Kanwal Rekhi. Gelatin silver print -- 16" x 20"

One of the founders of The IndUS Entrepreneurs (TiE) and CEO of the first Indian-led company publicly traded on Nasdaq gives suggestions to young entrepreneurs with new technology ideas during a guru-chela session at the TiE office in Santa Clara. Fortune described Rekhi as the Godfather of Silicon Valley¹s Indian business community, with a reputation as a business plan genius.

"We became role models and mentors for this next generation of Indian entrepreneurs because we felt we had to fight our way to the top, and we can make it a little bit easier for our people." -- Kanwal Rekhi, Upside Today, 11/28/2000
