I'm Vaibhav Kishnani, an engineer but a passionate writer by profession. I established Content-Whale in 2017 when I was in my third year of engineering. Going by the maxim that quality writing is everything, Content-Whale caters to 42 different content types that form the backstory of every company’s digital presence and marketing efforts.

I started this content agency with a mere sum of Rs. 2,500. Today, we have drawn a revenue turnover of Rs. 4 Crores! In my opinion, it is not individual progress. Instead, a start-up is about connecting with the right individuals at the right time, who keep the show running ahead with their strife for perfection.

Hey! My name is Josh, and I’m the founder of Plate Crate, a monthly box of baseball gear and greatness. (Think Barkbox for baseball). Each month our small team creates a themed box of baseball gear, training aids, accessories, snacks, and apparel to send to our baseball-obsessed subscribers.

After 6 years of working on Plate Crate, we are now doing over $300K a month in revenue. We have a big holiday season where we will do about $500-600K/month in November and December too. People love gift giving, and we are a great baseball gift. We’ve recently launched Soccer Crate as well off the thesis that over 80% of kids under 14 play multiple sports. We’ve seen our early progress in Soccer come directly from our baseball subscribers.

Hi everyone! Welcome to my crazy journey! My name is Kressa and I am the inventor of the Shower Toga-The world's first and only waterproof changing garment. And this below is the best picture I have ever taken-lol. People look at me and then look at this photo and say “That’s not you” so I guess the stars were aligned that day. Thank you Mark for inviting me to sit in your chair. So here is my story.

Giving back is very important to me. I have to say that as a small start-up company, giving back, to the extent that we do, is probably not the smartest financial move but I do my best to balance it. My goal is not to get rich. My goal is to grow my company and have security for my family, but more importantly, it is to make a difference in the lives of others. That can be something as simple as giving someone confidence to grab a bite to eat after a long, sweaty beach day or as complicated as helping a migrant child at the border clean up with privacy & dignity in a safe manner.
