#1 Tell us about your life journey in brief?
I am professionally a Chartered Accountant from May 2014 batch. I practice Chartered Accountancy for a year after clearing my exams, but then finally moved on to run my own startup and scale it up globally. Since a very young age, I was into writing when I created SpringTide in 2011, which was a youth magazine with the single minded aim of providing the youngsters of the country a platform to raise a voice on issues which matter to them. The journey started with that and rest is history.
#2 What prompted you to start The Tech Portal?
My school friend and Co-Founder Deepanshu Khandelwal came up with the idea of The Tech Portal, during his college days. Back then, it was aimed at becoming a platform for research based articles and technology news. We came together with his editorial and technical skills, combined with my knowledge of Finance, Marketing & Business Development to create one of India’s leading digital media companies, Blue Box Media.
#5 What difficulties you face while running the show?
The difficulties are manifold. The first challenge is to convince people about online reading, because India is still at a very nascent stage when it comes to digital viewership. We are trying to evolve fast, and make it as user friendly and people-oriented as possible with easy to use and minimalistic mobile apps, more video content, but it always remains a challenge. Plus, right kind of hiring is always a difficulty when you need the very best to create quality output.
#6 What inspires you or keeps you going?
India is a land of inspiration. It inspires me every second, and the untapped potential and talent of this country keeps me going in every situation.
#7 Any fun/ memorable incident so far in this journey?
Too many to count! Every day brings something new, something funny, something exciting and something unforeseen. Its a roller coaster ride!
