Signature Startup Masterclass is a celebration of the real life success stories and
provides a unique platform to passionate individuals who are looking for the right
inspiration and guidance by giving them an opportunity to hear their icons share the story
of how they managed to successfully convert their passion into paycheck.

During the Masterclass session, Riyaaz shared the story how at the age of 16, he
started his career as a shoe salesman in Mumbai, a mundane job which was sufficient to
earn a decent livelihood, but his ambition was to pursue his passion and do something
different in the space of food and beverage. In 2001, he started his own first unique café
- Mocha, in Churchgate and since then he has never looked back.

The success of Mocha as a modern day coffee shop gave him the confidence to push
boundaries and today he is the CEO and MD of the Impressario Group which operates 33-odd
restaurants and cafes including some of the most unique and popular contemporary eateries
in the country, such as Salt Water Café, Social and Smoke House Deli. Riyaaz is the
youngest person to receive the 'Best Restaurateur' in India at the Time Out Food Awards.

The celebrity restaurateur, Amlani said, "We all have ambitions and dreams but not
many are inspired enough to pursue them and that is the reason I am very happy to be a
part of Signature Start Up Masterclass as it helps me in encouraging people to follow
their passion and make a mark for themselves."

The evening witnessed a remarkable turnout at Antisocial, who were looking for
inspiration to turn their passion into paycheck. Following the interactive session, the
audience was entertained by a live performance by the bands - Bit of Both and
