The Value of Putting on a Suit

Amit Chatterjee, Hara, Inc.

Amit Chatterjee, CEO and founder of Hara, discusses the learning benefits an entrepreneur gains from “putting on a suit” inside a larger company. Compared to launching his own entrepreneurial ventures, Chatterjee found working within an established enterprise to be a way to gain experience in strategy and critical thinking – without having to worry about the bottom line. Ironically, it was also through contacts made while working in a Fortune 5000 that Chatterjee became inspired to launch his next startup.
