It may sound weird for a sports enthusiast to be in IIT. Right? 

Well, Saumil Majmudar, our guest today, says that it’s possible, and that it’s an excuse kids make, there are a lot of people who balance academics and sports. They can coexist!

Sports have always been a part of his life and it’s something he assumes should be in life always. 

Saumil Majmudar is the Co-founder, CEO and Managing Director of Sportz Village, which aims to get 100 million children to play. Prior to starting Sportz Village, Saumil was the Founder-CEO of QSupport (one of India’s first remote tech support businesses) and worked with Wipro (Global R&D) in the International marketing team.

Saumil holds a B-Tech degree & is a Distinguished Service Alumnus from IIT-Bombay, a PGDM from IIM-Bangalore, a Basic Mountaineering Degree from Nehru Institute of Mountaineering (Uttarkashi) & a Black belt in Karate.

Doesn’t it sound incredible? Well that has not been the case from the beginning.
