For this entrepreneur tennis ball and racket came first and later came a business plan. Shriranga Sudhakara, Managing Director and Founder, Vyoma played for junior Indian team and later competed at a number of ATP Challengers. A major knee injury, however, deterred him from playing professional tennis and look for an alternate career.

Started in 2007, his ad-tech firm has now grown to become one of India's most formidable players. "Sports is a great leveler in the ever-changing world of entrepreneurship," believes the 38-year-old.
