Kapil is an entrepreneurial, MIT-trained supply chain expert with a passion for the outdoors and public health. In his supply chain consulting career, Kapil focused on preventing counterfeiting of medicines and advised clients such as Pfizer and Eli Lilly on methods to keep pharmaceutical supply chains safe.
In 2011, Kapil joined Clinton Foundation and worked with Government of Liberia, West Africa on building up their national drug supply chain to improve access to life saving medicines across the country.
An avid hiker, Kapil was unable to find gear that performed in the hot and humid tropics of his native Himalayas or the West African forests. So, he created Mishmi Takin, a company committed to designing high performance gear for climatic conditions often overlooked by major brands.
Kapil has run six marathons to date. He loves hiking in the White Mountains of New Hampshire and mixing with the villagers in West Africa. He lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife and young daughter.
Kapil holds a Bachelors in Civil & Environmental Eng. from Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and a Masters in Supply Chain Management from Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA.
