IF YOU COULD GO BACK IN TIME A YEAR OR TWO, WHAT PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE YOURSELF?

Here nothing to say. Worked hard and developed software www.eurovoyages.eu (The concepts are very clearly depicted here. It is not a prototype). Stayed in Grenoble-France for some time during this process. Started during December’2019 with the best possible plan. Disaster struck in the form of coronavirus. Trying for recalibration.

WHAT PROBLEM DOES YOUR BUSINESS SOLVE?

Most travel websites give information either in air mode (Flights) or on ground mode (Train, Bus, Car and Cab) but there are no websites which will give comprehensive air plus train plus bus plus cab plus car-on-hire mode. We shall be providing this solution with the concept of FMC-LMC (First-Mile: Last-Mile Connectivity). It shall be one stop shop for travel that includes travel planning, travel bookings and budgeting.

WHAT IS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR BUSINESS?

Used to travel in Europe and found that they do not have proper final destination information for any place. Even if the information is there it is not integrated. Have colleagues and friends who have widely travelled in Europe and mentioned that in spite of having maximum tourists anywhere in the world, still they lack proper information. Have taken some baby-steps and that is already visible in our sites. Few things do not seem to have changed from the days of Minitel apart from Graphics.
Question may arise how do I know Minitel? Minitel was written in Pascal language and there was requirement to be rewritten in C++. I was selected for the same. During this process did take up some research work. My team used to work with SNCF France. Was involved with a France based organization for Internet agents (Cannot name due to NDA).

WHAT IS YOUR MAGIC SAUCE?

FMC-LMC (First Mile Connectivity – Last Mile Connectivity) and MMITS (Multi Model Information and Ticketing System). AI technology and Operations research techniques.
Delivering quality solutions at a lower cost since we are operating from a place called Bagalkot that is equidistant from Bangalore and Mumbai. Not far from Goa. It is an educational hub and easy to find graduates and postgraduates in computer science.

WHAT IS THE PLAN FOR THE NEXT 5 YEARS? WHAT DO YOU WANT TO ACHIEVE?

One of the premier organizations in travel related solution. To be premier organization in both Europe and India.

WHAT IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE YOU’VE FACED SO FAR?

Coronavirus is the biggest challenge. Entire plan went haywire. Now need to rebuild. Spent our own funds and now we are seeking the funds due the same reason.

HOW DO PEOPLE GET INVOLVED/BUY INTO YOUR VISION?

Anyone can be partners in progress for this unique proposition. It can be in the form of VC. Equity or Loan.
