Are entrepreneurs born at some turning point in their lives, a point where the path ahead is quite uncertain? Life of VKC, as he is fondly called after the brand name of his own company – VKC footwears, is one such testimony to the above aphorism. Mr. Mammed Koya, now 79, worked on many odd jobs in his youth before he became a phenomenally successful entrepreneur and a revered politician too, always engaged in very many social activities. Dr. Sherif Aziz is in conversation with Mr. V.K.C Mammed Koya, the chairman of the VKC Group of companies.
