There are 26 letters...but only one can forever change you. Yes, the letter M.
Meet Michigan alum Ananth Narayanan (UM '99), CEO of Myntra. He says his father's thoughtful approach to think big and small at the same time developed him as a leader.
The first time I met Eddie was at an alumni dinner that he organized for UMIAA. Eddie picked this exquisite boutique venue (considered one of the world's 50 best restaurants). And then he chose a special menu (all of us had customized printed copies). It bowled everyone over.
It's common to hear stories of funds raising funds. Like this one.' Investors commit $90 million in Lok Capital's third fund' But it's uncommon to read stories about funds returning money. Like this one. 'Lok Capital returns $65 million to investors' That requires grit. And a different sort of commitment.
