The Gaja Capital Business
Book Prize is back for its 6th edition!

The Gaja Capital Business Book Prize was instituted in 2019, to encourage Indian entrepreneurs, writers, and journalists to tell their stories to the world.

India is at the cusp of a once in a generation opportunity to leverage its demographic dividend, strengths in chemistry and health sciences, technology, and a high growth consumer market to create tremendous business value and innovation for the world. Over the next few decades, Indian entrepreneurship and business models should be written about, critiqued, celebrated, and improved to create a vibrant business ecosystem, that is built to last. We hope that these awards encourage young entrepreneurs to read and learn from the experience of others and for writers, journalists and entrepreneurs to share their stories and create a body of knowledge for others to leverage and build upon.

The Gaja Capital Business Book Prize 2023 was jointly awarded to ‘Against All Odds: The IT Story of India’ and ‘Winning Middle India: The Story of India’s New-Age Entrepreneurs’ by esteemed authors Kris Gopalakrishnan, N. Dayasindhu, Krishnan Narayanan, and T.N. Hari and Bala Srinivasa. While “Against All Odds” chronicles the trials, triumphs, and history of the Indian IT sector, “Winning Middle India” provides a detailed account of the new generation of startup founders who are catalysts for the transformation of the next 40-50 Crore Indian consumers.
