He left his well-paid job to be an entrepreneur, he moved out from his penthouse to finance his business, he left almost everything to be his own instructor. Then he failed and was left with almost nothing but he didn’t give up, he stayed focused. He never believed in making the sky his limit because he desired to go beyond the sky and aimed to nurture startups and that’s what made him the founder of Innovify. Here is Maulik’s slice of life in the form of interview at The Chrissy B Show.
