Helping Startups with Tech Projects: 


Manuj Aggarwal is an entrepreneur, investor, and CTO of TetraNoodle, a software consulting company that helps startup founders with tech projects. Manuj started his career at the age of 15, working in a factory for twelve hours a day, six days a week, earning a cool $2 per day.

While Manuj had no contacts or resources, he was determined to improve his life and realized education and the right training was the only way for him to achieve his goals. Consequently, Manuj managed to acquire a modest education and went on to become a technical leader and CTO in multiple startups. Furthermore, Manuj is passionate about education and training because, without it, these achievements would not have been possible.

While building his career, Manuj fought decades of anxiety, depression, and pessimism  by indulging in meditation and mindfulness. Also, he is deeply spiritual (not religious) and focuses on accessing and training his subconscious mind to create the life of his dreams actively. Finally, Manuj reminds us:  Let go of “shoulds” and live your life!
