Sanjay Kamlani's parents immigrated from India in 1967 in search of opportunity. His father immediately started a company importing birds, and went on to establish entrepreneurial ventures in real estate and women's garments, and now owns an Indian restaurant in South Beach. As CEO of Pangea3, a legal outsourcing firm, he’s come full circle: he recently returned to his parents’ homeland to pursue other business opportunities. "Today, we’re seeing lots of Indians returning to India or going for the first time, because they're seeing far more opportunity," he says.
