YourStory specials for you

Interview with Phandindra Sama, CEO,

Phani broke into a less explored space in India. Bus travel is ubiquitous but no one imagined that this fragmented market will present a huge opportunity for technology. Phani, with the help of mentors, has established a viable and sustainable technology company that provides bus ticket services to customers and provides technology infrastructure and sales outreach online for bus operators. His success is an inspiration to entrepreneurs to explore opportunities that lie abound in this country of a billion plus people.

Sharad Sharma’s views on entrepreneurship

Sharad Sharma is the NASSCOM Product Chair. We had brought a four-part interview with him on his career, entrepreneurship, product software scenario, and the ecosystem roles he plays. He has provided exclusive views on how to start up. We will bring it to you on the day of the conclave.
