“I do not limit myself from thinking insane things, and trying to figure a logic on if you can do it” - Nakul Kumar
I have always found this debate fascinating - “Are entrepreneurs born or are they made?” and I usually get my guests on the Founder Thesis podcast to share their points of view on this. I had the pleasure of sitting down with Nakul Kumar of Cashify for a candid chat where we discussed everything right from being a student to building a successful eCommerce business. He was very enthusiastic about sharing his knowledge & experiences. And he had some unconventional insights on things.
Nakul Kumar is the Co-founder of Cashify, a recommerce leader in India with a focus on smartphones. Nakul is an MDI Gurgaon graduate and a serial entrepreneur. His first business was in the waste management domain where Nakul successfully started and managed the operations of a waste management plant and made gold from garbage.
Today Cashify is the official buyback partner for top brands in smartphones such as Apple, Samsung & Xiaomi to name a few. Apart from buyback they also sell refurbished smartphones, smartphone accessories & smartphone repairs. Originating in 2013, Cashify now has over 15 Lakh customers & over 1 Million App Downloads.
