CE: Tell us about your growing up years and family background. What city were you born and brought up in?
Sandeep Ahirwar: I was born and raised in a small but remarkable city, Guna, on the banks of river Parvati. I did all my schooling there. I was an average student although science was very exciting for me. With a dad who is a government employee and mom, a housewife, you can call me a privileged kid who had freedom to do what he wanted.
I always enjoyed figuring out how things work. My love for computers and technology naturally took me to pursuing Computer Engineering from SGSITS, Indore.
I was always fascinated by business tycoons. Reading their success stories, daydreaming, watching TVF pitchers became my favourite time pass. Entrepreneurial mindset took over most of my conscious mind.
I always look around for problems that I can solve and starting up.
