Kapil hails from a small town near Ujjain district in MP, India. After completing high-school from Birla Public School, he moved to Pune for further studies in 2006. He graduated in Foreign Trade from the University of Pune.
Like most of us, highly unfocused and oblivious about life’s vision, he pursued Law to add some weight on resume and started hunting job; the criteria was never the interest but money, initially. Guess what? Only rejections were in fate. As they say: the destination of persistence is success. Finally, he got a break in KPMG, Pune. He joined as Business Auditor in 2009. After successfully leading its audit wing, he joined Ernst and Young as Risk Advisor in 2011. Working in two among top four was like dream coming true, especially in early 20s. That made him experience corporate work culture, risk management, team collaboration, exhaustive projects and last but not least: relationship building.
In course of drawing handsome salary, he realized a crucial aspect of career – a sense of satisfaction. Yes, the satisfaction of working for self not for someone, achieving excellence not promotions, and building relations not bank account. After weighing settled life in corporates versus bruising knees in startup, he daringly chose the latter. He quit E&Y in 2014 to walk his own path.
When pondered about passion, the first thing that would hit his mind was food; and having roots from MP, where people go to bed with a mouth stuffed with gulab jamun, completely justify the thought. Earning money from selling junk food is ordinary but he walked an extra mile and chose to serve healthy items in the plate with sleek margin. Not bad! – As Health was priority over profits. He was among beginners in Pune to launch authentic healthy Khakhras straight from Gujarat. He set a vision to knick start a manufacturing plant. Today the brand is popularly known as Gujju Khakhra pan Pune serving lip smacking taste with health benefits.
As they say, “Entrepreneurs live the life others don’t so that they can live the life others can’t.” Inspired by this thought, Kapil aspires to be a nextgen entrepreneur by providing best quality Khakhras filled with love, health, and deliciousness.
