APIA will give me an opportunity to meet many inspiring people who are as passionate as me to solve a problem affecting millions. Networking and interacting with them would help me gain new perspectives and challenge my way of thinking. Being a part of such an intellectually vibrant entrepreneurial environment would enable me to solve a real problem. I firmly believe that this would be the most satisfying experience for me because I have always thought of helping mankind as being a significant achievement.

I have represented my country in Hult Prize Regional finals organised by Hult International Business School and Bill Clinton Foundation. Out of 45 teams from 20 different countries, my team secured a position among the top 6 teams. I have also been awarded the first prize in innovation category in Solve4India competition organised by the Prime Minister of India in 2018 in which 1300+ nationwide startups had participated. Besides this, my startup secured the silver medal in Inter IIT Tech Meet 2018, third prize in Sociopreneur, an event organised by IIM Calcutta(2018) and first prize in IIT Madras Startup Competition(2019).

I aim to solve a problem in healthcare. Presently, India and China are amongst the youngest countries on the planet. Some years down the line, today’s youth will be tomorrow’s patient. So, we already have a big problem to tackle in future in terms of providing accessible healthcare and managing them. As the computational cost is reducing year after year, I believe that computational methods will be the only possible solution to provide accurate and accessible healthcare. Algorithms and technologies like IoT would also help us solve the problem of effectively managing the available healthcare.

I am really very passionate to give something to the world by devoting my life in solving a problem affecting the masses.  My ability to work collaboratively with my team coupled with my motivational skills, curiosity to learn new things and perseverance would drive me to do full justice to this program.
