Take us through your professional journey. What inspired you to take up the leadership role at Techwheels?
I started my first industrial oil refinery at the age of 18 in North India. Our venture adopted new technologies and within a short span of time, we were able to gain 50 percent of the market share in Rajasthan. While pursuing my MBA,
I started telecom retail & distribution of IT Products startup i-Switch. I was able to create platforms for many leading brands like Blackberry, LG, Samsung, Imate & More. Soon enough I came to be known as the Father of Smartphones in North India. By 2014, I entered TATA Motors and with my expertise in automation & digitalization, I became the youngest SIF board member of the company. My biggest takeaway from the telecom industry was the transformation from Feature phone to Smart Phones, i.e., 2G to 3G. I saw a similar potential for change in the automotive industry where EV is taking over IC engines. This transformational opportunity made me invest in Techwheels.

I have always believed in transforming crises into opportunities and because of this very thought, today, I am successfully mentoring startups and leading multiple businesses

The major roadblock for me was creating an acceptance within my team for the changing technological advancements. I had a tough time making them believe in technology and making them comfortable in the newly adapted environment. I kept them motivating and providing them with continuous training which helped them to fit into the digital era.

What has been the success mantra that constantly helps you arrive at positive outcomes?
I believe progress is impossible without change. Hence, my mantra for success is to be able to change my mindset with time and grow with the growing technologies.
