One of the most successful entrepreneurs in India, Ronnie Screwvala shares the tricks of the trade with Shoma Chaudhury at Algebra The Arts and Ideas Club on 20 May 2018.
While talking about what drives entrepreneurship, Ronnie Screwvala says that entrepreneurs should “act on their own vision because at the end of the day that’s what is going to get them going every single day when they face challenges”.
While talking about the initial struggles his team faced, he says, “everyone told us we didn’t have any business to be in the business, but our entrepreneurial approach was that we don’t have a choice and that’s what kept us going forward”.
Credited with pioneering cable TV in India, Ronnie Srewvala founded UTV in 1990, which he later divested to Walt Disney. He has also co-founded the NGO “The Swades Foundation”, “UpGrad”, an online higher education company and “U Sports”, a sports company which focusses on Football, Kabaddi and E-sports. He has also authored a book titled, “Dream with Your Eyes Open”.

Algebra takes the idea of a club – a universe of the likeminded – and expands it to new paradigms. The key idea behind Algebra is to bring together a fellowship of people who believe great cities are built not just on infrastructure but a life of the mind; who understand robust and liberal societies need the oxygen of great conversation and nuanced thinking. At a time when we are increasingly surrounded by rage and noise, Algebra is that unique live and continuous space where people could go for a genuine exchange of ideas and exposure to issues; where new seeds could be sparked, fresh perspectives formed, and intelligent connections made.
Algebra – the Arts and Ideas Club is designed to host over 60 conversations over the year with topline thinkers and practitioners from almost every discipline that impacts human affairs: politics, economy, environment, spirituality, cinema, medicine, science, technology, music, media, literature, the arts, sports, people’s movements, et al. In a line, Algebra is a space where one can meet an exciting, cutting-edge spectrum of people shaping the world in different ways. Where one can test one’s ideas, challenge one’s perspectives, and build friendships. A sort of fellowship of the curious and engaged.
Membership to Algebra is by invitation or referral. If you know an Algebra member, ask them to put you in touch with us. For more, click HERE:
