In a world where many young professionals opt for safe and conventional career paths, Vansh Mahajan dared to be different. While many sought stabilities, Vansh Mahajan aimed for the stars, crafting an entrepreneurial story that reads more like an adventure novel than a standard career. His journey began with a dose of timely exploration, creating a healthcare AI system that could predict covid from your symptoms – which was much needed at that point in 2020. The project was bought by a company showcasing its effectiveness and success. Well, he didn't just stop there. Vansh, in his pursuit of tech wisdom, decided to take up courses from one of India's most prestigious tech institutions, IIT Madras. But here's where the plot gets interesting, when he took entrepreneurship seriously and founded RENPAY, which is incubated by NASSCOM. Subsequently, he co-founded Work plete with Jackson Jesionowski, a company on a mission to build a real-life Jarvis in a workplace, automating every boring job.

Workplete's mission to create artificial general intelligence (AGI) and automate workflows for employees is a testament to Vansh's visionary leadership. The company aims to rid employees of mundane, repetitive tasks by using AI, essentially redefining work efficiency and productivity. He engages in an interview with CEO Insights.

Moreover, as the Chief Technology Officer, I've been instrumental in expanding our reach.

Collecting and analyzing their data has been invaluable for refining our solutions and reaching new audiences. With previous startup experience and a strong network, I've developed effective strategies for Workplete's growth and success in the market.

Tell us about your leadership approach. What motivates your daily routine as a leader?
My leadership approach is built on open communication and collaboration. I believe in fostering an environment where sharing insights is crucial. Understanding the strengths and weaknesses of my team members allows me to provide tailored support for their growth. I employ a hands-on approach, often assigning tasks to team members even if they're unfamiliar with them. This encourages problem-solving and self-reliance. By doing so, I aim to unlock their potential and promote continuous skill development. Motivation is at the core of my leadership, as I understand that a
motivated team is a high-performing team. These guidelines and methodologies collectively shape my leadership style, empowering my team to excel.

My vision is for the company to play a pivotal role in being part of the country’s business and tech development, in turn the economy. I want my name to be associated with this journey, marking my commitment to this mission, and that's what drives me as an industry leader today.

What is the future destination you are headed towards?
I am dedicated to acquiring knowledge and exploring unique avenues, particularly in the realm of robotics and AI. As a Co-founder of an AI company, we're pioneering AI solutions for the digital world. My plan is a two-step process: first, we'll perfect AI for the digital landscape, and then we'll extend our capabilities to the physical world. The ultimate goal is to create a holistic robotic system that empowers individuals to stream line their work and tasks. I envision a future where technology enhances our daily lives in meaningful ways.

In light of your strong professional experience within the industry, what would be your advice to budding industry leaders, going forward?
I'd offer a simple yet powerful piece of message to emerging industry leaders: never let go of the childlike curiosity and belief in yourself. That inner child holds the key to making the impossible a reality. Throughout my journey, nurturing that youthful enthusiasm has been my driving force. So, my message is clear – hold on to that spark of imagination and self-belief; it's what propels us to achieve the extraordinary and reach new heights in this ever-evolving domain.
