I started StartupDispatch as a place to write about startups and technology.
Over time, as I started working on my own startup (which is about e-books and digital publishing – that’s all the details I can reveal at the moment), I became increasingly fascinated with smaller bootstrapped startups doing wonderful things away from the spotlight of the funded giants stomping through the TechCrunchs and Mashables of the world.
At the same time, I was a little disgusted with what I saw as an unnecessary and ultimately destructive focus on funding. Many startup founders I’ve spoken to hold raising a large funding round, and not turning a profit, as their ultimate goal. Certainly, a large funding round is cheered with so much fervor in the industry that one would be led to believe that funding itself is the ultimate barometer of success, and not profit, or doing something incredible.
Which is why I tend to write exclusively about bootstrapped and self-funded startups on StartupDispatch.
Startup Dispatch showcases new bootstrapped startups almost every day. I also write about relevant technology issues and squeeze in a post or two about things that might inspire or educate fellow founders.

I’m a 23 year old blogger, entrepreneur and self-taught programmer based out of Delhi, India. When I’m not hard at work on my publishing startup, I enjoy reading (Marquez, Kundera, and Rushdie are among my favorite authors) and writing fiction. Hit me up if you want to talk startups, technology, literature, and writing.
