Sunil Bharti Mittal’s success in entrepreneurship has pushed him into the spotlight, making him a sought after personality at global business forums such as the World Economic Forum and the Global Partnership Summit. Sunil will therefore often be seen in post-forum videos sharing his experiences and insights as an entrepreneur.
Often, the experiences he shares during these discussions are inspirational. For instance, in one of the videos, he reveals that he started off his entrepreneurship journey in 1976 with only $1,500 borrowed from his father, which he used to start a small business that manufactured bicycle parts.
Some of the vital lessons he shares are that entrepreneurs need to be passionate about what they do, and that self-belief is important. For instance, self-belief enabled him to bid for a mobile license against more established companies in 1992 while his company was still small.
