SALUTING THE SPIRIT OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Dreams that see the most beautiful realization, are never about a billion dollar valuation; they are always about a
billion dollar value system. At the heart of any success story are four pillars, structure, systems, strategy and process.
It is always a visionary and a entrepreneur’s ability to use these four pillars in setting up a timeless success story .
The structure is important because it lends stability to the start up. A system, at the same time, plays a very important
role to provide the discipline and four walls of a primary task, strategy adds the most important angle of speedy
innovation that any start up needs for scaling up and processes glue all of the above in a form that there is harmony and
integrity when all the pillars co-exist.Being what you are, believing inwhat you can do, with the hope that it will all be
given up for a good cause were the fundamental emotions that I used to bank on when I started this journey and hold on to
these till date, just as close.There has always been a difference between where I wanted to be, how I wanted to be and
what happened to it after I was long gone. During the course of my journey as an entrepreneur, I mentored many bright and
smart young people which went on to lay the foundations of a very strong team who were very clear from the beginning about
why they were a team and what was the difference between their mission, vision and primary task. They also knew that
targets, vision, change with time, change with achievements, change with changes that come along the road but the primary
task of the mentor and his team always remains the same and that is how we were wedded as a team to ensure that our
existence was because our primary task and which came about to be known as – “SMILE with SCIENCE”.Rolling out the above
was crazy , but as Steve Jobs said: “Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits, the rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs
in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. You can quote them, disagree with
them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them, because they change things. They push the
human race forward,and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the ones who are crazy enough to
think that they can change the world, are the ones who do.”At American Precoat, our existence has been synonymous with
novel innovations, cost effective manufacturing, environment friendly products – all in organic fields. Since its
inception in 1997, the group has structured itself logically and uniquely to have both Thermoplastic and Thermosetting
polymers expertise under one roof. The company has been able to diversify in – Coil Coatings, Food Coatings, Lining and
Sealing Systems, Phase Change Polymers and other Speciality Chemicals.With a CAGR of 35% per year for the last 05 Years,
800 employees, in 6 manufacturing locations spread in three continents globally, American Precoat (Shubh Gautam) is a
diversified specialty chemical entity, which combines the power of science and technology to provide products, which

shadow brands like Coca Cola, Pepsico, Nestle, TATA, Arcelor, LG , Samsung ,Carlsberg,Fosters,Delmonte, Nampaq etc
etc..When you are young, Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. One should neverallow one to
be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions
drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. A entrepreneur
already know’s what they truly want to become. Everything else is secondary. This is what is a true entrepreneurial spirit
that I nurtured in quest for being a crazy black sheep in the family who wanted to go out and change his world through
manufacturing of speciality chemicals after chucking away his well paid job with fortune 50 brands.This journey has not
been one without many storms that came in the way, and it is these storms that teach you a lot. And once the storm is
over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is
really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s
what this storm’s all about.Competing and Beating fortune 50 companies via manufacturing of products was not a easy ride
if we did not believe in being hungry and foolish – As we discovered later this was also a fundamental success mantra’s of
the master Steve Jobs as we connect the dots . The Whole Earth Catalogue was a popular publication started by Stewart
Brand in Menlo Park in Silicon Valley in 1940s. Its poetic pinch made it a bible for kids growing up in the valley in
1950’s and 1960’s. The last publication of the The Whole Earth Catalog, was in the mid- 1970s. On the back cover of their
final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were
so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: “Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.” It was their farewell message as they signed off.
Stay Hungry & Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself.” This was the legends inspiration and this has been
the group’s inspiration so far–
From the brand whose motto is “SMILE WITH SCIENCE”
