Nimish G.Thakkar: A Self – Made Entrepreneur With Unquenchable Thirst to Learn


A visionary leader with willful and progressive personality, Nimish has always been inclined towards innovation & technology and is confident that there is no age limit to be a student. A strong proponent of information sharing, Nimish has recently been invited to speak at the 2019 Horasis India Meeting, to be held in Segovia, Spain.

Nimish G. Thakkar is a self-made entrepreneur in the truest sense, who had a very humble beginning at the age of 19 when he started a medical distribution company with a mere sum of Rs.5,000. Albeit his entire journey was full of struggles, highs and lows, Nimish’s ‘never back down’ attitude and passion for making it big kept him going. A challenging but victorious journey paved his way towards an illustrious career as the creator of Zuvius Lifesciences, a Mumbai-based leading research-based Pharmaceutical company that focuses on the super-specialty segment of anti-cancer formulations.

Today, Zuvius is among one of top three companies renowned for its wide range of products (around 106 products in the oncology segment and 40 supportive products) and consistent availability. With three consecutive National Awards and two international awards, the company now stands tall as one of the major players in the anti-cancer drug segment and a trusted brand name among healthcare professionals & patients worldwide. In an exclusive conversation with CEO Insights, Nimish shares the peaks & valleys of his journey, the role his experience has played in chiseling him and his thirst for learning.
