An excellent guide for entrepreneurs who want to set up businesses in India, especially non-resident Indians who wish to return to the country.
In this insightful book, authors explore the complexities of how entrepreneurs perceive opportunities in this 'imperfect ' marketplace, why they take risks, what skills and competencies enable them to survive, the various problems they are confronted with, and what drives them to take up new challenges.
Divided into four parts, the book first introduces the reader to the Indian industrial environment and highlights its attractiveness in spite of its imperfections. Parts two and three present case studies of 'returned' non-resident Indian, emphasizing the problems they had to confront as also the means they adopted to prevail and thrive. The concluding part summarizes the experiences of all the players in the Indian market place - be they Indians, foreign companies or returned non-resident Indians - and draws useful lessons for new entrepreneurs.
Written in an extremely readable and narrative style, this absorbing book will be of immense interest to both existing and aspiring entrepreneurs.
