The Big Picture – In Conversation with Simha Sadasiva – Founder of Ushur – Part 1

In this episode of The Big Picture Series, I had a chance to Zoom with Simha Sadasiva, co-founder and CEO of Ushur, the latest Iron Pillar portfolio company. As usual, the interaction was free flowing and very personal. 

This is Part 1 of a 2 part interview where Simha talks about his journey from India to the US and eventually to Silicon Valley…transitioning from larger companies to the startup world, and taking the entrepreneurial plunge with Ushur.

Key takeaways from the fascinating interaction (along with video time stamps):

– Fun fact: Simha had never flown on an airplane until he was 23! (1:50)
– Moving to Silicon Valley (3:22)
– Poignant advice for Entrepreneurs (7:50)
– First Capital Raise for Ushur (11:26)
