Shantanu was a software developer for McKinsey in the United States of America when it all started. Shantanu's curiosity was piqued after a casual conversation with a friend who was interning at Harry's, a New York-based shaving company. Shantanu realised that India could benefit from a revolution in the grooming space after his friend mentioned how shaving brands in America are challenging the likes of Gillette and PRO.Shantanu then surveyed his colleagues, relatives, and the general public about shaving practices and concluded that no one enjoys shaving because men despise the everyday routine. Bombay Shaving Company was born as a result of this.Bombay Shaving Company raised $ 9 million in funding since its inception and now sells more than 40 products across four categories (shaving, bath, beard and skincare.)Shantanu's Social Media Handles ⤵︎Instagram  @thebarbershopwithshantanu  https://www.instagram.com/thebarbershopwithshantanu/Twitter @shantanukdhttps://twitter.com/shantanukd•   •   •🎧 Stream Figuring Out episodes on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/736rhmW7vilNgkFFo8aDz4📺 Watch Figuring Out episodes on YouTube:https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE0Jo6NF_JYO5-phess8GKafKMtPv3tfZ☑️ Subscribe to Figuring Out Clips:https://www.youtube.com/c/FiguringOutClips•   •   •00:00 - Introduction03:18 - Smaller cities are better than Tier 1 cities06:38 - Why is greed good?08:05 - Economy Vs Business in flights13:36 - Flipkart Vs McKinsey15:38 - Superpower of Founders18:17 - How do you develop connection with your team?24:15 - Raj’s biggest mistake in his entrepreneurship journey26:19 - Biggest mistake of Shantanu in Bombay Shaving Company29:49 - Founders should not be optimistic?36:20 - Why did you choose entrepreneurship?42:11 - Every successful person is privileged44:05 - Wealth vs Privilege50:38 - Parents on their kids success54:45 - Biggest opportunity for our generation56:51 - American Investment in India57:27 - Story behind Bombay Shaving Company1:04:50 - Large businesses vs startups1:07:51 - Brands in India1:11:52 - How to find the startup idea?1:19:22 - How to judge the value system of Founders?1:24:53 - 3 important things in startup ideas1:27:32 - Most successful unsexy businesses in India1:33:54 - Why Parachute is successful?1:37:01 - Consumer brands in India1:38:07 - Should businesses be profitable from beginning?1:42:17 - How do founders make money?1:47:13 - Work life balance1:53:15 - Shantanu on his 18 hours work Linkedin post2:00:14 - How to build a brand?2:05:04 - Next big opportunity in India?2:07:45 - How can we improve?2:11:26 - Interview round for CEO of Bombay Shaving Company2:17:22 -
