Narayana Murthy created Infosys in 1981 with a $250 loan from his wife. Its annual revenue touched $100 million in 1999, $1 billion in 2004 and $10 billion in 2017. The technology giant now employs 200,000 people worldwide. In this one-to-one discussion, we reveal key insights on how he scaled Infosys from a start-up in Bangalore, to a globally respected multinational corporation.
The Asia Leaders Series asks him about his approach to business, his values, and the philosophy that define his vision. Crucially, they also ask Murthy to reveal his greatest struggles, what went wrong and what he regrets. We ask him about going public, handling investors, and about recent events regarding the leadership and corporate governance of Infosys.
