Entrepreneur and Electronics engineer, 26 years old, managing an IoT company with a keen focus on connected car technology.
As the only child of my parents, I developed a strong bond with technology in early childhood. I tinkered with toys, made something new out of them. I always wanted to know more, so used to break open every electronic gadget that came in my hand to understand how it works.
As I grew old, I developed a deep passion for engineering by seeing my love for cars and robotics, so I started engineering. During my engineering years, I was quite hands-on with electronics and did projects every semester out of curiosity. While others pursued grades, I pursued the real world implications of engineering.
Working on Iron-man suits and electric cars became my passion during engineering years. I understood that I cannot achieve this vision and by doing a 9 to 5 job. So I started with Car Chabi, my startup that later turned into a broader company IoT RoboArt. The struggle to achieve success by fulfilling one’s vision is a long journey, but I have high hopes to build something great out of my life.
