"Sharat babu" -  An Entrepreneur

I was born and brought up in a slum in Madipakkam in Chennai. I have two elder sisters and two younger brothers and my mother was the sole breadwinner of the family.
It was really tough for my mother to bring up five kids on her meager salary. She sold Idlis in the mornings, worked for the mid-day meal at the school during daytime and taught at the adult education programme of the Indian government, thus doing three different jobs to bring us up and educate us.
My mother, according to me, is the most successful entrepreneur.
I did schooling in Kings Matriculation Higher Secondary School, Chennai,graduated in Chemical Engineering from BITS, Pilani and after working for 3 years in Polaris Softwares completed MBA from IIMAhmedabad.
Foodking was setup with a vision to offer employment to illiterate and semi-illiterate people and bring up their living standard.
Foodking has started its operations on May 16th, 2006 by supplying snacks to corporate sectors, banks and software firms.
It undertakes Event Catering, Industrial Catering and Institutional Catering and also has Retail Outlets.
Today, at 29, he is CEO of Foodking Catering Services which is providing services at BITS, Pilani, IIM, Ahmedabad, BITS, Goa, BITS Hyderabad and SRM, Chennai among others and has a turnover of Rs. 7 crore.
