Stay Hungry Stay Foolish is a book having the stories of 25 MBA graduates from IIM-Ahmedabad, who struck it out on their own to become renowned entrepreneurs. The thing which connects all these 25 people is the feeling to do something new on their own and be their own bosses. Rashmi Bansal, herself an IIM- Ahmedabad alumnus narrates the stories in a very lucid and conversational style with little bit of business jargon.
Each and every story is different from the rest but in essence they are all the same. The initial years are always tough. If we want to succeed as entrepreneurs we have to be prepared to swim against the current and yet maintain a cool head. To be good entrepreneurs we have to dare to dream the forbidden and achieve the impossible. Every entrepreneur listed in the book has some invaluable advice for the youngsters.
Most of the stories are about how some enterprising IIM-A graduates have started million dollar companies but some who are listed are actually entrepreneurs with a difference as their work is helping the people immensely.
Some of the most important stories featured in the book include those of Sanjiv Bikhchandani, the founder of India’s most famous job portal, naukri.com and that of Deep Kalra who founded makemytrip.com.
The book is a must read not only for all B-School students but also for youngsters who want to do something new on their own, because the stories are very inspiring for the younger generation. I am sure the readers will be glued to it till the end. There is not a single story which can make you feel bored.
