You might be thinking that why Kunal is getting the special mention? Everyone studies in school so what is so different about him? He might be studying some important laws of physics at this young age. And might be a bit worried about the subject which he would have to choose after 10th standard.
In the age when most of the kids spend most of their time studying and playing, Kunal finds something interesting to devote his time to. Rather than playing outside coding was something which excites him. At such a young age Kunal started web development and develops his interest in it. He says he enjoys every second that he spends while coding.
At the age of 15, Kunal Chandiramani is one of the youngest entrepreneurs a TEDx speaker as well. He is also a great speaker and an inspiration for millions of young minds.
Kunal Chandiramani at the age of 15, is the founder of two great startups named KStar & Compacademy. He has not only just started his 2 companies in Bhopal but he also made them quite successful, he is also a team member of Google’s AI (Developer community programme for Actions on google).
He has great experience in the field of computer hacking. And has won the first rank in it at IIT Bombay. At such a young age he is pro at Machine learning and AI.
He has spoken at TEDx, Prestige Institute of management and research as well as gave a number of interviews. Those were featured in a number of newspapers in city circulation and was also features on television at HBTV Yuva (youth) around the state.
There is no such thing as failure, it is only the experience. It is the thing that makes us good at doing something. He started thinking about the problems when he was just 8 years old. And then he involved himself in finding the solutions to solve these problems at such a young age.
While other kids of his age admire Sachin, Dhoni, and Shahrukh, Kunal Chandiramani admires and gets inspired by Jeff Basso, Nick Bostrom, and Elon Musk and for sure our own missile man, APJ Abdul Kalam. According to Kunal, motivation comes from questioning everything, just being curious and feel free to ask how, why and ask questions.
“Don’t look for motivation outside, look for motivation inside. Because when the motivation inside is zero even if the motivation outside is hundred, zero multiplies with hundred becomes zero. But when the motivation inside is two and motivation outside is hundred, two multiplied by fifty, it becomes hundred.”
He believes that there is no age to start a start-up or to become an entrepreneur, whenever you feel like there’s a problem which needs to be solved, and you think you can solve, just go for it. A young age is the perfect incubating time for almost all kinds of startups.
As you have a kind of financial support from your parents. And a failure at this level is something more like a well-structured experience for the upcoming arena. He also insists to share your ideas with not only prospective clients but also with someone who has no idea at all to get insights about how he/she perceives it. Because if you can explain something to a complete newbie then, you know what you are chasing, you know what you want to deliver.
