Mr. Shashwat Jain

Achiever's Success Story

The Backbone of Pokerdangal

If data is the new oil, then knowing how to refine it into actionable intelligence is the key to unleashing its hidden potential. Well, this is what matches the skill set of Pokerdangal’s admirably talented co-founder and head of operations, Mr.Shashwat Jain.

Just like his wingmen at Pokerdangal, Mr. Shashwat also likes to play professional Poker. But his surpassed knowledge & interest in data operations and analytics justifies his hardworking educational background.

After graduating from IIT Dhanbad, Mr. Shashwat handled one of the most talent imperative positions at Amazon.com as a business analyst. To spark the vision to become an entrepreneur, he left the honorable and handsomely paying job at Amazon, and accepted working for BOX8 (A food tech start-up that packages daily food in easy to consume format) as their core team member. Mr. Shashwat’s extremeness in Data Science, Hands-on Coding, Big-Data/Analytics Tools & Techniques, and ability to convince multiple stakeholders through data insights, helped BOX8 from 10 to nearly 100 outlets in several cities across India and reach the current valuation of more than 100 Million Dollars.

After achieving this milestone, he finally found him capable enough to establish his own empire from scratch. Therefore, he shook hands with founders of Pokerdangal (Varun Mahna& Varun Puri), who were his old friends, and accepted the designation of Co-Founder.

Mr. Shashwat is a firm believer of novelty, and when asked to share a quote to inspire the young and visionary youth of the nation who wants to become entrepreneur in their life, then his own words were – “Do not let fear stop you, just commit to your goals, and you’ll see yourself living your dream”.
