the whole city depended on.

This is exactly what you need in your life, you don’t need to wait till you figure every single detail about your plan and then start working on it. Just the idea and willingness to strive and accomplish the goal of success in your business should be enough to get you going, you will eventually figure out things working on your idea with time and soon your entire idea will be in physical form.


As the batman starts implementing his idea practically, he finds out that fighting crime would need him to be good at fight skills, he trains for it. Then he finds out that he would need to jump on the buildings and other high places covering distances, he gets his cape designed for soft landings and for covering a long distance. He adapted and improvised.

Adapting improvising should be your keys towards success too. You should look for the space of improvements and work on them until you successfully improve them in your business. As you will offer your services or products in the market, you need to take feedbacks as well, analyze them and improvise your business accordingly.

Teamwork And Trust

Batman has been a superhero, saving thousands of lives and eliminating dangers from the city, but not single-handedly. He always had help from other people when he needed them like in the film, he gets helped by Jim Gordon, John Blake, the robin of the movie, then Selina Kyle, a cat burglar with a good heart. He did not achieve his goal all by himself, but he always had support from his allies.

Similarly, you’ll need help from other people building your goals and achieving your aims. As I mentioned earlier, it is not the one-man show, it’s not about ego, it’s about getting what you want. That is why having a team of allies is important in your life as well so that you are able to make your business flourish better.


These are the 5 great lessons which we learned from The Batman which in my opinion can be very helpful in entrepreneurship. That’s why you should try to keep these tips in mind while handling your business, making new ventures, or planning to establish a new business. Beside this, you should try to avoid the deadly mistakes that entrepreneurs make during their business journey.
