Entrepreneurial alumnus find success in Bangalore

Raised in the city of Bangalore, alumnus Rahul Menon developed a love for sport at a young age.

He travelled to Loughborough to pursue his passion, graduating in 2016 with a MSc in Sports Management.

Rahul returned to India where in 2017, he was encouraged by his family of successful entrepreneurs to launch his business Match Point.

Match Point is a sports, event and talent management company based in Bangalore which conducts tournaments for schools, colleges and corporate teams. Professionals are also on hand to offer expert guidance and coaching to sporting amateurs and enthusiasts.

Rahul enjoyed building his brand but admits the last 24 months have been “exceptionally challenging”. He adds:

“I have understood how failure teaches you more than success ever can”.

Rahul is keen to expand his business and by the end of 2019, he has plans to manage one new cricket academy and a second badminton arena.

Good luck to Rahul in his future endeavours.
