A consummate businesswoman who managed risk or a plucky entrepreneur who took chances to try new things? Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw is both, by turns.From an industrial enzymes and commodities small molecule company to a research-driven biotech enterprise that aspires to be global, Biocon has been Mazumdar-Shaw's tinkering ground for over thirty-seven years. Unlike biotech companies of the West which started with science, Biocon started with technology, adding science as a backend which neatly illustrates why it has been tough to build a de novo ecosystem for biotech in India. A fearless business leader who speaks her mind, this evocative biography gives us an in-depth understanding of Kiran's tech start-up journey, her struggles and her victories.
