People mostly presume that going to college is all about getting a degree. Ofcourse, the degree part is important. That is the reason why courses exist in the first place. However, the education in college gives one perspective.
People many times tend to change the stream of their career. They tend to get involved in several activities. One of the crucial outcomes from college is the inception of several businesses.
Starting a business is similar to flying in turbulent weather while experiencing poor weather. There will be highs and lows, so you must be resolute and maintain your abdominal muscles. The highs can be extremely high, but the lows can be very low. Fly through the trip you set out on. College is the only place where someone could encounter these difficulties.
Many students present their ideas, launch businesses, gain a respectable clientele, and everything is well until they start college work. After graduation from college, a fiercely competitive world awaits. Parental pressure is the main factor that compels students to give up their sense of independence and apply for campus placements. In spite of all of this, here is a list of five campus startups that eventually grew into significant businesses:
From College to Billion-Dollar Success: Inspiring Indian Startups
Notemybook: Divyansh Saxena and Vikramank co-founded Notemybook while Saxena was a Computer Engineering student at the Vivekanand Education Society’s Institute of Technology in Mumbai. They wanted to move the idea further after seeing their seniors apply a similar concept while they were in college, so they created Notemybook. By giving the students a platform where they may sell or/and buy books at reasonable costs, they hope to reduce the cost of education. They already operate in ten Mumbai colleges and intend to spread to the state’s major cities.
Bewakoof brands: These folks believe that once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur. IIT Bombay civil graduates Prabkiran Singh and Siddharth Munot started printing large quantities of t-shirts for the campus festival, but they didn’t want to keep doing this because they weren’t getting enough orders. After finishing college, they strained their minds for new ideas, which is how Bewakoof Brands came to be. They base their creative brainstorming on the current trend in order to do credit to the humour industry. They began by receiving daily orders between 25,000 and 30,000 rupees.
Practo: Some real-world events serve as the seedbed for transformative business concepts. In order to get a second opinion on a procedure his father was about to have done, Shashank ND, who co-founded Practo with Abhinav Lal, sought one. He couldn’t find the needed doctor, so he created a platform so that patients could look for their doctors, learn more about them, and make appointments. Surathkal, which got its beginnings in the final year of engineering at the National Institute of Technology in Karnataka, now has expansion plans beyond India’s top cities to international markets and tier 2 cities. Today, Practo leads its industry in terms of market share.
TunePatrol: Artists can only be appreciated after the general audience hears their music. Four BITS alumni who continued the same idea established TunePatrol: Brijesh Bharadwaj, Saurabh Gupta, G. Karthik, and Pronoot. It provides musicians with a platform to display their work by allowing users to listen to their song and album. The founders split up after what had been a trip in the final year was sold to a group of music professionals.
Fabence: While pursuing a Bachelor of Commerce at Shri Ram College of Commerce, Anshul Gupta began to develop as an entrepreneur at a very young age. Fabence, a customised fashion discovery engine and shopping assistant, was founded by a fan of house music and football. Real-time shopping is simply superior to clicking “Buy Now” and adding items to shopping carts. By allowing you to customise the things you purchase, Fabence seeks to close this gap. It makes it easier for a user to choose which product to buy by adopting and incorporating different algorithms and technologies.
