Episode 86 – Entrepreneur Parent – Nikhil Kapur – Atmantan

There are a couple of things that we have noticed over the past year of speaking to guest as part of Entrepreneur Parent. They pay a dual role, the first of an enterprising entrepreneur and second of a loving parent. On this episode, our guest plays both roles effortlessly while also being an athlete.

Meet Nikhil Kapur, a five time participant in The IRONMAN Triathlon – the most challenging triathlon in the world. Nikhil is the Founder-Director of Atmantan Wellness Centre, an integrated wellness destination, nestled in the foothills of Mulshi, a district in Maharashtra, India. He is also a father who is actively looking at inculcating fitness as part of his 13 year old son’s upbringing.

Nikhil has an unrelenting passion when it comes to wellness and fitness, which is evident when he spoke about his experience training for The Ironman Triathlon. Growing up as an army kid discipline was one of the factors that played an important role in his life.

Nikhil talks about how influential his dad was, “never a push but a soft nudge” when it came to sports and fitness. As a parent he borrows some of his dad’s character defining traits and implements them on his son today.

Later in the episode Nikhil told us how we went about setting up Atmantan Wellness Centre along with his wife. They were very clear about their entrepreneurial goals and how they wanted to convert their passion into an enterprise and raise the level of wellness and well-being for like-minded people.
