4) Adam Neumann – Co-founder & CEO WeWork
Israeli born Adam, who has visited India for the first time just before 5 days is really enthusiastic and refreshing about the Indian entrepreneurs. Here is what he said.
Being part of something greater than yourself is the future. Define success not just by making money, ability to give and receive is success. If I treat you the way I wanna be treated, that will bring success.
The goal is not earning money, the real goal is finding something you love. Bring a change and everything will follow you.
One thing I learnt from the past 5 days is “You do not need to from India to love India.”

5) OHO Rooms – Ritesh Agarwal
Later on stage, came the youngest entrepreneur of India who dropped out at his age of 17 and who owns more rooms than that of Taj Group of Hotels. Yes you guess it right, it’s the founder of OHO Rooms – Ritesh Agarwal
He has really caught the feelings of the young generations and mentioned that he dreams that more number of citizens in India will be self employed rather than working as employees for other companies across the world.

7) Sachin Bansal – CEO FLipkart
Money follows great businesses unless you have dumb investors who do not understand the business at all. At Flipkart, we have always tried finding investors who understand our business,” he said.

8) Neeraj Kakkar – Founder – Paperboat
Recalling his days back in school, when he was the only kid in his family to go to a private school and join a school of English medium and he had no clue about speaking English.
I believe and dream to be the best, not only in India but across the world.

9) Prime Minister Narendra Modi takes over the stage filling the audience with sparkle and charisma to dream big. Saying is believing…What is all about startup India?
Modi was regretting why he didn’t get the idea of hotel rooms when he was a ‘chai wala’. But he was sure about the young entrepreneurs who will change the fate of India.
An entrepreneur has adventure hidden within him.

Youth should be job creator instead of job seeker. Every individual in India has its own idea, but the ideas evolve and die every day. Only those who get dissolved into the idea bring it into real time. He who has the vision brings the change.
Even if a start-up helps 5 citizens of India, then it’s a successful start-up according to me.
Witness innovation as a global leader. Bring innovation in agriculture,science and medicine, not ony in IT industry.
If there are millions of problems there are billions of minds to solve it in India.
