Biocon’s Executive Chairperson Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw has been named EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year 2020, becoming the third Indian to win the title. Uday Kotak of Kotak Mahindra Bank and Narayana Murthy of Infosys are the other title winners from India.
Shaw was picked from among 46 award winners from 41 countries and territories vying for the global title.
“At its core, entrepreneurship is about solving problems. The greatest opportunities often arise at the toughest times, and that’s been my experience throughout my entrepreneurial journey. My business focus is global health care and the provision of universal access to life-saving medicine; however, my responsibility as an entrepreneur is greater than simply delivering value to shareholders,” said Shaw on winning the award.
