I work with youth to help them build an entrepreneurial mindset and get ready for the rapidly changing world that we live in. Currently, I am a part of the founding team of the Enterprise Fellowship, which is a year long part time practical-MBA for budding young entrepreneurs. Participant, or ‘partners’ as they are called while they are a part of the program, learn business strategy, innovation and sustainability concepts as they are encouraged to incubate their own projects and business models.
I also work with organisations to help them ‘re-tune’ their culture and thought processes to get themselves ready for the world that is going to be dominated by Gen-Z - those who are currently in the age group of 16 to 25. In the next ten years then are going to be the largest customer base for most consumer businesses!
Fast and slow, big and small, art and science, tradition and rebellion. The dance of opposites inspires and thrills me! I believe that even in chaos, there is always a hidden order in everything in existence. When my mind is at peace, and when the time is right, I will certainly discover it.
As a student I have been for exchange programs to Australia and Denmark. These have been truly amongst the best periods of my life. In the process of discovering other cultures, my journey of finding myself had begun.
I am a Mechanical Engineer by training, and have done the PGDBM course from IIM – Ahmedabad.
My first job after IIM was with IBM. I was tasked with managing a few key global accounts. I spent 5 years in the corporate world, before venturing to start my own business of innovative ceramic gifting products (www.adipa.com). My ventures have led me to travel and do business in France, Dubai, Israel, Canada and USA.
I am very passionate about India and Indian youth, and believe that India is going to have a very important role to play in the world in the years to come.
In my free time I love to sketch and create caricatures of my favorite inspirational people. I am a foodie at heart, and love to eat as well as cook. Wherever me and my wife Aarti travel, we enjoy making local friends and dropping into their home for authentic cooking lessons. You can invite us for a home cooked meal at firstname.lastname@example.org!
