Year Awarded: 

2014

From Jit Saxena: "When I graduated from IIT Mumbai, I was fascinated by what I was reading in magazines about America. We were a typical close knit-family, with middle-class values, and I was the youngest of all brothers. I made my way to the USA, acquired a MSEE from Michigan State University and an MBA from Boston University. I didn’t start out as an entrepreneur. I had a job with Data General, and one day, the CEO rejected my idea of building an independent software company.
I decided I simply wanted to pursue that idea, as I was convinced Software will become the biggest industry in the world. So I told my wife that I was starting a company, and that’s how my entrepreneurship journey began."
