i read there was a time he sold sim cards in his hometown. he was a dropout at 17 because he was not really interested in academics. but one thing he was clear about was his goal. he wanted to be an entrepreneur. he skipped the college for two years and also the engineering entrance exams. initially he received a seed funding of 30 lakhs. later on with theil fellowship he received a grant of $100,000 which was for the entrepreneurs less than 20 of age. his zeal and dedication is what drove him to success.
