IITian funda: Quit jobs and ‘start-up’

New Delhi: IITians Prasoon Gupta, Manish Goyal, Badal Goel and Anil Nagar have one common trait besides graduating from the premiere institute. They resigned from their lucrative jobs to start a business on their own. Their endeavor proves that India is gradually graduating into a ‘start-up nation’.

IIT Roorkee alumni Prasoon Gupta filed his resignation in February 2014, and launched a quick service restaurant, Sattviko. The venture which is influenced by sattvik and yoga philosophy became a runaway success.

In no time, Sattviko outlets developed a staggering customer base who immediately became an avid fan of the food and beverages of the eatery.

“Our customers love and support also helped us win the ‘Best Debutant Restaurant Chain’ Award in December 2014”, said Gupta.

FRSH has enthralled its customers by providing doorstep services. It caught the fantasies of people by serving freshly sandwiches prepared salads and sandwiches. The founder, Badal Goel, another IITian ,  targeted those who wanted a break from the junk foods.

Founded in 2014 in Gurgaon, FRSH spread its wings at various locations across Delhi and Noida. One of the major customer bases of the company is corporate offices in Gurgaon. FRSH is also considering to initiate services in metro stations, apartment clusters and schools.

In November 2013, another IIT Bombay graduate Manish Goyal quit his high profile job to start Foodies Compass.

“As a backpacker and traveller, there was always this problem of what to order due to lack of visual and credible sources. So, we introduced this website and app where people can see visuals of food before they order,” said Goyal.

Foodies Compass, provides menus with pictures of food of more than 150 restaurants in Gurgaon, Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Kolkata, Chennai, Hyderabad and Ahmedabad. In very quick time it became one of the most visited food-based websites of India.

Yet another graduate from an IIT (IIT BHU), Anil Nagar, left his job at Cognizant Technology Solutions to set up his dream project Career Power in April 2010.

Career Power has become a reputed institution that imparts training to students for cracking entrance exams for getting jobs in the banking and service sector. Reportedly, around 85,000 aspirants have managed to get a job by studying in Career Power. He also launched a website in April 2012, bankersadda.com. The website is considered to be one of the most dependable websites among job aspirants.

With an increasing number of youngsters starting their own ventures, an overall development of India is inevitable as this would generate a lot of job opportunities besides strengthening the economy of the country.
