DQ Channels - - Success Story - KHUSHI SINGH/( ra­jbala@cy­ber­me­

Start­ing a busi­ness is, by its very na­ture, a chal­leng­ing en­deavor, and achiev­ing en­tre­pre­neur­ial suc­cess un­der any cir­cum­stances is a great ac­com­plish­ment. But some startup founders have more ob­sta­cles to over­come than ap­ply­ing for a bank loan, learn­ing how to mar­ket a prod­uct, fi­nan­cial is­sue, etc but some of them de­fied in­cred­i­ble per­sonal odds — fi­nan­cial is­sue etc.- to start their com­pa­nies and make struc­ture things in a bet­ter way.

Prit­pal Singh Bal­har, owner of Skynet com­put­ers So­lu­tions nar­rated the jour­ney he cov­ered to DQ Chan­nels.


Like most en­trepreneurs, Prit­pal’s child­hood strongly in­flu­enced his views on pur­su­ing op­por­tu­nity —but not in the way one might ex­pect. Be­ing a Del­hite he was born and brought up in Delhi the heart of the coun­try. Prit­pal com­pleted his grad­u­a­tion from Delhi Univer­sity in Hons. (Cor­re­spon­dence) and Com­puter course from GNIT which he stud­ied par­al­lel. Fi­nan­cial con­di­tions failed to beat his suc­cess.

Af­ter pass­ing his higher stud­ies strug­gling in ev­ery school sub­ject but math, Prit­pal joined DSL where he gained ex­pe­ri­ence for 3 yrs. Af­ter that he served in MNC called V Cus­tomers Ser­vices where his cal­iber pro­moted him to cus­tomer care ex­ec­u­tive to team leader with good salary. For sev­eral years, he bounced around among dif­fer­ent jobs un­til he landed a where his wife no­ticed that he can very well han­dle the firm if ran by him­self.

“I don’t have that strong fi­nan­cial back­ground where I can start some ven­ture and jump into boom­ing com­puter in­dus­try,” Prit­pal said. “I got hired at Aero PC net­work where my wife fidured out area and pas­sion for my com­puter love.”

“Imag­ine start­ing and grow­ing a suc­cess­ful busi­ness, but how to groom it with­out funds and I must say fam­ily is beau­ti­ful thing and they were the one who helped me in ar­rang­ing funds and ini­ti­at­ing the jour­ney to busi­ness, to earn, to grow and to live a life worth liv­ing.” He added.

“Ini­tially, I started ven­ture in the name of Skynet Com­put­ers So­lu­tions in 2010

I had gone through the think­ing of lack of funds but the mo­ti­va­tion I re­ceived from my ex­pe­ri­ence and my fam­ily turned me in man earn­ing good num­bers

with over two three employees and good qual­ity stock of ac­ces­sories such as key­boards, mouse and other pe­riph­er­als, nar­rated he.

“I had gone through the think­ing of lack of funds but the mo­ti­va­tion I re­ceived from my ex­pe­ri­ence and my fam­ily turned me in man earn­ing good num­bers. Fam­ily, friends and sev­eral an­gles in my life helped me to de­velop the vi­sion to over­come and jump into the boom­ing in­dus­try.”


Start­ing with sell­ing of pe­riph­er­als prod­uct Skynet deals into Servers, stor­age, Net­work­ing, etc. with brand cor­po­rate s such as Tata Tele Ser­vices. Skynet is au­tho­rized Part­ner for HP. Mi­crosoft, IBM and APC. Prit­pal has also rec­og­nized for his qual­ity ser­vice by var­i­ous ven­dors asSu­per Achiever.


One should never give up and do not deny chal­lenges what­ever is sit­u­a­tion as best is al­ways out of worst Prit­pal be­lieves.

“Don’t give up, don’t give in — just get back up and start re­build­ing your life as quickly as pos­si­ble,” he said. “If you’re hav­ing a bad day, take your right hand and put it across your heart. If it’s still beat­ing, then be grate­ful and make it hap­pen.”


Gen­er­ate profit ori­ented busi­ness Strate­gic Plan­ning for growth. Be­lieve in your­self and stay con­fi­dent. Make your goals clear and stay fo­cused.


Pr­ti­pal is look­ing for­ward to take Skynet one step ahead each day by adding qual­ity per­for­mance and build­ing good re­la­tion­ships with cus­tomers.
