Foreword by N R Narayana Murthy

In business, you might be able to gain some kind of advantages using shortcuts. These advantages are short-lived. If you want to gain long-term advantage, you need the right foundation of values and principles at play.

“On Entrepreneurship and Impact” is a refreshing take on the themes of entrepreneurship and impact. Every article highlights a value, principle, mindset or an approach at the foundational level rather than providing a popular tip or a technique. The focus is on the long-term win rather than gaining a fleeting advantage.

I have been a witness from close quarters to watch Desh build multiple successful technology companies in the first phase of his career and now repeating his success via thoughtful philanthropy and innovative ecosystem building initiatives like the Sandbox at Hubli and other locations.

In this book, Desh generously shares his practical insights that will create a lasting impact on the thinking of those that are aiming to create a lasting impact.

My advice – read this book in the context of your own projects. Consider putting these insights into action on your own project or share these insights with those that can put them into action.
