On this episode of the #CLP we sit down with former National team Badminton player, serial entrepreneur and tech investor, Prakash Chand. Kash has been a friend and mentor for the past five years and it was great to be able to sit down and pick his brain. We discuss his career ending injury and how business became a substitute for the hard work he was putting in on the court and why athletes love biz. We also dive into his relationship with education coming from and an East Indian family and why he decided to get rid of social media. We loved the interview and hope you do as well!
