Welcome to Episode 2 of the Immpreneur Podcast.
In this episode, Kundan Joshi and I share an amazing journey of success in Canada as an immigrant.
Kundan is a Canadian entrepreneur who came to Canada with his family in 2000, when he became a fresh software engineering student in the Western University. His entrepreneurial journey started in university as he went through all the blood, sweat, and tears to attract clients in the evenings after a bunch of careers as a software engineer. Kundan was so passionate, ambitious, and motivated along his entrepreneurial journey and gave up pessimism to align anything in his neighborhood with his goal.
It was in 2007 that Kundan set up the AppLab, the leading app innovation firm focused on strategy, design and development of apps & emerging technologies. As a new immigrant, Kundan wrestled with a number of challenges, rangining from the new business infrastructure in Canada, raising a capital, hiring a team, cultural barriers and “fear of unknown”.
Kundan believed his biggest milestone was to incorporate a mindset that keeps entrepreneurs open to new challenges, learning, and attitudes. He received the 2018 RBC Entrepreneur of the Year Award and 2018 Top 25 Canadian Immigrants Award.
Today, Kundan serves as a wonderful partner, investor, and advisor to 52 tech startups, and his firm, theAppLabb, has built over 600 apps in the last 13 years through 8 global offices and over 100 employees. Some of their clients include Unilever, Samsung, Dell, Petro Canada, RBC, JBS, Hudson's Bay, and TIFF, among others. It is also ranked among the Top 40 Best Workplaces in Canada by Globe and Mail Great Places to Work by 2021.
