Dear readers,

This is a nice article written by Rajat Gupta, former MD, McKinsey on “India needs more entrepreneurs”. A classic. Perhaps a little commercial on ISB but good reading:

Change agent, startup guy and MIT Sloan Fellow are probably the 3 best keywords that describe me. I have over 14 years of experience in the software/information services industry and have worked in both large consulting/offshore outsourcing/services firms as well as early stage sw startups in India and the US. My most recent stint was Director, BD, Mktg and Program Mgmt at AirTight Networks, venture-backed startup, HQ-ed in Mtn Vw, CA and incubated entirely in India.
For those of you who want to know where I studied, I am an alumnus of IIT-B and Purdue University. I currently live in Cambridge, MA.
