Manuj Aggarwal, Leading Expert In AI and Startups


Introduce yourself! Please tell us about you and your life, so we can get to know you better.

I was born in India and started my career at 15 working in a factory for $2 a day. One summer day, while at my lunch break, I was going through some business magazines. Reading the amazing success stories of some of those business tycoons ‒ gave me a unique inspiration. I wanted to do something better with my life. That's when I found my passion for technology, computers, and programming. And, since then, I've been helping many startups and large enterprises build unique technology making an impact on humanity, building software for education, healthcare, and many other industries. I have two boys and love to spend time with them. Besides that, I am a super curious Persian who loves to learn every day. So I read a lot. I am also deeply interested in other peoples’ stories. I host a top-rated podcast – Bootstrapping Your Dreams Show. I love having conversations with people about their life journeys. And I'm also the community leader for the startup community – Startup Vancouver. When I find time, I love traveling. I love visiting historical places and learning about our history and ancient wisdom. I'm particularly interested in Buddhism and have visited many monasteries. What is your business name and how do you help your clients?

My company name is TetraNoodle Technologies and we use Data Science and Artificial Intelligence to help our clients achieve exponential growth. We look at their operations, their sales, their marketing, or any other department. And we provide solutions that are backed by data so that they can make more objective decisions rather than rely on gut feel.

What kind of audience do you target your business towards?

We work with decision-makers (CEO, C suite executives, etc.) who possess the following values:

  • They have clear goals and objectives.

  • They are open to new ideas and perspectives.

  • They are willing to invest time, effort, and resources in their growth and development.

  • They have a positive attitude and outlook and are open to criticism.

What are your current goals for your business?

Data and Artificial Intelligence is going to change the world while changing the way we conduct our business. And our goal is to bring this power of data to as many companies as possible. Our immediate goals are to sign up 50 corporate clients and 200 individual clients in 2023. What would you like to achieve for yourself and your business in the future?

We want to use the power of Data and AI, to help millions of people grow exponentially in a way, and empower them to impact millions more in their own right so as to create a data revolution. We believe that data and AI have the key to bringing long-term prosperity and peace to this planet, and that is our long-term mission

Who inspires you to be the best that you can be?

You know who really gets me motivated? Elon Musk. The guy is just so inspiring. He's got these huge, crazy dreams and even though people might think he's nuts, he just goes for it, full throttle. He never gives up, no matter how much criticism he gets. It's pretty amazing if you ask me. What is your work inspired by?

My work is inspired by the lack of clarity and connection that humans have in this day and age. And I believe that connection, clarity, and relationships are the key to solving some of the biggest problems that we are facing today. And technology and artificial intelligence can truly make a difference in that in solving these problems. Tell us about your greatest career achievement so far.

I've had some pretty amazing opportunities in my life. I have come a long way from the dingy factoryfloor in India.


Today I am considered one of the leading experts in the field of AI. Recently I was awarded Brainz Global 500 award for my contributions in the filed of business, startups and AI.

I sit on the boards of several universities and companies, helping them design and implement the next generation of systems I've had the honor to share the stage with some pretty big names, like Muhammad Yunus, A Nobel Peace Prize winner and Ban-Ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the UN. And, I've also had the honor of interviewing some of the most well-known people in the world, like General David Petraeus, the former director of the CIA. The cherry on top has been getting to talk to and learn from Olympic champions, sports stars, and even some movie celebrities. It's definitely been a highlight of my career so far. If you could change one thing about your industry, what would it be and why?

I've noticed in the tech industry, It seems like everyone is just so focused on the engineering side of things, and not enough on the human skills and soft skills. And honestly, a lot of engineers don't even realize that just having technology for the sake of having technology is kind of pointless. The real power of technology is in how it can help people solve their problems, right? And that's why I wish more people in the industry would put more focus on things like communication, understanding people's needs, and creating a good user experience. I think if we put more emphasis on those aspects, we'll be able to create even more powerful and useful technology. Tell us about a pivotal moment in your life that brought you to where you are today.


There's been a couple of moments in my life that really stand out as being major turning points for me.


The first one was when I was flipping through some business magazines, and it just hit me that I wanted to do something more with my life. I remember thinking to myself 'this is it, this is what I want to do.'


But the second moment, the one that really changed me as a person, was when I became a parent. Holding my first child in my arms, it was like everything shifted.


I realized that life is so much bigger than just my own wants and needs and it drives me to work harder and be a better person.
