Tejbir Singh, Current Fellow
- Food & Beverage
2013 MBA, Sloan School of Management
“When I think about my life ahead, I consistently see myself as a global entrepreneur. I see my businesses creating value for my employees, for my society and for myself.”
Tejbir Singh wants to respond to the ever-expanding “demand vs. supply vacuum” in India, caused by a growing middle class. To do this, Tejbir has opened a bakery which he wants to scale into a national chain. His enterprise is both capital and labor intensive, but has a business model that is simple and straightforward. Tejbir aims to provide value-added and innovative products at reasonable prices to the consumer, while also providing employment opportunities.
Tejbir gained valuable experience working in mergers and acquisitions at Citigroup.
Leveraging this experience, he acquired Trigen, a struggling electrical component manufacturing company, and assisted in making the company successful and sustainable. He went on to launch Greenfields, a food processing company in India. His combined experiences have sparked his interest in opening a bread manufacturing company.
Tejbir is enrolled as an MBA candidate at the MIT Sloan School of Management. He also holds a BS in Finance, Management and Economics from Washington University in St. Louis.
