Aniketh Jain is a na­tive of Ban­ga­lore. He did his BCA from Sri Ma­havir Jain Univer­sity, Ban­ga­lore, grad­u­at­ing in 2009. This was the time of eco­nomic cri­sis in the world at large. Hence, he and his friends were not sure about get­ting a job im­me­di­ately. He was stay­ing with his par­ents at that time. They sup­ported him a lot. In col­lege, he had de­vel­oped a col­lege project called Col­lege Man­age­ment Sys­tem. This was an sms and email so­lu­tion for man­ag­ing an in­sti­tu­tion. This gave him the idea to be­gin this busi­ness which is about giv­ing sms, email and other com­mu­ni­ca­tion man­age­ment sys­tems for in­sti­tu­tions and or­gan­i­sa­tions. He started with his friend Ashish, who is the CPO of the com­pany. He ini­tially be­gan with an in­vest­ment of one lakh ru­pees.

APPREHENSIONS ABOUT START­ING OUT ON HIS OWN BE­CAUSE THESE WERE TIMES OF ECO­NOMIC CRI­SIS

They had fear and ap­pre­hen­sion, but they were also con­fi­dent, be­cause they were get­ting or­ders. They were get­ting re­cov­ery for their in­vest­ment. Hence, this was a cal­cu­lated risk they were tak­ing. They in­vested about 4 lakhs of ru­pees on de­vel­op­ing so­lu­tions such as cloud com­mu­ni­ca­tions, sms, voice email and com­mu­ni­ca­tion email to cus­tomers etc.

In the next 2 years they aim to fur­ther in­crease their turnover and they fore­see be­com­ing among the top three so­lu­tions providers in this field.
