The Ronnie Screwvala Story - A Mumbai boy who went from being your regular South Bombay Parsi kid to being a MOGUL of the Indian business world.
His career began in the toothbrush industry. And today, at the age of 57 (after creating and solidifying multiple businesses), Mr.Screwvala is getting his hands dirty once again. Starting from the ground up with UpGrad - A company that intends on changing the way learning is perceived in India. Goes without saying, Ronnie Screwvala also wants to play a role in revolutionizing the Indian education system. If there's one man in India who is best suited to the job, it's this man.
Ever heard of UTV Motion Pictures? He did it. Ever heard of the U-Mumba Kabaddi team? He did it. Ever heard of one of the greatest episodes of #TheRanveerShow? He did it.
In this episode, we speak about everything from his start up journey to his greatest life hacks to his relationship with his wife (and co-founder), to mental fitness to communication skills to artificial intelligence and even the future of business in India.
Personally, I had the honour of hosting one of the most articulate men in India today. Juiced that opportunity and asked him everything I ever wanted to ask him. This episode is slightly heavy in terms of content. I recommend that you listen to it multiple times because it's one of those pieces where you'll gain something new every time you listen to it.
Had a blast talking to someone who I perceive to be one of my biggest idols in life - Ronnie Screwvala.
