Let's Talk

MVK Group was created due to the Founder, Manish Karani suffering from Type 1 Diabetes and losing his Father suddenly. This adversity propelled Manish into starting MVK Group.

A podcast which creates an environment where Entrepreneurs / Individuals going through difficult times can openly talk and engage with individuals about what went ‘wrong’ and to be surrounded by people who can simply say, it’s ok, and work through the challenging times together.
 
Some of the most successful people in the world e.g. Oprah, Ronaldo, Pele, Bezos suffered personal loss and sacrifice and went on to become some of the most leading entrepreneurs in the world – they failed so many times and some had underlying health concerns e.g. diabetes or lost family members suddenly. 
 
There are so many people who go through these difficult times and feel alone – and at MVK Group we want them to know that they are not. I want to create a place where people to talk through these adverse events and have people who understand them support.
