Signature Start Up 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 Raghu shared the story of how he began his career as a
microbiologist, and was pegged to be involved in the field of Science for the rest of his
life. He had many talents, including being a master level Bharatanatyam dancer. However,
he decided to pursue Microbiology dedicatedly.

While working as a scientist, he realised that music was his calling and he pursued it
vehemently. One day, after numerous concerts and attempts at getting his music released by
record labels in the country, he was asked by his friend, producer Shashank Ghosh to
perform at a club in Mumbai where he was spotted by music stalwarts like Vishal Shekhar.
They took a chance on Raghu by launching his first album in collaboration with
Counter-Culture Records in 2007. After all his efforts, Raghu Dixit got a launch pad for
his music career.

With his band, 'The Raghu Dixit Project', he has performed in over a thousand concerts
in over 25 different countries all over the world. All the songs, written and composed by
Dixit are representative of India's culture today, with a mix of tradition and culture
that is presented with musical influences from around the world. Raghu then went on to
score music for both Bollywood and Kannada movies.

To quote the celebrity musician, "I was thrilled to be back in Hyderabad for the
Signature Start Up Masterclass. It's an honour to be associated with a platform in India
that motivates people to follow their passion and make a mark for themselves. It was very
interesting for me to interact with the talented and passionate people in the city and I
hope they follow their hearts and make their dreams come to life."  

The evening witnessed a remarkable turnout at The Hard Rock Cafe, all of whom were
motivated to turn their passion into paycheck. Following the interactive session, the
audience was entertained by a live performance by Raghu Dixit himself.
