James Joseph did something that only a few are brave enough to do. He quit his high-paying job as a Microsoft director to start a venture based solely on a fruit. Taking his love for jackfruit to a whole new level, he started Jackfruit 365, a company that sells the fruit in a packaged, freeze-dried form, and gradually, his efforts put the mostly non-like able fruit on the global super food map.
His disruptive yet productive approaches as a Microsoft Director and a path-breaking concept has led him to win awards like Circle of Excellence, the highest award for Sales and Marketing employees across the world at Microsoft, Start-Up Entrepreneur of the Year at TiEcon Kerala 2013, New Age ICON d’ YOUTH Kerala 2011, etc.
James is also an author and his first book ‘God’s Own Office- How One Man Worked for a Global Giant from a Village in Kerala‘. Such a dynamic personality was well deserving to be one of our top speakers.
Watch him sharing his ideas at TEDxNirmaUniversity on “Why green Jackfruit is the perfect Indian plate for diabetes?”.
