What To Expect

In our second episode, we shine the spotlight on two outliers in the Indian startup and entrepreneurship ecosystem, Zoho founder Sridhar Vembu and Zerodha founder Nithin Kamath. Both Sridhar and Nitin built billion dollar businesses with zero external funding, disrupted the space they operate in and are now keen to create societal impact by backing initiatives related to rural revival, climate change and education. They embody the confidence and aspirations of a New India.

Watch Vembu & Kamath unpack life lessons that made them original thinkers and better leaders.
