    Dear Lavanya,

    One of the best thoughts, you have brought into your table… Interviewing entrepreneurs. It is MUST at this emerging business world to identify the potential Entrepreneurs and encourage them in this kind.

    I just don’t see the interview in it. There are lot more good things.

    I wish all the very best to you.

    Hi Lavanya,

    Good idea for a site. I look forward for more reading.

    As Thanveer pointed out, I was looking for more info from the interview. You can try audio / video interview like shows. if it is time consuming, may be a more descriptive text.

    there can also be more precise questions.. like what were the mistakes they did? a scenario about the opportunities in their industry etc.,
