Natty Niños is a one stop store that offers multiple baby and kid related services. Founded by Nipun Jain in 2014 after he didn’t score as well as he intended to in CAT 2013, Natty Niños was inspired after a depressed breakdown caused due to the disheartened CAT results. Naturally, the entrepreneur was fearful and anxious about his future until he came across the kids’ salon and event industry. Nipun says, “I found out that the concept of a kids’ salon and event planning working really well in foreign countries, and also that there was nothing like this operating in a city like Delhi at that time.” This was the seed that led to the inception of the organization that was fully functional and running on May 2nd, 2014.

The weight of the world on his shoulders
Born in Delhi to a rich business class family, one may think that Nipun’s life was a cake-walk. However, things haven’t been the same after a fire tragedy struck his dad’s business that caused the entrepreneur to lose his father and three other male members in his family. To make things worse, the fire destroyed loads of money as well which burnt the big family business down to the ground. And since there was no one else to take over the business, Nipun’s family had to sell everything at scrap value while simultaneously watching the family get destroyed. All the hope was placed on Nipun at that point and he says, “My family counted on me and envisioned that one day I will bring back the happiness to the family. And I owe it all to the women who raised me to become the man that I am now.”

Life is all about choices
After the tragedy, his family was left with limited funds. Nipun knew that starting a venture using the limited funds that they had would be risky and challenging. The entrepreneur was also determined to do his MBA which again was a fund crunching endeavor. The entrepreneur says, “When I finally thought of starting Natty Niños, my mother gave me an option of either using the last bit of our savings to pursue my MBA or use it to start my new venture. I chose to start my venture and I am excited that I took that decision.” It’s fair to say that Nipun is on the way to accomplishing himself to be a great business person, and we are sure that he had brought back the happiness that his family was seeking for after the disaster. He now looks forward to keep providing quality services to all their clients and is hopeful about partnering with companies that cater to the kids’ sector also.
