"This is a huge success for us, and the credit goes to my team," says Abhishek.
He adds, "Just like this country needs an army for protection, the economy needs entrepreneurs."
But the journey to his startup story was not easy for him. Abhishek Jha went through a tragedy when he was preparing for NDA. He drowned while swimming due to which he got a problem in one ear. Abhishek had no idea what was coming next. The doctors clearly said that he would not be able to clear his physical exam.
The one thing he wanted from all his heart was being in defence. And here, he had no control over the situation. He could not be there and it was not in his control.
But his spirit to do something never let him down.
He didn't give up and came up with this idea to create his academy and prepare thousands of defence aspirants.
He created a platform through which many aspirants are now able to fulfil the dream, he could not fulfil and this gives him immense happiness.
CollarCamp's startup story was established in 2017 by entrepreneurs-parents- husband-wife Capt. Shashank & Priyanka Dake Sharma. One fine day, whilst sailing during one of the duty trips on the ship, they were amazed by the neatness and discipline with which the whole crew of the ship co-existed within the minimum amount of space for the maximum amount of time considering one can be on the ship for months altogether.
Just as a ship sails smoothly overlooking every need of its officers, managers and crew, CollarCamp thus was created to be a homely stay filled with motherly care for all its guests. And now with its various laterals for Co-Living, Co-Studying/ Working & Co-Sharing as an effort to create a community of like-minded individuals, CollarCamp hopes to bring the care a mighty and motherly ship provides to all her on-board children for a simplified living!
Shraddha Verma , Co-Founder of Fuzia, was 11 years old when she witnessed the concept of Fuzia while studying at Palo Alto High School, California. This was the starting of her startup story.
She always loved creative writing as a child. She used to write creative endings of books when she wasn't satisfied with their ending. She loved writing stories, so with a family friend's help, she wrote a book called 'Runaway Twins.' She thought of the plot mostly by herself, just using her imagination. It was about a pair of twins who solve a family mystery to help save their family. Later, reading her book, a 6-year-old girl came up to her with utmost exhilaration to tell Shraddha that she inspired her to write a book and made her realize her true calling. The incident seeded so deep in Shraddha and made her experience the potential of inspiration and after that, she decided to influence all the girls and women around the world to get inspired by each other. Isn't her startup story inspiring? Thus, in 2012 she started Fuzia as a Writing club, a platform meant for school girls to share their writings and essays.
Around half the Indian population is engaged in agriculture and allied industries, yet their contribution to the GDP is only 14 percent.
Preliminary findings of a survey of more than 1,000 agricultural households across 12 Indian states show that 60% of those who did harvest reported a yield loss, and 1/10th of them could not harvest their crop in the past months due to the pandemic. More than half (56%) of the farmers said that the lockdown had impacted their ability to prepare for the upcoming sowing season. The survey has found a "robust association between food insecurity & farm size, with landless farmers ten times more likely to skip a meal in the past month compared to large farmers."
In between all this Thane-based Rukart technologies objective is to make farming economical and environmentally sustainable for a marginal farmer. RuKart design, develop and disseminate affordable, recurring cost-free, robust and scalable products for the marginal farmer market to reduce the input cost and mitigate the risk in cultivation.
This project was initiated in IIT Bombay.
Engineer Ni Cha
Ronak is an Ahmedabadi and the founder of "Engineer Ni Cha." For him, Chai (Tea) is love. "The secret recipe to my tea is love," Ronak says.
Ronak graduated as an engineer in 2015.
Currently, he lives with his parents and his younger sister. His father also runs a tea shop. Before Ronak started his tea business, he had a job that paid him a mere of Rs7000 per month.
He knew that this amount was not enough to run his family. He then decided to do something of his own and began a tea stall.
Currently, they are doing great. People from all across India come to them to taste their tea.
On asking Ronak, what challenges he had to go through, he says, "being an engineer, people always used to say that why was I into tea selling or why did I spend on engineering when I had to sell tea but I didn't listen to anyone and focussed on my passion, my love for chai(tea). Today, the same people appreciate me."
Also, he said that he is not alone in this business as his cousin brother and sister work with him too. "This brings extra responsibilities on my shoulders to take care of them and make sure they are not demotivated. If this business fails, then it wouldn't be just me but they will have to go through it all too." Ronak confirms.
Apart from all this, another challenge they tackle every day is, carrying the entire stall setup with them to Subhash Bridge, early in the morning then taking it again back with them on a two-wheeler.
Even after all these, their spirit never dies.
He says with a big smile on his face that his goal is to serve the love of "Engineer Ni Cha" to each and every person of India.
Ronak believes that every honest work is worth appreciating. There is no point sitting at home waiting to get a job and it is better to start something on your own even if it is small and not what everyone would term as a fancy business proposal.
I hope the above startup stories must have inspired you.
