    Founders of I Create, Inc., Harsh and Aruna Bhargava


    Founders of I Create, Inc., Harsh and Aruna Bhargava, were visiting India from the U.S.A in 1999. The Kargil war was going on. The army had advertised for 120 positions. There were so many unemployed youth that over one hundred thousand young men showed up for the jobs. A riot broke out, the police opened fire and three young men died - three young men who had come looking for jobs to support their families! It is this incidence that gave birth to the idea of I Create to both of them. Harsh and Aruna then decided to start an organization that would help create jobs and job creators or entrepreneurs through entrepreneurship training in India.
