Conversation with an Indian Entrepreneur
After working for around 2 years in Adobe and 7.5 years in Goldman Sachs and saving enough (after paying the loans), Mr. Kant started working on his product with an aspiration of making a dent through his hard work. Mr. Kant had always proved to be among the extraordinary, not only in academics but in extracurricular activities as well. He scored an All India Rank of 67 in JEE and got voted as the President of Student Gymkhana - IIT Kanpur, during his tenure as a student in the Dept. of Computer Science Engineering. He is currently serving as the Board of Director of the Alumni Association fo IIT Kanpur.

His entrepreneurial journey was flagged off with a product that revolutionized the interface for air travel booking. Not only did his team offered an innovative User Interface but introduced a call option feature for air tickets and a price lock, killing the risk of the fare increase and cancellation fee by paying a small premium. It was later made live on Cleartrip on up to 310 routes. Fareportal acquihired his venture in Sep 2017, which offered Mr. Kant the time to focus more on his passion of bodybuilding. He mentioned that Jugaad or the ability to get things done is one of the essential skills for being a successful entrepreneur. It was during a deadlift that he encountered with the idea for his next startup - Aggois, that was born out of a desire to give farmers an endurable future. Aggois helps a farmer covering the market risk by getting a minimum guaranteed price for their products and get upfront payment against valid MSP receipts.

As a person, Mr. Kant is a kind gentleman and a down to earth personality. He takes his passion of bodybuilding very seriously and had recently been a receipt of honor from Musclemania Physique Masters. He has the ability to maintain a cool and think logically for the solution to any problem in hand which helps him take the right decision in the worst of any situation. Mr. Kant suggests that one should not stop doing experiments in one's life until the real passion can be recognised.
