Top 15 most influential and successful Entrepreneurs in India

Entrepreneurs are the key to any country’s economic development. The fact cannot be argued that they are the flag-bearers of a globalization that is associated with industry as well as commerce which is certainly bringing an enormous change in numerous aspects of living. These business owners play a highly effective and a vital part in reducing the issue of joblessness in the country that paves the way towards financial growth and success. What the entrepreneurs do is channelize the funds that are kept idle and thereby building capital to produce wealth which in turn makes the nation economically stronger and definitely a self-dependant nation. Needless to say that we are all sufferers of price-rise, and sometimes the middle-class people really struggle with sudden inflation.

With his father’s support, he established a bigger steel factory “Ispat Indo” and that fetched him grand results. His biggest and perhaps the most significant strength was taking over those businesses which were running into huge losses and converting them into highly profitable machines. In the year 1989, he acquired a firm in Trinidad and Tobago that was suffering heavy losses and turned it into profit-making one. Under him, the steel firm Ispat Indo transferred into Ispat International which was later on joined hands with International Steel Group. This huge steel conglomerate has a net worth of approximately 22 million USD and it runs across 14 countries. Along with this, Mittal’s business sector have varied in shipping and delivery, coal, electrical power, oil companies. But it has not been all that smooth sailing for him, his steel factory was accused of non-friendly to the environment and unhealthy for labour work for which he had to shut his business down temporarily but he overcame all odds to become a legendary entrepreneur.  He was awarded the ”100 most influential people of the world” by Times .

He never compromised for quality even though he was offering the material very cheaply.That was the journey of “Nirma’’ which was named by Mr. Patel in the name of his daughter “Nirupama”. Mr. Patel was never afraid of hard work, he started selling the detergent door-to-door at then a very cheap price at Rs.3/kg. Although the cheapest price of detergent at that time was Rs.13/kg. Slowly“ Nirma’’ brought a new revolution in the market and became the best detergent brand at that time. The formula that was used by Nirma at that time was free from any hard chemicals like phosphate and soon became a standard which all other detergent companies had to follow. Not only in the detergent segment but also in soaps ,Nirma captured a huge market. Because of Mr. Patel’s hardworking and non-compromising efforts he received many recognitions like the “Udyog Ratna”and‘Outstanding Industrialist of the Eighties”.
