Cover StoryIt’s a known fact that Indian entrepreneurs are one of the back engines of Silicon Valley economy. Over the years they always continued to transform things around them and have created a better impact in the community to consider them as the best masters to lead a company. The best testimony is the recent appointment of Satya Nadella as the CEO of Microsoft, which disapproves of the common perception – “Indians do not know how to delegate authority and cannot lead companies”. Not only are these Indian technocrats and serial entrepreneurs smart enough to lead the world’s largest technology companies but are also capable enough to comfortably run parallel entrepreneurial ventures.
