Be a Capitalist with a Simple Heart

Earlier this year the Indian School of Business (ISB) conferred the Honorary Distinguished Fellowship on N R Narayana Murthy, Founder, Infosys and Catamaran Ventures, making him the first recipient of the Fellowship. The ISB Honorary Distinguished Fellowship is designed to honour personalities of national and international eminence, who have contributed to society through their thought leadership and success, are respected by the industry and the academia alike, and have inspired generations of people to achieve excellence in their respective fields of activity.

Professor Rajendra Srivastava, Dean ISB and Novartis Professor of Marketing Strategy and Innovation engaged Mr Murthy in a freewheeling conversation covering the guiding principles at Infosys, the latter’s personal values, his transformation from a confused leftist to a determined compassionate capitalist, Infosys’ listing on NASDAQ, his learnings from the 2008 recession and more. Excerpts from the conversation:
