Speaking to exchange4media, Kapadia said, “My contract with Lokmat got over on June 30 this year and I decided not to renew it because I wanted to turn entrepreneur again.”

At present, Kapadia owns a technology company called Whatuwant Solutions. And soon, he is going to start a consultancy firm called ideas@bharatkapadia.com. “This consultancy will be for brands and media and I will be consulting for media and marketing solutions,” he said.

Meanwhile, speaking on his stint with Lokmat, Kapadia said, “I had a very enriching experience with the Lokmat Group. The company has grown over time and is doing fantastic work. In fact, Lokmat is looking for an IPO and I wish it would have come when I was there. The company has got a lot of potential and vibrancy to grow.”

It may be recalled that in the beginning of the year 2011, Kapadia had stepped down from the post of Vice Chairman, MRUC, citing some personal reasons.
