CHARTER MEMBER HIGHLIGHT
Prasoon Gupta is the Co-Founder and Director of Sattviko, which is a lifestyle brand producing healthy diet food. Sattviko was awarded "Best Debutante Restaurant Chain" and "Best Food Brand of India” by the Ministry of Skill Development, Government of India.
Talking about his journey, Prasoon says "It has now been almost nine years since I became an entrepreneur. I was in my last year of undergrad at IIT Roorkee and started my first venture in education called Techbuddy. From the first four wonderful years of scaling Techbuddy, training more than 1 lakh students and selling it, to the last four years of growing Sattviko into India's fastest growing snack food brand, the journey has been super rewarding & adventurous. In all the ups and downs, I am glad that I have been fortunate to have a highly supportive family and a rockstar bunch of colleagues in my team who have always stayed with me. All in all, my journey could not have been any better."
He advises young entrepreneurs to "Build an awesome team.” He says, "More than the product and market opportunity, what matters is the people who are building your business with you. A great team with a very big vision, supported by a pool of great mentors is what creates large businesses."
