Ninja Entrepreneur, Dhiraj Arora, Tells Us About His Adventure
Submitted by Shoshana on Thu, 11/14/2013 - 12:51
What inspired you to start your business?
The lack of awareness for great tasting and nutritious vegan Indian food in America and also the fact that organic Indian grocery products didn’t even exist. So, I had a mission: launch the first ever organic Indian grocery product for the vegan audience in America. I pulled it off after about 9 years with the 2005 launch of my Organic Indian Spice Blend Line.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
No question, NYC Entrepreneur of the Year in 2007. A bit impressive for a city of 8 million, no?
How does your business serve your local community?
I make sure my beloved borough of Brooklyn is always loaded with my goods at the best prices possible. I work the markets myself so I can say hi to the families who got me off the ground 12 plus years ago. We spread love; it’s the Brooklyn way.
How do you want to make a difference?
By doing what I have and continue to do: going the extra miles and taking the risk to bring the most superior products to consumers worldwide.
What tech gadget can you not live without and how does it make a difference in your life?
Blackberry. Allows me to run my inbox. I don’t do social media or use a laptop.
Where do you envision yourself in 10 years?
Quite the same: globe trotting, running my businesses, celebrating life with friends and family!
