Entrepreneurship is a calling. There’s no other way I can explain why I’d go through the stress, headache and frustrations of being an entrepreneur.
I built Tapprs.com into a dominant player in the camera rental business in Bangalore. I have decentralised the operations and it is now run by its own team that reports to me. While I am still dedicated to scaling Tapprs, I am also exploring adding another business to our portfolio.
I am an investor too, in my personal capacity.
My interest is in building sustainable, capital-efficient and customer-focussed businesses.
My inspirations in business are Les Schwab (Les Schwab tires), Kochouseph Chittilappilly (V-Guard founder), Warren Buffett (Berkshire Hathaway) and Mark Leonard (Constellation software).
Over the last few years, I have attempted several things, been through failures and learned a ton. Sometimes, I try to capture that in a blog post. Hopefully, you will find it useful.
