In a country where almost 70% of population lived in villages and was dependent on agriculture, the foray of information and technology served as a boon for the educated middle class youth who suffered from unemployment. Post Globalization, India also saw a boom in the IT and Software sector like the rest of the world. Many Indian entrepreneurs like Ratan Tata, Azim Premji and N.R. Narayana Murthy saw the opportunity and delved into the sector. Now their companies TCS, Wipro and Infosys are identified among the top global companies. The advancement in the IT sector also coerced the traditional sectors as banking and insurance to modernize and adopt more tech-savvy techniques. As the plethora of avenues in the IT and Software industry is numerous, the youths of India are empowered to start their own business and the internet serves as the perfect launch pad for their venture. The story of Flipkart founders, Bansal brothers, bears testament to this fact. Here we present the biographies on some of the famous Indian IT and Software entrepreneurs. The biographies serve as an insight to the lives and timelines of these business giants.
