What were the challenges you faced during the inception of your startup?

The journey of this start-up was full of challenges. At inception, we didn’t receive the company name registered from MCA. Later, we got the name registered as a Proprietorship Firm. few of the other challenges were:

 – Negative competition

 – Lack of awareness in customers 

 – Cartels

 – Criticism

 – Favoritism

 – Funds Management

 – Threats of Bad Debt by Big Industries in lack of Control Checks

 Besides all those challenges, we still had one thing which was our confidence and enthusiasm. We started our journey with dignity and determination subsiding and overcome all challenges.

Is your company bootstrapped or have you received funding, or do you plan on approaching investors?

The startup was started with a total of 2 lakhs of my savings and thus we started from scratch. Later, funding was arranged from friends and relatives. Other than limited funds, what we are rich in is our spirit to success, enthusiasm, and dedication. As a result, from the very first year, we had (3.5 months) turnover 7 figures (in Lakhs) and now we are running in 9 figures ++ (in crores).  

These figures itself are promising and reveal the story of hardships that we went through.  There can be multiple layers of development if a good investor joins hands with us whether it may be government bodies or private players. Those who want to grow and achieve success can come forward and join our hands. We welcome them with open arms.

As the founder/CEO, what is your opinion on the current landscape of startup culture in India?

It was a blessing to be an Indian. India itself is a land of diversity and diverse cultures, religions, castes, and creed. But a thing common is their love and support for the country. We feel proud to be among them. We find the government’s various initiatives and progressive actions, and programs for the development of skills very uplifting. Due to lack of awareness, employment opportunities and motivation for entrepreneurs along with misused communication mediums have proved to be a huge limitation.

One of the big reasons for such limitations is that the schemes are not getting materialized properly, as they are designed to be. Some efforts are needed to get it circulated to each and every struggling start-up in order to add their efforts to the GDP and the growth of the country. This will generate more employment and income opportunities with pride and dignity.    

 We like to thank our Hon’ble PM Shri Narendra Modi Ji, who enabled platforms and motivated young rising entrepreneurs like us to speak up their grievances. He awakened their dreams to start something new and passionate which is also bringing money, happiness, and prosperity to self as well as the nation as a whole. A special thanks to Modi Ji and his team.

According to you, how important is it to be updated with technology as per your industry sector?

Everyone has their own views on how they believe technology works for them. For a startup like us, Technology we believe is a tool that can help in speeding up our progress rates as well as accomplish our goals with utter satisfaction and progress. We always believe in 3 I’s (Imagination+Innovation+Implementation) and according to the same, we are going on and providing customized solutions for our customers using available resources, technology and using 3-I’s for polishing to deliver better outcomes. 

Hence, if we want to become the leader in the industry, we must keep ourselves on par with the latest technological trends. Technology is one of the main components of the Next Genx Biz Houses.
