Presented By: Naveen Jain

“How many in this room want to create a billion dollar company? Raise your hand. I’ll tell you one simple solution. Go out and solve a $10 billion problem. That’s all you have to do!” And that is what Naveen Jain did to become a billionaire, with his son Ankur and daughter Priyanka following in his footsteps. In this talk, the entrepreneurial Jain family explains how thinking “in a different box” and in abstract terms leads to coming up with very disruptive solutions. This First Family of Tech is making waves in education, space exploration, technology and business, starting with just one person, an entrepreneurial mindset and a problem defined in a new and different light.
