The old saying Behind every successful man is a woman rings true for Sudha Murty. She is the woman who has played a key role in the success of Indian IT giant Infosys.
Infosys, the second-largest IT business in the nation, has been operating for 40 years. Narayana Murthy, the company’s founder, borrowed Rs 10,000 from his wife Sudha Murthy to launch Infosys in 1981.
Sudha Murthy also became Infosys’ first investor in this way. She believes she is the world’s best investor after seeing Infosys’ success. She considers herself to be India’s best investor. Or perhaps throughout the entire planet.
Considering that her husband Narayan Murthy founded a $17.53 billion firm with the 10,000 rupees she loaned him. “I am feeling really delighted and good,” Sudha Murthy says she I had no idea that ten thousand rupees would one day be worth billions of dollars.
Sudha Murthy has also provided youth with startup advise. According to her, “this generation needs to be patient as nothing will occur in a single day. Even Rome wasn’t constructed overnight. The creation of a corporation requires a lot of effort. These are all crucial factors. The most crucial factor, however, is that patience is required.”
She declared, “After seven to eight years, we fared well. Not that we gave up after a year, though. Be patient, then. If you put forth the effort, success will come. Money runs away from you if you after it.Working hard will lead to success.”
With a meagre investment of Rs 10,000, seven engineers from Patni Computer Systems—NR Narayana Murthy, Nandan Nilekani, NS Raghavan, S. Gopalakrishnan, SD Shibulal, K. Dinesh, and Ashok Arora—joined forces to found Infosys Consultants in 1981.
Infosys Consultants, an IT business, was founded in Pune, and its initial office was a room in Narayan Murthy’s home.
One of the top IT businesses in the world now is Infosys, which has created the new income tax filing website.
