    Praful Billore

    Prafull Billore, also known as MBA Chai Wala is mostly known by his YouTube Videos. But what many might not know about him is that he is a very tenacious businessman. And he has built himself a quite successful tea business. While doing his bachelor’s degree he was actually having trouble studying; so he thought of starting his own business. He wanted to go for further studies and get an MBA but he could not get a seat in any colleges. At the age of 20, he was devastated because of his CAT exam results. This failure only made his goal of owning his own business stronger.

  • Srikant Sastri

    Srikant Sastri

    Srikant Sastri is known as “Mentor on a Mission” because of the passion with which he mentors hundreds of entrepreneurs across India. When he became an entrepreneur in 1995, terms like ‘startup’, ‘venture capital’, or ‘mentoring’ were unheard of in India. Without such support, his business initially went through very difficult times, and at one point he was down to the last ten rupees in his wallet. Eventually, the gods smiled, and he built two large companies with 18,000 employees in six countries. Both businesses got acquired by European companies. He now spends a big portion of his time in mentoring because he doesn’t want today’s startups to make the same mistakes that he did. During the 2020 pandemic lockdown, Srikant led a taskforce that built a world-class ICU ventilator in 90 days. This unique experience has now been captured in a bestselling book, ‘The Ventilator Project’.
