Kapil’s journey to finding his ultimate passion in tech investing included many pit stops — he explored being a commercial pilot, a chef, and other experiences worth sharing over a cold beverage.
He has lived in Singapore, India, and Tanzania and looks for every opportunity to travel with family and friends. He enjoys watching Bollywood movies, is an amateur photographer, and experiments with every new flight simulation game that comes to market.
