Arunabh Kumar inspires the Gurgaon crowd at Signature Start Up Masterclass

MUMBAI: Signature Start Up Masterclass session in Gurgaon had the storyteller Arunabh Kumar share his passion to paycheck journeyduring a free-wheeling chat with the witty host Cyrus Sahukar.

Signature Start Up Masterclass is a celebration of the real life success stories and provides a unique platform to passionate individuals who are looking for the right inspiration and guidance by giving them an opportunity to hear their icons share the story of how they managed to successfully convert their passion into paycheck.

During the Masterclass session, Arunabh shared his story of how his future was decided for him, when he went to Kota to prepare for IIT and made it in the next attempt, however, he had bigger dreams to fulfil. Arunabh came to Mumbai to work in a US Air Force project when he realised his discomfort of working in a technical environment. Through his alumni network he got the opportunity to work as an assistant to Farah Khan in Om Shanti Om, soon to be followed by a stint in the popular Delhi Belly.

Eventually, Arunabh started The Viral Fever in 2011 as a production house for branded content and later the desire to make originals shows led him to start the YouTube network. TVF is the first company in the country in the area of Youth Entertainment to create Progressive and New-Age Content. He created India’s first original web content – Rowdies – under TVF’s Online Network for Entertainment, that went viral and with 1 million views in less than 5 days. Presently, the channel has over 185 videos and India's Two Most successful series – Permanent Roommates and Pitchers, with over 50 million views.

With a 15 member team, 2 offices, one in Mumbai and the other Delhi, and as the 2nd biggest New Media network in the country for youth entertainment, Arunabh Kumar’s story is nothing less than an amalgamation of inspiration and passion.

To quote the New Media Entrepreneur, “We all have ambitions and dreams but not many are inspired enough to pursue them and that is the reason I am very happy to be a part of Signature Start Up Masterclass as it helps me in encouraging people to follow their passion no matter how crazy it is.”

The evening witnessed a remarkable turnout at Imperfecto, Cyberhub, comprising of people who were seeking inspiration to turn their passion into paycheck. Following the interactive session, the audience was entertained by a live performance by the band PCRC.

Signature Start up Masterclass is headed to Pune on 11th June 2016, with Kunal Kapoor and Varun Sheth. Book your tickets on:
