We’re launching FactorDaily Outliers — a podcast about the ones who chose to take the road not taken. It’s about the crazy and the curious. Those that dared to stand out, and stand alone. It’s about their journey through hope and disillusionment, failures and pitfalls, joys and successes, pain and bliss. It’s a candid exploration of experiences and ideas that have driven some of the shining stars, told as is.
We launch the Outliers series with Manish Sharma, a well-known name in the Indian startup world. For those who don’t know him, he’s the man who built Printo, the printing retail chain which is pretty popular in Bengaluru and some other cities.
We chose Sharma because he is clearly an outlier among entrepreneurs.
