We can’t even sit in the same room anymore with our friends and family if we are not aligned on our political ideologies.

“I look forward to these relatable and inspiring stories every week. The rigor, relentless pursuit, and the unique combination of wisdom and hustle that entrepreneurs thrive on is captured really well by the team at The INDUStry Show and one-line life lessons. These lessons are simple yet profound, and I have found some of them to be life-changing. I love the fact that there are several hundred of them available on their website and other social channels to inspire, motivate, and most importantly, drive meaningful action as we go through the ups and downs of our entrepreneurial journeys. The work the team at The INDUStry Show is doing resonates with our mission to keep purpose at the heart of everything we do and help entrepreneurs”, said Ash Patel of Commercial Bank of California, a longtime supporter of The INDUStry Show.

“We remain favorably biased toward representing AAPI, BIPOC, immigrants, and women entrepreneurs and executives. Last year, in Season 6 (2021), we shared 50 entrepreneurial journeys, from Baltimore to Bangalore. The entrepreneurial journey is fun, albeit challenging and even lonely. Even more so for immigrants, minorities, and women. Despite these challenges, 44% of US-based unicorn founders today are first-generation immigrants born outside the US. This is a testament to the grit and the relentless spirit of entrepreneurship. We are proud of the accomplishments of our network and our ability to come together when a need or stellar opportunity arises. Thanks to the support of visionary entrepreneurs and philanthropists such as Ash Patel of Commercial Bank of California and Manu Shah of MS International, I believe we have reached an inflection point as a community and greater things are on the horizon”, concluded Dr. Bajaj.
