Draper University: Where are you from? How did your upbringing influence your decision to pursue entrepreneurship?
Akshay: I am from India, and have lived across three cities: Delhi, Hyderabad and Bangalore. Born in a middle class family, to a super ethical journalist father and a teacher mother, who sacrificed a lot to give me ‘access to education and growth’, I always tried to hustle my way to ‘match up’ with my friends at school.
