10 Things I Learnt As A Thiel Fellow

I dropped out of college within days of joining because I felt that attending classes would slow me down from doing what I really wanted to do - building my own start-up. This journey began with Oravel in 2012 and I later pivoted to OYO Rooms in 2013; this was the same year in which I was selected for the Thiel Fellowship, a two-year program that every year admits 20 people under the age of 20. I received a support grant of $100,000 and access to mentors while I went about pursuing my start-up dream.
