Rahul Bapat, Chief - Operations, Creditsafe
It is not the altitude of the hurdle that decides the height of an athlete's jump, but the count of his courage, self-belief and the viscosity of his undefeated attitude decides the apex. Coming from a humble background, Rahul Bapat not only witnessed a lot of hardships in the prime stage of his life but complemented by his `Try, fall, but fly again' attitude, he steadily learned to navigate through those obstacles to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit within him. Born in a humble family that struggled ineffably to make both ends meet, Rahul was initially raised by a single mother, who supported him against all odds by doing chores for others. When school fees got unaffordable, Rahul unhesitatingly got down to the street to sell books, clothes, wallets, belts, household utensils, fire crackers, and anything he could to get himself back to school.
