"The more I fail, the more I want to succeed. The harder I fall, the higher I rebound"
Dr. Shri Thanedar

There are many ways to describe Shri an immigrant, a philanthropist, an entrepreneur, a successful business man or a connoisseur of art and music. Shri's life is a living inspirational story about starting from almost nothing and achieving the zenith of success while coping with adversities.

Shri's story begins half way around the world; he grew up in poverty in India. He came to the United States, completed his PhD and bought his first company for $75,000.
