When we were kids, whatever we did, we put our heart and soul into every single little or grand pursuit we embarked upon, trying our best to move the gears and turn it into something beautiful. Years later, very little did we know about unforeseen situations in our careers and life. While it is not easy to keep up with our talents and values, very few people keep that spark alive to actually make a difference.
A true example of this is Tanmay Arora, who challenges himself by putting an extreme amount of effort into everything he does. What makes Tanmay unique is his passion, discipline, and belief in his ideas which took him on his entrepreneurial journey to create- Unwired India, Co-found – Bully the Bears, and lead as the Managing Director at Weaving Waves.
Tanmay is now set on the path of innovative leadership and creating a strategic impact through his work. He truly cares about making the world a better place through evolving next-gen technologies.
The Journey of a True Entrepreneur: Spearheading 3 Startups from the Ground-Up
Tanmay’s journey as an entrepreneur started about five years ago. Having worked at a couple of premier research and academic institutions, he decided to employ his academic knowledge in the business domain and spearhead three startups. From neurotech (Unwired India) to Fintech (Bully the Bears) and Fashion (Weaving Waves), he has traversed across multiple domains to find how the same transferable skillsets are the key factors that lead to success across most new avenues that one may choose to embark upon.
Through this process, Tanmay overcame several personal and professional challenges. A critical obstacle that he had to resolve in the process involved leveraging his time efficiently and effectively, particularly the barter between time and money, to manage his several entrepreneurial and personal pursuits. He realized how true growth lies in embodying one’s true authentic self, owning up to one’s unique identity—taking complete ownership & accountability of every aspect of people’s lives by choosing the path of most resistance & practicing unmitigated monk-like discipline in all things.
Learnings, reflections & realizations have driven Tanmay’s entire journey he found along the way. He realized how the hardest thing to do is almost always the right thing to do and how true growth lies in things we do not want to do.
Traversing Domains: A Journey of Innovations & Intersections
As a Neuro-technology startup, innovation is at the heart of Tanmay’s businesses. The team combines technology and consumerism to bring the latest scientific developments to the homes and lives of the people. Research and Development driven by science and technology are fundamental to the functioning of Unwired India, allowing them to identify potential roadblocks at a fairly early stage and stay at the forefront of technological development and innovation.
At Unwired India, the organization believes in a user-driven approach, as it aims to make personalized, consumer-centric Indian innovations the primary objective. The company believes in utilizing the efforts of traditional Indian artisans, cultivators, and farmers to pay back to society. It gives due recognition to the contribution of the traditional artisans as ‘co-creators’ in manufacturing the products. By integrating knowledge and long-established skills with the modern approach and resources, the organization aims to boost its social-economic development and drive its expertise beyond borders.

Words of Inspiration
Sharing his thoughts to the budding entrepreneurs, Tanmay says, “The universe will ask you who you are; if you don’t have an answer to that, the world will tell you exactly who you are and what you’re destined for to be. It will make you settle for whatever restrictive definition they’ve concocted for your existence. Don’t let somebody else tell you who you are, how you’re supposed to feel, or how you’re supposed to be.
Own every little aspect of your identity and life with a sense of extreme accountability, self-discipline, and ownership. Consistency and Longevity are the key factors that will completely transform your personal and professional life if you let them. Be willing to suffer along the process and relentlessly strive to actualize what you were always destined to do. Reflect. Re-engage. Realize.”
