Asia's 25 Best Young Entrepreneurs

Today I have sent a nomination for the 25 Best Asian Young Entrepreneur in Business Week Magazene in the name of my friend Dipinder Sekhon. Following is the short write-up I have posted in the Entry Form against the query "Why do you recommend this person?"

Dipinder Sekhon and his co-promoters consisting of six other graduating students of the 2002 Computer Science batch from IIT Delhi became some kind of pioneers in Indian Entrepreneurship movement when they decided to initiate a Technology Start-up Company in incubation mode at IIT Delhi. They all had alternate high initial salary job offers or scholarship options for post graduate studies in USA, but decided to try their hand in entrepreneurship at the Institute with the support of their faculty supervisors of their project thesises and the Industry Interface unit FITT which encouraged them with initial seed funding and fellowship grants for six months. After four years, KRITIKAL Soultions, which moved out of the Institute last year to their own corporate office, have grown into a $2m 45 men Company having their own niche Technology Products and even started a subsidiary Company themselves. These talented entrepreneurs, I believe, are truely the representatives of a new generation of young Indians.
