“Beta Project25 is an attempt to make 25 world-class businesses form India over the next 25 years. We are doing this to mark the birth anniversary of our visionary leader Rajan Pillai. He was India’s pioneering entrepreneur, from a small village in Kollam who rose to become the largest food company in southeast Asia with the vision of making Britannia one of the largest food companies in the world before his life was cut short, untimely at the young age of 48 at the peak of his career and taught Indians the art of making dreams work. We are indebted to take his vision forward and that is why we want to make 25 global brands to celebrate his life,” said Mahesh Nair, Director, NetObjex Inc., the parent company of Servntire Global. “We have also reached out to senior level Indian executives in International Brands like FedEx, Cock, IBM and Nabisco to be in the advisory board,” said Mahesh.
