T Venkatesh, the founder of the Abhimaani Group, is a self-made entrepreneur who believes in the human touch. He began small as a humble civil contractor. However, what he enjoyed most was reading. This led him to start a local weekly and daily as a voice of hapless local Kannadigas whose cries for attention were ignored by traditional media houses. And then, entrepreneurship took over and he is now heading a media empire, which not only publishes two extremely popular mass newspapers, but also has a full-fledged printing press that caters to both domestic and international markets. The winner of many prestigious awards for his pioneering spirit and social work, Venkatesh draws his inspirations from the people who work in his organisation. A great visionary, Venkatesh constantly updates his printing and publishing empire by visiting different countries to get more insight into the latest trends around the world.
