Look out for the Smartest Indian Entrepreneur

Yes, it's Zoho's Sridhar Vembu. I have been a great fan of Zoho and it's online suite of applications. So much so that I flaunt the Zoho logo on my website on my own!

Now read the Forbes article by Sramana Mitra and

Sridhar Vembu's interview with Mitra

Some excerpts:
Adventnet is a 100%, bootstrapped, $40-million-a-year revenue business that sends $1 million to the bank every month in profits.

Doing what? you might wonder. Selling network management tools, to be precise. But with a unique twist. Vembu employs 600 people in Chennai, India, and a mere eight in Silicon Valley. Imagine what that does to his cost structure!

Zoho's CRM costs $10 per user while Salesforce costs $65!

Way to go, Zoho!
