The journey of a successful entrepreneur can be seen with Rajeev Chandrasekhar
Rajeev Chandrasekhar, the Bengaluru-based third time Member of Parliament, was sworn in as the Minister of State in the Cabinet reshuffle on July 7.
He is the Minister of State in the Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology and Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship.
After he completed his engineering graduate from Manipal Institute of Technology, Chandrasekhar started his journey at Intel in Silicon Valley. He came back to India in 1991 and founded BPL Mobile in 1994, where he built the country’s largest Cellular Network. He exited the company in 2005.
He was the independent member of Rajya Sabha from April 2006 to 2018, when he was re-elected to Rajya Sabha from Karnataka as a member of BJP. Given that he was an independent MP, he needed to be smart and quick given the limited time posed to him in the parliament, says his former colleagues.
Chandrasekhar then later founded private equity firm Jupiter Capital in 2006, where he was Chairman till 2014. He also had a stake in Arnab Goswami’s Republic TV. However, in 2019, Chandrasekhar diluted its shareholding making Goswami a majority shareholder.
In 2015, when the Supreme Court struck down Section 66A, which punished people for posting offensive messages online, Chandrasekhar and his team is said to have played an active role in supporting it.
Chandrasekhar is an apt person to help Prime Minister’s Narendra Modi’s vision of digital India.
