Story behind CustKart:
When I was in 3rd year in my B.Tech degree. I watched a show called TVF Pitchers and started thinking about my idea. When all the classmate were studying for their semester exams and placements, I was googling how to start a startup. During a chance encounter I met Prof Tej Chingtham (currently, CEO at AIC-SMUTBI) and discussed my startup idea with him. He has been instrumental in making things move as a founder. AIC-SMUTBI has all the ingredients of a right startup founder who just walks in with an idea.
I bunked so many classes and labs to work on my startup. During that time I had a one idea, and that was to start a salon aggregator and to become a one stop destination for all grooming needs. Me, my two cofounders started working on it. During placement session one of the cofounders got placed in AMAZON and he decided to quit the team. The other cofounder also decided to call it quit because of family pressure. It was depressing since I was left all alone. Occasionally I get this deep feeling that I made a mistake, by not having taken up placement offers in my college. Then in December of 2018 I decided to put one last attempt push with something very different from what I thought of, that is to print t-shirts for a college fest of some of the colleges. And then Custkart was born.
