When YourStory.in asked me to write a monthly piece on design and entrepreneurship, I thought it was a perfect chance for me to reflect on my own entrepreneurial journey as a design entrepreneur. A great opportunity to walk down memory lane, bask in the glory of the unique eureka moments, assimilate the learnings from the mistakes and sit back and enjoy the rushes of every moment, good or bad, in the years gone by.
