Vineet’s father was in the service, living in the forest at the age of 21, he came to the reality of poverty, what rich means, and steps to get there.
“To be rich, you must be associated with a business.”
At the age of 26, he started a fund with the idea of taking capital that will influence young entrepreneurs to work through their business with poor people. At the same time, he started a company called Intellecap to get to young people fascinated by the challenge of solving a social problem and helping others become rich.
“Rich means reaching your basic needs.”
