IITian, Wharton MBA, ex-IPS officer- after many detours and experiments, Rajan found his ikigai in entrepreneurship.
Rajan has lived a life defined by curiosity, growth, and a relentless pursuit of excellence. With a diverse background that encompasses both technical expertise and a deep commitment to serving others, he is a true visionary whose journey thus far has been marked by a passion for innovation, a thirst for knowledge, and an unwavering commitment to making a difference.
After graduating in Electrical Engineering from IIT Kanpur, Rajan joined the Indian Police Service and served as the Trivandrum Police Commissioner.
At 28, he headed a police force of 3,500 people. He loved his job, but shortly after intellectual stagnation seeped in.
With 30-odd years left to serve and a guaranteed rise to the top, Rajan made the bold decision to quit and pursue an MBA at the prestigious Wharton School. He then went on to work as a consultant at McKinsey in New York, and subsequently as an investment professional at a billion-dollar private equity fund upon returning to India.
Despite these impressive accomplishments, Rajan’s insatiable desire for new challenges continued to drive him. Eventually, he decided to take the leap into entrepreneurship, embarking on a new chapter in his already illustrious career.
Presently, Rajan is the founder of a habit-building startup called HabitStrong.
You could think of HabitStrong as a gym for habit-building.
HabitStrong conducts online bootcamps to build life-changing habits that help inculcate discipline, focus, mindfulness, and a no-compromise mindset. It is devoted to helping people systematically adopt good habits and improve the quality of their lives.
While there is plenty of content available for consumption, it often never makes an impact. HabitStrong makes apparent behavior change happen through a scientific, no-nonsense approach, mostly based on his personal life experiences. Best-selling programs include digital detox, building a mindful morning routine, deep work, and focused learning.
In this fortnightly newsletter that has over 25,000+ subscribers, Rajan shares inspiring lessons and stories from his career as an IPS officer, McKinsey consultant, investor, and now, as a startup founder.
