“Because of the complaint from my client, I wrote down my experiences of building a business from the perspective of a young entrepreneur as a manual for other teenage entrepreneurs who are going through similar struggles as me; which eventually resulted in the release of my book - The Makings of a Teenage Entrepreneur,” said Harsha during her speech yesterday.

Raised by a single mother, Harsha, also the Founder of the online guidance platform -, started her entrepreneurial journey at the age of 11, raising the bar of achievement for other teenagers.
