An exclusive interview with Ravi Venkatesan

Ravi was the Chairman of Microsoft India and Bank of Baroda. Under his leadership India became Microsoft's second largest market in the world. He is a board member of AB Volvo and the Rockefeller Foundation. In this interview, Ravi shares a fundamental message about the possibility of succeeding in emerging countries. These lessons and the resulting choices are – of course – applicable to any market.

We created a YouTube channel and posted two versions of the interview:

  • the full version in which the first 5 minutes contain important business strategies for success in emerging countries; the rest of the video is dedicated to anti-corruption themes and beyond governance
  • a shorter version focusing on compliance issues
