What made you start your startup and what problem does it solve?

Being a college student we started as a part-time business to make pocket money as a franchise of mobile service to one of the leading Mobile retail chain outlet in Karnataka in 2012 while persuing our 2nd-year graduation

We managed to grow within 3 years journey as young entrepreneurs we managed to have 7 franchise outlets of mobile service across Bangalore with a turnover of 25 lakhs.

Fall of business: the agreement to run a business was just for 3 years and it was the time we were in final year and it was tough to choose education or continue as an entrepreneur.

In 2016 the contract agreement of franchise got over and we were left with nothing as we couldn’t focus on getting placed in Some job. As we had some backlogs which we need to rewrite the exam and look for a job.

None of us got support from family to start a business. As Indian parents always believed in education getting placed in some MNC with a fixed salary this was a tough time to decide on our future. We somehow clear our paper and started our career in sales and marketing few months and again the fire of being entrepreneurs burnt us inside and started our own venture Navadi in 2016.

 As a startup founder, what are you paranoid about? What keeps you awake at night?

As a startup founder, the main paranoid you can say that am emotionally attached to my baby i.e my startup. Me keeping awake is always thinking emotionally the new strategy to overcome the problem to customer with new and modern technologies and obvious plan of action to be different in market and explore our brand nationally

 

 

 

 As a startup founder, what are you paranoid about? What keeps you awake at night?
At this point we are not competing with the local vendor as the solutions and service we are providing is next level , but they seems to be the biggest competitor as they operate in the very nominal way and make big out it basically there are very less company with this segment of business as registered Pvt Ltd company. Like. Just like new, yantra buzzme etc.
