Small Talk with Mr. Mahesh Murthy - Pin Drop Storm!

CEans,

He has been there, done that. He got into engineering college but dropped out after 3 semesters. He sold vacuum cleaners door to door and later went on to shape & design Yahoo’s first GUI, shape Amazon.com’s strategy & launch Paul Allan’s net properties. He currently heads one of the top 10 coolest companies in India and and funds exciting startups through his passionfund! He is probably the only venture capitalist who advises startups against raising venture capital.

[​IMG]He is Mr. Mahesh Murthy!

We are extremely proud and happy to have Mr. Mahesh Murthy, the Founder & CEO of Pinstorm for Small Talk with us. In Mahesh’s own words “it is one of the most exciting & exhausting interviews I have ever done”.

Check it out…

The Small Talk till now I liked most. Well done Mr. Murthy. People like you are real inspirations for me. A true story behind a successful man. I liked it lot. The best part I liked about him is he did only what he liked without caring for what others are saying about him. Really I feel that there is no work small or big, the thing matters is your will to achieve what you want in actual in your life.

I completely agree with his words "Follow your heart. When the heart doesn’t know, follow your gut. Don’t, in any circumstances, follow your mind."

Indian Education system really needs a big change for making our country better in future.

My words are ending in his praise.😔
Again well done Mr Murthy. 😀

I absolutely know what he means here -

“If you’re good at Maths and Science, then you’ll be an engineer or a doctor. If you’re good at Maths but not Science, then you’ll do Commerce. If you’re good at Science but not Maths, then you’ll do a B Sc. If you’re not good at Science and not good at Maths, then we have to find you someone rich to marry.”
Many Indians can relate to this. What do you have to say, engineers from India? 😀

I really enjoyed this talk...
It's a practical life situation for everyone.
As he said Knowledge (Here bookish) without application or rather thinking is useless.
