Being an executive turned entrepreneur and thanks to the IIT background, have learnt big from the initial struggle and the later successes, about most of the what’s, why’s, how’s, when’s and where’s of setting up, sustaining and driving a business to grow. Due to the academic bent of mind and an interest in teaching, have read up a few books on the subject. Intend blending the academic inputs and personal experience, full of insights, into an interesting and pragmatic programme on the subject.

 

Have inspired and helped about half a dozen executives make the transition to entrepreneurs, successfully.
