Kapil and Palash have graduated from IIT Kanpur in 2014 and Manohar will be graduating in 2015.
Kapil and Palash have been working together in Alumni Contact Program since past 3 years and are currently leading the whole Alumni Relation Campaign for IIT Kanpur. They have absolutely transformed the meaning of Alumni Relations for IIT Kanpur from the way it was seen when they joined the campaign. Their efforts have led to an enormous increase in popularity of the Alumni Relation among students and Alumni. They also belong to the same department, Chemical Engineering.
Kapil and Manohar lived in adjacent rooms in hostels and are close friends since past 4 years. They frequently kept on discussing innovative ventures that were coming up.
A year ago, Kapil discussed the idea of Almashines with Palash and Manhohar and all three came together to raise the Next Big Thing. They have been closely working over the business idea to prepare a scaleable product. The whole structure of AlmaShines is a result of yearlong brainstorming sessions of all the three founders.
