About the Author

Jason Kothari is a passionate entrepreneur and business turnaround leader. While still in college, he acquired the bankrupt US-based Valiant Entertainment and led its transformation as the CEO to the third-largest superhero entertainment company after Marvel and DC and a sale for $100 million, a record industry return. Subsequently, Jason was the CEO of Housing.com, where he led the transformation of the distressed company and a merger with News Corp's PropTiger to create the $350 million industry leader. Following this, he was the Chief Strategy & Investment Officer of Snapdeal, where he played a lead role in transforming the distressed company from a monthly loss of over $20 million to a profit, the first for an Indian e-commerce company. Jason was also the CEO of FreeCharge, where he led the sale of the company to Axis Bank for $60 million. In addition, he has been a senior advisor to Softbank; Noon.com, a Middle Eastern e-commerce company that has raised $1 billion; and is a Board Director of Emaar India, which has over $2 billion in real estate assets. He is also an Executive Producer of Bloodshot (Sony Pictures) starring Vin Diesel. Jason holds a B.S. from The Wharton School and lives in Mumbai. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.


‘One of the most riveting, raw, authentic and insightful stories of an entrepreneur I have ever come across. An epic turnaround journey that is a must-read for young readers.’– Karan Johar

‘I have known Jason for some time and have always been impressed with his drive, clarity and vision. This biography has helped me appreciate him even more. From the time he handles a tough negotiation for a chess set as a child, to his turnaround brilliance in the corporate world, there is a lot that entrepreneurs can learn from him; not just bookish, theoretical knowledge, but actual real-life lessons learnt from the School of Hard Knocks. This book is a must-read if you are an entrepreneur!’ – Amish Tripathi, best-selling author of The Shiva Trilogy

‘Living and surviving across continents, embracing and seeking challenges, and finding enormous courage in difficult situations, Jason has an inspiring story which needs to be told. A self-made entrepreneur, he recounts the many risks and learnings that will strike a note with seasoned founders and promoters as well as the new-age tech whiz kids. Thoroughly engaging, anecdotal and without a moment of ennui … this one comes straight from the heart and says it as it is!’ – Priti Rathi Gupta, MD, Anand Rathi

‘A very engaging, hard-hitting yet emotionally bound narrative of a rebel turned enviable entrepreneur. Thought-provoking depiction of what one makes of the advantages and challenges life throws at you whilst relishing the highs, surviving the lows, fighting the anguish and through it all superbly carving a niche for oneself. A delightfully interesting and fascinating read, which has made me respect Jason even more for his fighting spirit, grit, confidence and determination.’ – Anuj Puri, Chairman, Anarock Property Consultants

‘I have had the privilege to work closely with Jason in multiple turnaround situations. Jason’s calmness, clarity, candour and co-ordination helps him effectively navigate through the stormiest of situations. Any company in crisis should have Jason on speed dial.’ – Suvir Sujan, Co-founder, Nexus Venture Partners; Board Director, Housing.com and Snapdeal

‘The way to make a small fortune in entertainment is to start with a large one. The business of making comics and turning them into TV shows, motion pictures and merchandise is challenging and complex. Jason, at Valiant Entertainment, was exceptional. His success in reviving Valiant from the ashes is a rare and admirable feat. Jason is a very sharp, dynamic, relentless yet balanced entrepreneurial leader with a wonderful sense of humour and humility who maintains good cheer even through the most trying of times.’ – Bill Jemas, former COO, Marvel Entertainment

‘To believe you can, to educate yourself to be able and to find the doors and, if necessary, the windows and make it happen. Jason walks the walk and learnt a long time ago, there is no box to think out of. To create and invent is divine, but to implement is what it really is about. Jason knows.’ – Peter Dekom, former Partner, Bloom, Dekom & Hergott, named by Premiere magazine as one of the 50 Most Powerful People in Hollywood --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
