Achiever's Success Story

Revolutionizing the Sneaker Industry

Akshar Bonu has been an entrepreneur all his life, starting at nine years old when he sold Yu-Gi-Oh cards to classmates for extra money. Since then, the serial entrepreneur has created numerous technology businesses that have been recognized for their global impact and that have attracted widespread international media attention. Today, he is the co-founder and CEO of The Custom Movement, and his track record of outstanding contributions that radically transform industries has only continued.

Akshar Bonu is a graduate of Harvard University with a degree in computer science. He is a serial entrepreneur with his past businesses featured in acclaimed international media and having recognized global impact and today is the co-founder and CEO of The Custom Movement. It is an innovative global e-commerce marketplace that has disrupted the sneaker industry by empowering artists around the world, including those in India, to design and sell their own custom sneakers. It has become one of the most prominent marketplaces for customized items in the world.

 

With millions of users around the world, significant celebrity and business collaborations, in addition to a wide reaching social media following amongst the largest in the world, the impact of The Custom Movement is hard to miss. So emphatic has been the growth in sneaker artists and sneaker customization that in May of 2022 Disney released a Cinderella remake featuring a sneaker customizer, Sneakerella. His work is recognized for helping the next generation of creatives make a living through their passions in turn making the world a more creative place.

 

A testament to his impact, he and his work has been featured in major publications such as Vogue Business, Nylon, TechTimes, TechCrunch, IB Times, BizJournals, TechInAsia, Forbes, The Face amongst others. He has been recognized with various awards including the Business Leader of the Year Award by the International Achievements Research Center and Forbes 30 Under 30. He was admitted to and raised funding from the world’s most prestigious startup programs including Y Combinator and Pear Ventures accelerators. In addition to being a member of Y Combinator, Pear VC Accelerator, and the Forbes 30 Under 30 Network, he has also been admitted to the Young Entrepreneurs Council, an organization of the world’s most successful entrepreneurs 45 and younger and Leaders in Excellence Harvard Square, an exclusive organization for top leaders.

 

Because of his work, he frequently mentors, advises businesses on products, consults, speaks and judges at nationally and internationally recognised conferences, and is a published author with a focus on e-commerce, entrepreneurship, and custom sneakers and more.
