We are a business advisory company in India called Preseed Ventures Pvt. Ltd. We are a result of our founder’s blog, this website - Preseed. His haters call him an objective asshole. You may too, if you can’t back your gut or ego with intelligent reasoning and facts. Even your belief in god needs to be addressed with that level of reasoning, just in case you wanted to touch that topic with him. For you are allowed to touch absolutely any topic in the universe with him. When he dives deep with you in realms that look subjective to you, he will still be being objective. He will have deep rooted reasons, and you will have to stretch your imagination to see those reasons. It’s on you fellows, like it is on us, his team. Only if he sugarquoted and had filters, our lives would have been less intense, and he wouldn’t have been called an objective asshole. If you are looking for lesser intensity and sugarquoting. This is a wrong place. If you are looking to build some meaningful company or build Preseed further, this is THE PLACE.
Disclaimer: We will be timeless in our results, but not in our objective conduct towards action. The result of which will be your great company.
This blog must be read well and to great lengths, however, it will never be perfect or complete. It’s chronicling our reality, as it moves forward, by the day.
To us Nishchal is not an objective asshole. He is an all seeing eye, on a mission. And in that journey he cares about no one more than the mission itself. For it is in this mission he can actually take better care of one and all.
Nishchal’s mission of greater freedom to billions of people, spoken. Listen to it keenly.
Even the strongest men in his situation would begin to conform to norms. Yet, he is not the man who will succumb to circumstances. Many times over the last 10 years he has hit rock bottom. Every penny he makes, he invested in his software whims to do good in this society. He continued to compensate his teams, over and above his own survival, to at times sleep with no roof, cash, food and phone. Even his family lost all of it a long time ago when he was barely 20. He was pressed by his family and well wishers to take up a job, for he was receiving lucrative job offers by the day. He was criticised by those who ones loved him. A person in his situation should have not survived. In this period of struggle, no one came to his aid. He kept his head held high, didn’t take up a job and still sails forward like a warrior on his mission to free the world from present structures, boundaries and meanings. This journey is leading him into a true story of rarest courage and conviction, as it unfolds before the world, in more action than words, over a long period of time.
He lives in the world of extraordinary ideas, idealism, inspiration, simplicity, a bicycle,
a backpack, some yoga and lots of action. He questions, inspires and teaches us to be who
we are becoming on this journey together. He does this in his well informed, imaginative,
idealistic, bold and democratic style of leadership, unique only to him.
He is Preseed’s first resident Yoga exponent and researcher.
He thinks like a very few can. He see more with eyes shut than open. Hire him and his team to IMAGINE for you. We may become your fundamental unfair advantage. He is in his early 30s, and has a way to express his theory of no god or the origin of the universe, its end and what after the end, without using religion and mysticism. We have never known anyone who can express such complex ideas with such ease, passion and simplicity. When one asks him, how do you know all this and how do you dabble between spirituality and the material world of technology. He says, "Firsly, none of what I know is my own. It is all just flowing through me. The reason for that is resonation. I am at the same frequency as the fundamental truth itself". And then he goes on to explain how energy flows into each other and how shapes and forms take place. So, one of his favourite quotes is -
"I think the trouble with being a critical thinker or an atheist, or a humanist is that you’re right. And it’s quite hard being right in the face of people who are wrong without sounding like a fuckwit. People go ‘Do you think the vast majority of the world is wrong?’ Well, yes. I don’t know how to say that nicely, but yes." - TIM MINCHIN
He is unabashed in praising you as he is unabashed in praising himself. He says, "Why should I draw a line in the way I talk about you when in praise, and the way I talk about me, when in self praise. Why should I treat you and I differently if are both worthy. I like honesty far above and beyond humility". Yet he is humble. We love that. He may say not everyone is an equal, and then go on to prove it through frequencies of atoms rendering different shapes and forms. He is an extraordinary person.
Nishchal has been an entrepreneur of 10 plus years. He has lectured in business along side the likes of Ritesh Agarwal, founder of OYORooms.com. He has also received director/co-founder level offers from founders of 91springboard and Embibe to join them in their own companies. You may notice Nishchal has knowledge beyond his years. You may read more about him from the social links above. We highly recommend you read about him as much as you can (in the order of social links mentioned above). He will change your life. For the topic he dwelled in most about in his life, is life itself. We bet he has done a fantastic job at it.
His life's purpose may be summed up as following :-
1. Karma - His purpose is to work in the area of liberating people through technology entrepreneurship of the righteous intent, so that at least some of them could truly and soulfully do that what is meaningful to their soul.
2. Dharma - He walks the path of karma also to help (wo)mankind make progress through their own actions towards liberating them from their non scientific and rigid beliefs of life and universe, so that they could do what they find harmony in. Hence, his purpose is also to ensure that the soul is not ignored any more. His purpose is to understand and impart the awareness of the god's vibe through yoga.
3. Seva - His purpose is to ensure that each life he touches on this journey to building products gets truly served in their righteous progress. This is how he perceives the value of his products, not through the value of money.
The things he do in a day, enable him to stumble upon many teams with good ideas and a strong will to build further upon their ideas, through their skills, perhaps even a sound prototype, logistical and back end capabilities. Almost invariably, if he finds them good enough to ping his mind, he would have views for them that could help them make further progress. But these views are not mere theoretical views, these are strategies that need to be executed beyond the current capabilities of the prototype team. So, in order to help these teams at different stages of the startup life cycle we have allowed for such teams to engage with Nishchal directly. Although, this will be useful when startup teams are willing to stay focused on the strategy proposed by Nishchal, above all else.

To truly know him, we highly recommend that you see him in person, watch him dance and hear him talk. Be touched by his contagious smile, rare courage, all rounded genius and exceptional intensity. However, if you can’t get in touch with him in person, then simply read his first drafts of somethings that matter to him, written on his medium essays. Start reading about him from his personal bio in his own words and few photos, here, directed towards the entrepreneurs who seek him.
"Sometime I just want to - live a simple life, be in love, go to parties, drink and dance. Travel the mountains and oceans. Make my own furniture. Roll in green meadows. Watch the stars and satellites. Smoke pot and play sports. My alter ego however, at all times, wants to just build a great company that takes human culture, to freedom" - Nishchal Kesarwani.
80% of what he does in a day is — he builds Chattodo. It is his most
important company. He leads it from the front. Everything else he does, is how he handles
the requests of other startups or clients with that 20% of his time left in a day, very
effectively with this cultural system, called Preseed. Chattodo is a
product of which, Preseed is a cultural manifestation. They both run the same blood and
