Continuous humiliation from classmates and a passion to do something that would make him stand apart, brought final-year engineering student Sanjay Kumar (21) from Madhya Pradesh to launch his own IT company last year. Spare a few minutes to read his inspiring story. ..
Humiliation paved the path
Sanjay was born in a middle class family in a village named Jhawal in the district of Mandsaur of Madhya Pradesh. Being an academically bright student, he cracked the entrance exam and came to Ujjain to pursue engineering in Computer Science. This was a turning point in his career. “As I came from a Hindi-medium background my classmates ridiculed me for my accent and inability to explain things properly. I felt extremely humiliated in front of all. Then, I thought that the only way to heal my wounds was to do something different from my entire class,” told Sanjay to Chalgenius.
Sanjay started freelancing from second-year itself and earned Rs. 350 and 5-star feedback on these projects. The appreciation encouraged him to learn about new computer technologies. Slowly he got a chance to work on some foreign projects. Soon the volume of work became so large that he started forming a team to do the work together. The projects that they delivered were highly appreciated by the customers. The success of these projects motivated Sanjay to come up with his own IT company. Thus, he launched his own IT company “Techsoftor Pvt. Ltd” from his home 10 months back and it was registered on 2 August 2020.
The company offers a variety of IT services like Web Development, Mobile App Development, Social Media Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Graphic Design, CRM & ERP and others. Currently, he has more than 10 members in his team including the director and Ceo. They have successfully completed more than 50 projects in India, USA, UK, Dubai, and Canada.
Training the villagers in technology
Sanjay wants to develop his village with the help of technology. “As a first step towards this development, we started our company from the village. We will soon start an initiative to train people on digital marketing. After which, we will absorb them in our company. Along with this, the training would improve their employability. Our village is technologically backward and people do not have knowledge about computers and the digital world. Youths have a very less scope of employment here. I want to address this problem,” explained Sanjay. Along with this, Sanjay is also planning to come up with other means to develop his village through technology.
Sincerity makes Techsoftor special
“Our unique selling point (USP) is sincerity. We work day and night to make our customer happy. Infact customer satisfaction comes first. We believe that our customers will always come back to us for availing our services,” he said.
Efforts are on to start Techsoftor’s branch office in Canada and more such offices would be launched in the next one year. Sanjay plans to expand the company further and start offering a few more services.
