Startup stories, unpacked.

Karteek expertly explores the origin stories of some of the most successful and interesting startups in India. Conversations are candid and one walks away with a deeper understanding of the startup, the founder and the decisions that informed their journey. Excellent production quality, too. Recommended to budding founders.
