I always believed in following my passion for healthcare entrepreneurship and learning from success.
What was the rationale behind your career move towards being one of the Med-tech influential leader? My stint with healthcare began when I joined BITS Pilani in 1984 for a Bachelor’s Degree in Pharmacy with a specialization in Bio-Medical Engineering. After my graduation in 1988, I joined the medical instruments distribution company IMI and became a partner in that company in 1990. Over the years, through my position as South Asia Head of a US-based MNC Ciba Corning, I saw the medical device industry in India being dominated by large multinational companies. They had a monopoly in terms of pricing, positioning, and product line. That made me feel that now India needed an indigenous health technology company, which was “local by heart but global in its vision”. And then I decided to provide healthcare solutions at affordable costs to a large section of the Indian society, and started Trivitron Healthcare in 1997. I always believed in following my passion for healthcare entrepreneurship and learning from failure as It is difficult to learn from success. I am convinced that if one follows their passion and perseveres against all the odds, then the money will follow.
