Blippar boss: 'I was quite a rebel'

Rish Mitra began his business career in the slums of Delhi selling magazines and working on a tea stall. Now he's the founder and boss of Blippar - a visual search browser and fast growing augmented reality player valued at $1.5bn (£1bn).

He's one of a raft of successful entrepreneurs across the UK who are offering advice and guidance to anyone wanting to set up their own business.

He told the BBC's Victoria Fritz why he ran away from home to live in a slum.
