ET Now, with its new show ‘Starting up with Ronnie Screwvala’, is all set to fuel the Indian entrepreneurial wave by providing a platform to millions of emerging entrepreneurs who will shape and lead the country’s socio-economic growth. ‘Starting with Ronnie’ will kick off on April 11, 2015, and will be telecast every Saturday at 10.30 AM.
The show comprising six episodes will revolve around mentoring entrepreneurs who are at different stages of their entrepreneurship life-cycle. As part of each episode, three entrepreneurs will get a chance to seek Screwvala’s advice on specific issues they may be facing in their business. From scaling it up to funding, from finding talent to taking on the Goliaths; all the cards will be laid out on the table. Screwvala, a first generation entrepreneur, will share his experiences as a first-time entrepreneur to mentor the entrepreneurs.
R Sridharan, Managing Editor, ET Now, said, “ET Now is a channel that provides differentiated content in the business news genre. We go beyond being a provider of information, and want to maintain our standing as the go-to channel for anyone wanting to understand more about finance and investment. As a business news channel, we have always striven to be the first to identify and define development in the financial ecosystem of the country. This show will act as a platform for entrepreneurs and will reinforce the current ‘Make in India’ philosophy of the country.”
On his association, Screwvala said, "I have recently released my book ‘Dream With Your Eyes Open’ which aims to champion the cause of entrepreneurship. This show is a perfect extension of the book and through this we want to inspire success, demystify failure and urge people to dream, and dream big. I am glad to partner with ET Now which is also working towards the same cause. I hope my book and this show gives people the conviction to follow their dreams and make them believe that it's all possible and can be done."
