In this episode, Young Turks put a spotlight on what it takes to build a company - the journey of an enterprise from being an idea to a startup to a full-blown IPO-ready business is not easy. Founders and investors need a long-term vision that can take the business from being a pony to a unicorn.

The name of a new book written by lifecycle investor Sanjeev Agarwal and angel investor, mentor and management guru TN Hari is ‘From Pony to Unicorn: Scaling a Start-Up Sustainably’.

The book describes the tale of every startup aspiring to become a unicorn -- right from explaining the principles involved in scaling, the book is also peppered with anecdotes and insights derived from the authors' experiences ranging from building and guiding start-ups that went on to attain the 'unicorn' status and became public-listed companies.

CNBC-TV18’s Shereen Bhan is in conversation with authors of the book Sanjeev Aggarwal, Senior MD at Helion Venture Partners and TN Hari, Angel Investor.
