Vijay Eswaran Entrepreneurial Experience

When he started his entrepreneurial journey, Eswaran says so many factors worked against him. Lack of connections and funds and economic crisis were among the many challenges that he faced.

He did not want to continue being employed. Lucky for him, he came across like-minded people and received a lot of support from his wife.

According to QI Group, Vijay Eswaran says his father was paramount in shaping who he is today. His father taught him to serve beyond self. He has always taught the staff at QI Group to have the soul of a small company.

It is good for people to know that it is not the company that succeeds, but the people working in a company. Individual contribution in the workplace is what is reflected in the company’s overall performance.

Eswaran describes an entrepreneur as being inquisitive, intense, and intuitive. He also says his biggest motivation is the people who his business touches. He likes interacting with his customers to know how the company is impacting on their lives.
