Emerging economies: outside-in and inside-out
In 1981, when we founded Infosys, one of the first roles I had taken up was to manage sales in the North American region. I would go out on several meetings with prospective clients to talk to them about Infosys and what we had to offer. As hard as it is to believe, most of my presentations in those days would start with a map of the world on which I used to point out where exactly India was! Back then, India was not known to many as it had not made its mark on the global business landscape yet. A lot has changed over the past three decades. Today, India, similar to several other emerging economies is at the forefront of global economic growth.
