The idea of starting over from the bottom might seem impossible for most of the people born into privilege. In spite of being born into the family business, British Businessman Tej Lalvani had to start from the bottom and gradually ascend the hierarchy to reach where he is now and garner the net worth he has earned!

The British-native is the CEO of the UK’s largest vitamin company, Vitabiotics. He's also a television personality on BBC’s entrepreneurship-themed show Dragon’s Den. As one of the Dragons (investors) on the series, he along with other investors are presented with various idea pitches from entrepreneurs.

With the height of Vitabiotics, Tej is often termed as the 'Prince of Vitamins'. To find out how he reached there, here are some exciting wikis about him ranging from his difficult upbringing, his traditional wedding to his supportive wife.

1. Parents Separation At Early Age Toughened Tej Lalvani

On 13 July 1974, Tej was born to a scientist father, Prof. Katar Singh Lalvani and Miss India mother, Malathi Lalvani in India.

Separation of parents early in his age made him go back and forth between India and UK as his father was based in the UK and his mother in India.

2. How Tej Lalvani Rose Through Ranks From Sticking Labels to CEO!

Tej has amassed the staggering net worth of £ 275 million (according to wiki), and that is only his personal net worth without counting how much his family owns.

As a label sticker and fork-lifter, he started working in his own father’s pharmaceutical company, Vitabiotics. But through his sheer work ethic, he went on to become the boss of the company. Although the company was already colossal, he took it to the ultimate height never even imagined before.

Since his ascendency into the CEO role, Vitabiotics has become the largest vitamin company in the UK with the annual turnover of £300 million (according to the wiki).

Apart from the huge personal and company net worth, Lalvani has been awarded numerous awards such as Young Entrepreneur of the Year in both Asian Business Award 2012 and TiE UK Awards 2013. His company, Vitabiotics, was also awarded Queen’s Award for Innovation in Vitamin Research in 2013.
