UnPluGGd 2nd Edition was a phenomenal success and we witnessed some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs at the event. Manish Sharma, Printo founder has an interesting entrepreneurial journey.
He is a software engineer by profession – was 12th employee of Rediff, started one of the earliest Internet services firm in India (in 1995) called DBSIS.
Post DBSIS acquisition, Manish moved to US, worked on AI based learning and extraction engine startup (Late Prof. Rajeev Motwani was his advisor) which didn’t do so well. Later on, he went to Oxford University for MBA, worked for a company and moved to India to start a retail business, about which he had no idea of.
Serial entrepreneur or Serial undertaker?
Well, Manish shared very candid perspective and his was one of the most inspiring talk (101 on entrepreneurship) at the event. Highly recommended for early stage entrepreneurs, especially those who are running after VCs/Angels.
Watch his energetic talk.
Aside, Printo was recently in news for Lifeblob acquisition.
