In 2015, two friends were working out of a small basement in a house in Bengaluru. The basement had a few laptops, chairs, a table and a mosquito bat. “Lanwin Pais and I started as event enthusiasts during college -planning and organising experiences for F&B clients. We decided to leverage our network of reliable contacts within the F&B industry and start a business. The basement of my house would become our first office,” says Mayur Tekwani. Mayur and his St. Joseph’s College of Commerce batchmate Lanwin worked full time jobs at a family textile business and Amazon, respectively, and took the decision to quit so they could start a business. Mayur co-founded Think Tree Media when he was 22 -around the same age as Lanwin. But Lanwin had been organising events for Bengaluru restaurants and pubs before Mayur.
