From Fear to Three Successful Exits with Satish Bala

This week on The Exit: Growing up, Satish Bala was told he wasn’t a good student, instead of squashing his ambition, this belief pushed him towards entrepreneurship out of fear of not getting a job. Now Satish has started and exited three businesses, the first of which happened before he finished college. With every business and every exit Satish learnt something different along the way. Find out what he learnt and how a supposed terrible student became a successful entrepreneur.
