It was during my final year of college when the startup wave caught me. As I was very passionate about T-shirts. As it helps in expressing your mood. But somehow after passing out of college things doesn't work as planned did my job in the financial sector. Started an agriculture-based company. Which taught me the real game about the business. For the execution of Smiling Panda, I needed a co-founder who is also motivated about the t-shirt business. One weekend during a friend get-together, I pitched my idea to Nitesh Sharma. Who is in the finance sector? He is my childhood friend. Topper in every class and college since childhood. He liked my idea and was on board for the journey called smiling panda. I got my second co-founder Sarbadaman Gupto who is the main pillar among the three of us. As he is a Master in history and a superbike rider. And a wonderful graphic designer. Who looks after T-shirt quality and designed the latest trend. After all the preparation from name to USP. We finally launched our company on 15 august 2021. And the rest is history.
