I’m an entrepreneur, ex-management consultant and occasional angel investor. I also help out startup incubators / accelerators when I can do justice by providing my time. During my time in consulting, I was fortunate enough to work with CxOs from a wide-ranging set of industries such as High tech, Consumer internet, Banking & financial services, Healthcare and Life sciences across the US, Canada and Europe. I did my MBA from Indian School of Business (ISB) Hyderabad in 2005 and my BE (Computer Science) from National Institute of Engineering.
While I am currently the co-founder of Wakefit, India’s leading direct to consumer (D2C) home & sleep solutions company, my previous two ventures weren’t exactly roaring successes. They shut down and I wasn’t left with any financial resources by the end of those attempts. I was also in a bad place mentally, having put in everything I had, and yet not tasted success. But the lessons I learned there have always shown me the right path.
I’ve written posts on startups on Times of India, YourStory, here, and also speak when possible with one single intent – Is there a way that some of my learnings can help other startups who may be battling the same problems that I did over the past 11 years as an entrepreneur?
