What is your new venture?

MonuMenu - An online marketplace for home cooking. Too many people are settling for fast food, not enough people have the time or skill to cook at home, but people are getting more conscious of what they're eating, and people are more and more intrigued by foods from different cultures. We want to help everyday chefs make some money through their hobby, and we want to give foodies access to new food experiences.

Are you actively practicing Lean Startup?

I have read Steve Blank's presentations, and we are actively bootstrapping and participating in the customer development process. We're talking to as many customers (everyday chefs) as we can find and getting their input on our services and features. I will definitely be reading 4 Steps to the Epiphany, and it would be great to meet with people and bounce ideas off each other to gain a better understanding of the processes used in practice.

Have you read "The Four Steps to the Epiphany"? (hint, hint :)

Not yet, but that will be the next book I buy :)

Are you in to doing adventure races, triathlons, crazy stuff?

I wanted to do Tough Mudder last year but had to travel last minute. Now that I'm quitting my day job I don't have that excuse. I always try everything once. I love snowboarding, camping, and hiking. I've tried kayaking a couple times and would love to go again. Last year I tried stand up comedy and when I get the time I will do that again. Crazy stuff in a different context.

What is your linkedin address?


I'm Kaustubh Bhardwaj. I grew up in the Atlanta area and graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in Electrical Engineering. I'm quitting my job later this month to focus full time on a web-based startup that I started. Looking to learn and to help
