The Indian Startup Superstars
Bangalore: “Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” - Mark Twain.
Some people attribute success to the achievement of a goal but Winston Churchill said, “Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” In the pursuit of stability, most of us forget many aspirations we had that drove us to do many crazy things as a child. We grow up and eventually go where life leads us, to a cubicle with a computer or an office with a table and an intercom but here are 12 Indian entrepreneurs who didn’t stand by and watch as their aspirations drifted away. They caught hold of opportunity and took flight with nothing more than a feather of an idea.
#12 Alok Kejriwal:
