Signature Start Up Masterclass is a celebration of 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, Ankur shared his story of how he grew up in the small
town of Roorkee, and as a kid was rejected by his school choir because of a cracked voice.
His father bought him a guitar and he instantly fell in love with the instrument and began
practicing regularly with his teacher.

Gradually, he started playing on his own while he pursued a degree in Hotel Management
from Bhopal. He often escaped ragging by playing tunes on his guitar for his seniors. He
started singing and playing in a hotel near the Bhopal airport which was the first time he
got a crowd. During his industrial training in Taj Mansingh Hotel, while doing his daily
chores, he realised this life is not for him.

He went to Mumbai to try his luck at different record labels, but that did not work
too well for him. He moved to Delhi, where he got refuge from an acquaintance Colonel
Kapoor. During this time, he succeeded in contributing to stage plays, short films, sing
radio jingles and score for the TV series 'Ek Aur Fauji'. This is when his network grew
stronger. He co-directed a film 'Let's Enjoy' and moved to Mumbai to edit it, which
featured the well-known song 'Sabse Peeche Hum Khade'. He eventually composed the
soundtrack for 'Aao Wish Karein' in 2009. At this stage, he was recognized by music label
HOM records, which launched his first album Jannat in 2011.

Over the course of time he has been an integral part of the entertainment industry -
as an actor in 'Luck By Chance', '7 Khoon Maaf' and 'Slumdog Millionaire', as a script
writer for 'Tere Bin Ladin', as a music director in Soundtrack, 'Raat Gayi Baat Gayi' and
'Ek Chaalis Ki Last Local' among others. Presently, he is considered as a multi-faceted
star in the Indian film industry.

To quote the celebrity artist, "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 no matter how hard the struggle is."

The evening witnessed a remarkable turnout at the S Cafe, comprising of youngsters
looking for inspiration to turn their passion into paycheck. Following the interactive
session, the audience was entertained by Ankur and the Ghalat Family's live performance.
