In 2006 quoted Manmohan Singh who quoted Victor Hugo in his 1991 parliament address “No power on Earth can stop an idea whose time has come”. The emergence of India as a major global power is an idea whose time has come. Over the past 15 years, India has been the second fastest-growing country in the world—after China —averaging above 6 percent growth per year. This over 1.2 billion strong market opens up many new opportunities for the U.S entrepreneur.
Dear Friends of TiE Minnesota,
For our upcoming event on April 20th, we are pleased to announce TiE Minnesota’s first ever “My Story Session” featuring Amit Gupta, chairman of TAB India and CEO of Amsum & Ash. Amit was recently featured in the Star Tribune article “Turning the stones of India into loads of cold, hard cash.” The article describes the story of how as an enterprising lad of just 22, Gupta started with an idea to create a trading company to sell products from his native India in the United States and how Nine years later, that idea has turned into a Technicolor reality -- a $45 million business commanded from a small office in Fridley. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn first hand how this charismatic entrepreneur, through incessant determination and the right strategy, has made the seemingly impossible possible!
Excerpt form Star Tribune Article (February 22nd, 2006):
Gupta, now 32, is co-founder and chairman of TAB India, a Jaipur-based quarrier, processor and marketer of granite, marble, slate and sandstone sold around the world.
It's a sprawling operation that owns 14 quarries, leases 20 others and has built seven stone-processing plants in India, including a $10 million granite plant that turns out a million square feet of product a month. TAB sales reached $35 million in 2005.
Of more import to local small-business fans, he's also the CEO of Fridley-based Amsum & Ash Inc., TAB's U.S. sales and service arm. It's a rapidly growing operation with 2005 revenue of $8 million and 100,000 square feet of warehouse space in four U.S. cities, half of it in a sprawling headquarters facility in Fridley.
Oh yes, there's also a new Brazilian trading company patterned after the U.S. business that contributed a couple million bucks to 2005 revenue. (For the full article please CLICK HERE.)
