“It is not so hard to relate to V.G Siddhartha. A businessperson has to handle multiple kinds of pressures from multiple stakeholders,” said Manish Kumar, co-founder, GREX, a fund-raising platform for start-ups.
“Any company can immediately spiral out of regular operations if there is no quick confluence of plans and resolutions between multiple stakeholders and things may never return to normal once they go out of hand. Apart from investors, customers, employees, and partners, the state is one big, multi-party stakeholder as well. There are many departments or wings of the government and they do not talk to each other and this complicates matters,” added Mr. Kumar.
