Tulsi Tanti is the Chairman and MD of Suzlon Energy, a $1 million market cap wind power-based company. He and his two siblings own 94.33% of the company. Tanti began his career as a textile manufacturer. However, he was limited due to infrastructural bottlenecks, including the cost and unavailability of power, which formed a high proportion of the operating expense of the textile industry. He then moved into wind power production and founded Suzlon Energy.
