Episode 1 of ‘Billion Dollar Idea’ Season 2 goes live on Sunday, July 16th, 2023 and features thought-provoking conversations with Anish Achuthan, Co-founder of Open Money, India’s 100th unicorn, as he shares candid insights into making his #BillionDollarIdea a reality.

Jasper Reid, entrepreneur, and host of the show adds, “An entrepreneur’s journey is never easy. It requires unwavering zeal, the courage to face failure, and the willingness to take risks and handle uncertainty.
