"While studying Mechanical Engineering at VIT Pune, I worked on a lot of green energy projects, and that is how I discovered my acumen for science. Upon the suggestion of my professors, I decided to pursue a Master's in Nanotechnology in the USA. I got admitted to UC San Diego there and thus began my journey.After completing my MS, I joined a startup as the CTO. We were grinding to get the investors, advertise, market, research, and everything that initiation of a startup requires. Along this journey, we were taken up by Techstars Accelerator, which brought a lot of entrepreneurs together. In one such evening with ten other entrepreneurs, the idea of my startup today was seeded in my brain. That day things were taking their normal course until this one founder stood up in the middle of the room and yelled, asking if anyone knew about Worker's Compensation, to which a 2nd entrepreneur responded, shouting equally loud, "What is Worker's Compensation?" Later, after all the loud exchange of queries, a 3rd founder stood up to tell them that he, in fact, did know what it was and was willing to help them with it.That is when the idea of an entrepreneur helping another entrepreneur struck my mind and never left. I did not act upon it while I was there in the USA. When the pandemic hit, the investors pulled their money, my visa was about to run out, and everything else was also falling apart. I returned to India thinking that I would fulfil my long-lost dream of working for my country and returning all that it has done for me. That is when I remembered that very loud and enlightening day and started working towards a network for entrepreneurs, mentors, freelancers, and investors, to serve the purpose of information flow through them.Working here in India has made me realise that it does not matter what we have; what matters is what we do with what we have."
