The twin duo not only shaped the future of Reliance but also brought a high-speed net to millions of people including us. Firstly, it’s difficult to outsmart your parents when they are billionaires. They don’t need credits but it is nevertheless good to get some. Reliance Jio and Ajio are their offerings to us. We are very thankful to keep them on our list.
#3 Unheard chess prodigy Nikhil Kamath
Firstly, if we leave the chess incident aside then we have a very good man smiling from the image above. He is none other than Nikhil Kamath who co-created Zerodha with his brother Nithin Kamath. A dropout – worked in a call centre – creator of Zerodha. A billionaire in the true sense. Zerodha is a cash surplus debt-free startup that took no funding from any investor. What an amazing product and creation. We are sub-brokers of Zerodha and we know the quality and transparency better than anyone else. Nikhil is probably amongst the best entrepreneurs in India who build Zerodha from scratch.
#4 The not so costly teacher Raveendran Byjus
The humble teacher is not an exaggeration. Byju’s Raveendran is another entrepreneur who gave hopes and aspirations to all those students who cannot access coaching. There are two versions of Byjus one is free and the other is paid. A person who is inquisitive can easily search through the portal and find the relevant free content along with pdfs.
#5 King in the North Shri Ramdev Baba and Acharya Balakrishna
Swamiji gave a befitting reply to the MNCs selling their products in India. Firstly, swamiji focused on ayurveda and yoga as means of lifestyle. Now Swamiji is looking forward to pay heed to the calling of nation which is biscuits, surf, noodles, jeans etc. He tried to convince people to opt for a healthy lifestyle but people wanted something else. Therefore swamiji along with acharyaji filled the market with what people wanted. He showed the spirit, grit and determination of true entrepreneurship.
