I served at the organization for 3.5 years as a consultant and decided to quit. I found my path when I actively participated in ISB iDIYA competition, where various ideas and startups competed from around the world. My business case got selected in the top 25 out of 1800 entries. The experience was enough motivating for me to set up a tech company during early 2012. I have successfully lived the life of an entrepreneur, acquiring major skills and knowledge of business right from the start to a successful exit.

During my course as a founder, I have inherited world-class skills of ideation of product as well as services including market research, creating financial projections, e-commerce, business strategy, managing team, lead generation, client management, and delivering projects. I am quite confident about my skills in the above-mentioned categories.

During my start-up days, we focused on the new technology known as Near Field Communications. Gradually I was indulged in import/export and even digitally marketed the product. I worked for my startup full time without a salary for 3 years. While searching for investors we acquired a partner in UAE. We together set up the company in Dubai and the operations were managed by me personally for about two years. We together with partner incorporated a holding company in Singapore and I myself operated as a director in Dubai that availed me with international exposure along with organized management skills with diverse cultures from around the world. I understand the impact of decisions over the business and the essentiality of an appropriate mentor in growing a startup.

We successfully raised around $150,000 and had maintained a profitable business relationship with the Sharjah, Dubai, Al Ain and Qatar Governments with other clients. Moreover, I have maintained relationships with 20 international clients. We brought 0 revenue to quarter-million-dollar in two years.

During my time in Dubai, I had attended the global technology exhibition GITEX twice. The event helped me build potential relationships with international investors as well as witnessed various startup ideas and executions. This exhibition also enhanced my knowledge of organizing high-end events for startups and investors. The event also introduced me to a potential investor who was quite interested to buy my company. The offer was exciting, and I sold my startup and made a successful exit from the startup.”]Your entrepreneurial endeavors?[/vc_custom_heading][vc_custom_heading heading_semantic=”h4″ text_font=”font-762333″ text_size=”h4″ text_weight=”500″ sub_lead=”yes” sub_reduced=”yes” subheading=”My short-term goal is to deliver results across all segments of operations, entrepreneurship, and innovation at Entrepreneurs Network and the long-term goal is to make a meaningful difference to 100,000 entrepreneurs by May 2024.
