Introduction: Hafeez Kudroli is 24 years old impact investor and entrepreneur from India, he runs over 15+ companies in almost every sector. We are glad to interview him and these are the questions we asked:
Where did the Kudroli World start from?
My father “Mr. Shafi Kudroli” started the business in the year 1990 and later from 2004 we formed a construction firm called Kudroli Builders & Infrastructures but today Kudroli World is a group of companies that work in the following areas like building materials, commercial real estate, broadcast media, apparels hospitality, IT, ITES, entertainment, events, investment services etc.
What is your background and when and how did you get involved in the family business?
I am an engineer by qualification, and immediately after completing my engineering, I joined my family business. I am lucky that my first project was to transform Bangalore’s famous Chruch Street, fortunately, I managed to complete the project in less than nine months and both the locals and authorities highly appreciated the work.
Hafeez, you are 24 years old, and you run so many businesses. How you do it, what’s your formula?
I have no formula – I believe it is essential to start and run a business with good intentions; making money should not be the only focus. The foundation of business should be built with a plan to invest and work for social benefit.
Finally, what advice do you have for young people?
There is immense potential in everyone, work hard, be honest and behave humanely.
