A user talking about the difference in strategy of new and old entrepreneurs commented, “~New age decide on product/service and simultaneously put a huge thought on scaling up (End goal) without having practical on the field. Whereas you see old age has decided on the product and implemented with small scale and gradually gone up.” He added, “We have many success stories like Haldiram who built an empire with great thought and strong efforts on the field.”

Another user wrote, “India is not just about startups & valuations & shark tanks only. The largest contributors to the GDP & economy in India are family-led businesses – big & small, & for centuries. Haldirams is one such great example.”

“Haldirams is a proud brand from India that signifies India’s culture, tradition, strength, competence, and business acumen. I don’t think any other competitor has been able to match some of its key product offerings and look at the scale of the business all over the world that Haldirams has grown to,” wrote another user.
