The Parsis of India are perhaps the world’s smallest ethnic community whose entrepreneurial contribution to India has far exceeded their size in numbers. This paper traces the rise of the Parsis as entrepreneurs in Indian society from the 16th century in Surat and later Mumbai to their significant presence today amongst India’s major business houses with household names such as the Tatas, Wadias and Godrej.
