Back To Bharat with Naga

Learning Forward with Naga Season 13 Episode 1. Nagaraja (Naga) Prakasam is a versatile and passionate leader with around three decades of global experience. He enjoys growing startups nationwide and being a lead angel investor; he has led 16 deals, invested in 25 startups, served 12 boards, and seen six exits and two write-offs. He also authorises BackToBharat – In Search of a Sustainable Future. He spearheaded Impact thinking in the Indian Angel Network and co-founded IAN Impact. His mantra is "Startups should focus on India's strength – People, Problems, Tech (PPT)." Back to Bharat: In Search of a Sustainable Future is a book that addresses the present economic dilemma for Indian entrepreneurs and consumers, looking at the past and current situation of India and the developed world to find a way forward. Naga's mantra is 'People, Problems and Tech'. My Good School's motto is 'Reading, Reflections and Relations'. We observe a lot of similarities as foundations in the visions we serve. Starting with the IAN Impact, one of his first investments as an angel investor, he has taken up many exciting projects. Notable mentions of portfolios are the Saahas Zero Waste, Carbon Masters and BOSON Whitewater, these startups and how he decides to invest in them. To help startups and nurture leaders, to solve the simple problems that India faces and to provide a unified, impactful solution to an issue for many. SaaS companies start quickly and move to the USA, which is well established now, but startups that solve big problems in India find it hard to generate money out of the country, so how can they counter that?  Back to Bharat is an inspiring reminder that change is possible - and this is a moment to be a part of the change, for it will take all of us with it.
