Nilay Mehrotra met Raj Garg at a common friend’s birthday party. Their engineering background got them off to a great start and what started as a casual conversation ended up in an intense discussion on start-up ideas. The duo soon launched their first start-up, in home automation, in November 2016. In a span of a few months, they realised that the start-up won’t fly given the numerous players already present in the segment. But that didn’t stop them from pursuing their next idea.
