Ronnie will share his experiences as a first time entrepreneur to mentor the ambitious entrepreneurs.
Commenting on his association with the show, Ronnie Screwvala said, “I have recently released my book ‘Dream With Your Eyes Open’ which aims to champion the cause of entrepreneurship in the country. This show is a perfect extension of the book and through this we want to inspire success, demystify failure and urge people to dream and dream big. I am glad to partner with ET NOW who are also working towards the same cause. I hope my book and this show gives people the conviction to follow their dreams and make them believe that it’s all possible and can be done.”
