Harshad is full of determination and passionate about his business. He is not afraid to take risks. Three things that really stand out about him are confidence, craving for learning and wisdom that failure is a part of the game.

His deep domain knowledge and out of the box thinking has helped me in growing and understanding the franchise business.

We were initially struggling to get foot falls at Vashi, Navi Mumbai store. His valuable advice and guidance on how to increase foot falls has resulted in the store turning profitable. We have benefitted greatly by our association with him.

One thing that I have personally learnt from him is long term planning. At a very young age Harshad has also seen failure and success. There is a lot to learn from him. I would certainly recommend an association with Mr.Thakkar as he is sincere, committed, hardworking and a master in connecting the dots in business.

In 2003, when I started to work with him, I vividly remember, a small compact office of Valentine but a very ambitious and positive Harshad Thakkar. Because of some consistent 9 years of work with him, I was able to make my own studio.

He always gave me the freedom to execute my work the way I would recommend and that was the reason why I was able to produce fabulous work for Valentine.

A passionate personality, he inspires by personal example. He has a lot of clarity in his thoughts and he is very easy to work with. He is a thorough professional with an amazing heart and drive to see his dreams with open eyes. He is committed and brings his dreams to
reality.

I’d like to sum it up saying, if anyone wants to learn how to be passionate, creative and a real life hero, he must meet Valentine’s Harshad Thakkar.

As an investor, working with Mr Thakkar, I found him to be very smart and a hardworking gentleman. He follows discipline and punctuality to the core. I admire him being available 24X7 whenever required and at the same time being committed to maintain a good and healthy work life balance.

The dynamic and visionary businessman was instrumental in helping me understand the nuances of the apparels and textiles industry and its business models.

I would certainly recommend an investor or collaborator to work with Mr Thakkar because he is a dynamic and visionary businessman, super energetic and excellent executionist, plus fashion and aesthetically very strong.

I have been using valentine products and found them super comfortable and of high quality and I wish him best of luck to take his brands and his organization to touch new heights.
