Vikram’s journey as an entrepreneur has been tumultuous. He started as a grassroots worker sitting in the dirt with poor women in front of their village huts. He created a commercial approach to microfinance that scaled in a way that the world has never seen. Venture capitalists, however, slowly and subtly changed the culture of his company. As a result, there was a fierce political backlash, which created an implosion.


Vikram’s powerful story has valuable lessons for every entrepreneur out to change the world for the better.


From humble beginnings to a self-made multimillionaire, this industry leader, best-selling author, and groundbreaking entrepreneur has evolved into a highly sought-after business and motivational speaker. With over thirty years of proven, hands-on business experience, Vikram has spoken on all kinds of platforms, from the plenary stage at Davos to the main stage at the Clinton Global Summit.


As Founder of Bharat Financial Inclusion, Vikram laid the foundation to take the company from a mere concept to a financial powerhouse that has disbursed more than $12 billion in micro-loans to over 8 million women—and which has become a model for social business worldwide.
