Q: What is your biggest life lesson, or key takeaway from this interview, that you would like to stick with our readers?
Vikas: Live a life with purpose and you’ll have very few wasted days or regrets.
Q: Can you tell us more about yourself? What is your passion?
Vikas: I always used to feel like I grew up with less but I totally missed the fact until I was much older that I had something truly priceless – a family that loved, cared and nurtured me and always had my back. I started working young and my work-life balance was through creating impact. When I finally decided to take the plunge to start a company, I felt determined to lead a life that was 100% focused on fulfilling my purpose.
Q: What was the inspiration for starting abillionveg and how did you get started?
Vikas: Even as a life-long vegetarian going vegan I felt there were a lot of challenges. And at the same time, I felt committing to veganism was one of the most inspiring and empowering things I ever did for myself and my family. So I wanted to create something that helped shorten that gap from where it felt challenging and sacrificial to when it started to feel uplifting and easy. I got started in 2017 by taking a coding bootcamp where I ended up meeting our first few team members.
Q: What are your happiest moments with abillionveg?
Vikas: When I meet “users in the wild” which is just another way of saying when I run into members of our community who I don’t know and they start telling me about abillionveg and thanking us for what we’re doing.
Q: What future do you hope to create through your work at abillionveg?
Vikas: The company’s name is our mission. We’re grateful to be part of a small but growing group of companies around the world that are working to create a world where consumers can create impact through their everyday choices.
Q: What is the biggest obstacle you face in achieving this future?
Vikas: At this stage, it’s all about getting more talented people on board with the company and ensuring that we have the staying power required to make abillionveg truly impactful.
