Editor's Notes

    How many of you have work ex
    How many of you want to work post your program
    How many of you wish to Start up
    How many are undecided
    How many of those who wish to start up have family business or profession
  • Takeaway:
    The guy had a vision & was resourceful enough to get others on board that vision to realise his dreams.
    Start up founders have a similar role
