Being one of the heirs to a large business family comes with an open passport for 'lateral' placement in India Inc. But Kavin Bharti Mittal, one of the twin sons of Bharti group chief Sunil Bharti Mittal, had his first independent stint as a businessman with his own startup AppSpark, founded when he was in the final leg of completing Electronics and Electrical Engineering with Management degree from Imperial College, London.

The 26-year old who interned across a mix of cool places like Formula One team McLaren Racing and Google besides spending some time as an analyst at Goldman Sachs, is now head of strategy and product development at Bharti SoftBank (BSB), the group's privately held joint venture with Japan's SoftBank.
