CAs not active in the startup world

From Ola to Flipkart to any random startup today, I haven't read about a single CA student who went on to try creating a startup, forget a successful startup. Most CA students are discussing package and salary before even writing finals, this shows their orientation towards getting a higher packages. I am curious to know why CA's are lacking dynamism to create business while IIT and IIM and other B.Tech - MBA students are storming the scene. I am in noway saying job is not good but it would be good to see a few CA startups considering the fact a CA is really strong in finance, tax and account matters. There was a generation of CA's who ruled the Indian stock markets from Jhunjhunwala, Motilal Oswal, Anand Rathi, Ramdeo Agarwal, even Ketan Parekh. What are your views friends..
