Phos DEAD

Creative consultant

Worked with a Tibetan Restaurant in Bangalore and introduced a fun new experience called "cloud on table" with dry ice and hot water for customers on Valentine's. Saw a 33% revenue jump in 3 days

The nice challenge DEAD

Was building a paid online challenge where people would upload a video of themselves doing something nice for someone else and the best videos would win huge prizes. Closed down because of legal and payment provider's issues

100 Years Online DEAD

Dorm canteen

Operated a night canteen from my dorm, made a few hundred dollars in profit initially but lost them eventually as demand died

Dorm delivery

Started a delivery service from the city to our college for online orders as amazon/flipkart didn't deliver to our college for being outside the city. Stopped after 30 days as all ecommerce websites started delivering.

Village school rennovation

I wanted to teach in a village school but learnt the bigger problem was good infrastructure. Recruited 30 other students in college, collected $1000 and built a toilet, water tank and filtration method. Wanted to do more but donated the remaining money to an NGO who put in $3000 more to repaint the school, fix structural problems, install blackboards everywhere and give students chairs and tables to study on
