A common cause is what binds the Diabesmart Team - To help consumers embrace a healthier lifestyle through a Diabetic friendly product diet; with NO compromise on Taste.
The team consists of industry experts, veterans, and more importantly, passionate people. This wasn’t just about building a good business but drive change at scale. We wanted to create low-carb products for a country that is the diabetic capital of the world. Our committed team kept experimenting and refining the recipes until we could marry nutrition with tradition. Simple, but not easy.
The team focuses on innovation, by going back to the first principles of nutrition, dissecting Indian traditional recipes, and 'iterating' more than a hundred times for each product. And the result is a range of products that is authentically Indian, and yet nothing like what has been made already!
Some of our team members:
- Our Founder is also the Co-Founder of LeanScience, a boutique Diet and Fat Loss consulting firm that helps people become leaner through a low-carb lifestyle. The company counts some of the biggest names in the corporate world as its clients.
- Our Nutritionist has created customized eating plans, that are low on Carbs for hundreds of clients from different walks of life and time zones.
- Our Food Technologist is one of the most prolific creators of commercially successful Low-Carb products in the country
All of us saw clients (and occasionally ourselves) succumb and undo the discipline of an entire day or week in a single session. We decided to make what we wanted to eat, and suggest others to eat. Like many things, Diabesmart was also born out of necessity.
An engineer from IIT-Kharagpur, Sudarshan did his MBA from IIM-Bangalore. Since then, he has worked in many startups and founded the boutique Health consulting firm - LeanScience. As the CMO at Ola, Sudarshan helped make Ola a household name and grow from a few thousand rides a day to a million in less than 2 years.
Sudarshan has always had a strong interest in serving the country and transforming the way social services are administered to residents of India. A few years back, he quit his job and joined as a full-time volunteer in Nandan Nilekani’s team which was building the Aadhaar project. He wanted to contribute to a project, that he believes would transform the way social services are administered to residents of India.
He also worked with a team and built Road Mapp, an app that helps map the potholes on the roads and provides the data to the government for improving road quality.
An active sportsperson, he co-founded LeanScience in his most recent stint. LeanScience is an extremely successful boutique Diet and Fat Loss Consulting organization, that counts among the top corporate veterans of India as its clients.
He was also acutely aware of the need for healthy food in a market where nutrition was no more than a tagline. Thus, Diabesmart was the perfect intersection of his interest in health, desire to make an impact, and entrepreneurial drive.
