How did you get to become an expert in your key topics?

Being part of NACUE, UK I met and expanded my social capital with more than a thousand entrepreneurs including my childhood hero Sir Richard Branson. I have been working on Global Silicon Triangle, a decentralised global blockchain technology consortium, an initiative responsible for the exchange of open-source software development, sharing and exchange of technical expertise among the three most famous hubs for technology companies in America, Europe, and Asia i.e. Silicon Valley of California, Silicon Roundabout of London and Silicon Plateau of Bangalore. It aims to create a tech entrepreneurial hub inter-connecting the 3 main technology clusters and assists companies and individuals considering to locate or do business in the Silicon triangle by providing infrastructure support, human resource support, and by facilitating introductions to the government and business community.
Digital India Hack-a-thon, ‘Ideation to MVP’ in 36hours, is an initiative taken by me to inspire young developers & designers and bring together entrepreneurs and investors to empower Hon’ble Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India campaign. I am a next-gen member of the UK-India Business Council, StartUp Britain Local Champion for Ealing Borough, Startup World’s India Ambassador, TEDx Speaker & campaigner, and Development Ambassador to The Asian Foundation for Philanthropy. I won the 2010 Networking champion award at ‘Bright Futures’ organised by Kingston University, London. I was also nominated for the ‘Young Entrepreneur of the Year, UK’ award in 2010-11 for his contribution to the StartUp Ecosystem in the UK (The Brand Global).
I am involved in ‘Indian Blockchain Council’ & ‘US-India Blockchain Council’ because he believes, “if the world will be an Ecosystem of opportunity then breakthrough ideas can be found anywhere” and want to create a global entrepreneurial cluster for Start-ups without any border.
My future plans: “To have an alternative funding ecosystem which can provide on-demand flexible finance model to established entrepreneurs where they can park their money and budding entrepreneurs can use when they most need it.” Because for me, “A strong economy needs to encourage entrepreneurs to create and grow their businesses.”
