Pethinaidu Veluchamy started his first business while working on his Ph.D. Today, he runs a nine-business conglomerate that's one of the largest minority-owned businesses in Chicago.
...
While attending the University of Washington in the late 1960s, Pethinaidu Veluchamy sold magazine subscriptions at college campuses to help pay his tuition.Then Veluchamy, who was working as an agent for Time Magazine, Newsweek and Reader's Digest, discovered that instead of selling each magazine separately, he could package them into one brochure and increase sales.
With that experience in hand, in 1974, while working on his Ph.D. in chemical engineering at the University of Illinois, he started his first business, University Subscription Service.Then, using his profits as seed money, he started a mass mailing service for direct marketing companies and a credit card embossing service.
Thirty years after starting the subscription company, Veluchamy owns nine businesses that provide services for the direct marketing industry, Mutual Bank and several real estate holdings.
...
"With all these companies, I have to rent the real estate from somebody, so I started buying the buildings and renting to the companies," Veluchamy says."It's a nice opportunity.When you make money, you have to shelter it the proper way.Real estate is one of the things that gave me the opportunity to shelter the income."
Veluchamy spoke with Smart Business about his growing enterprises, direct marketing trends and issues facing minority business owners.
