I started my educational career with an Engineering background. At the end of the graduation days, I founded my first startup named “12nuit”.
After 5-6 years, I started my second startup, “Na Dhukan,” which only deals with Made In India products. I also started my NGO service, which is related to free Lawyer services to needy people, named “Justice For Every.”
In view of Education reforms, I started an Online Social Media based platform named “V Bridge U.” This all is under “OS Groups” I am operating from both Bangalore and Andhra Pradesh. I completed my Master’s degree also.

🇮🇳 What do you consider are the main strengths of operating your business in India and the specific state you are in over other states in India?
Talented people around every edge of the street are the main strength. Everyone in the world knows that talent is not lacking at any place; only the lacking thing is they are not getting enough limelight. That I want to give to all.
🇮🇳 What (if any) are some weaknesses of operating your business within India and your state?
No weakness. When you feel it is a weakness, then you are not viable for the business. Don’t accept your weakness or any place; also make it the strength that only gives you success
🇮🇳 If you could operate your business in another state in India rather than the State you are in, which state would it be and why?
Delhi or Mumbai, which reflects the total Indian market. But what I feel is it’s not about place; it’s about how we do and what we do.

It is my exact strength because an incredibly diverse population only gives the main spot of business, which reflects sales.
