Entrepreneurship requires a special kind of person, but that could be anyone from anywhere. That includes a young Gaurav "G" Patel, who immigrated to the US when he was just ten years old and knew no English. Today, at 38 years of age, G Patel is one of Raleigh's hardest-working and most well-known figures in the hospitality industry. G is the founder of the Eschelon Experiences hospitality group, co-founder of Social House Vodka,  and commercial real estate expert with CityPlat.

Listen to today's episode of Piece of the Pai to hear G Patel talk to host Nesha Pai about a wide range of topics including how G was able to become an entrepreneur despite the cultural and language barriers of immigrating to the US at a young age. G also talks about what success means to him (hint: it's not measured in awards or recognition), what motivates him each day, and the irreplaceable value of experience.
