Advisor, Udhyam | Co-founder, Flipkart
Entrepreneurship solves a very important problem for the country. By building entrepreneurial mindsets, we are setting people up to succeed. I have seen Mekin do this phenomenally well in Flipkart and I am happy to see him scale this thinking to the entire country.
Essentially, Udhyam is teaching people "how to fish" and I am excited about the way talent in the organization is problem-solving for it.
I wish Udhyam all the very best!

Natarajan's heart is very close to Udhyam since concept thinking with Mekin, as his passion is education, entrepreneurship and, a self reliant society.
