No matter what people say to you, don’t lose your hope.”
Let me introduce you – Mr. Rohit Kumawat, a 26-year-old entrepreneur. At 20, he showed his interest in doing business and entrepreneurship. Because of which, he focused on building an empire. Since then he never looked back and started working hard for his goal. He laid the foundation of his venture in a three-tier city in Rajasthan.
He shared, “I had always dreamed of owning a company and to help people with all the skills I learned during my graduation days. I chose a less-traveled route to achieve my dreams. It was difficult for me to choose entrepreneurship as a career when all my friends were preparing for a corporate job. Only ‘burning desire’ inside me gave a powerful and independent way to start what I love to do. “
Today, Rohit Kumawat is the founder and managing director of Appenics Technologies Pvt. Ltd, a globally certified service company with a team of over 30+ skilled and experienced members. Appenics is an IT consulting and service company that provides cost-effective solutions to small and medium-sized businesses across the globe.
Also, his company believes in creating a new technology ecosystem to help enterprises grow .
A Little Introduction of Entrepreneur
Rohit Kumawat holds a bachelor’s degree in Electrical Engineering from Maharishi Arvind Institute of Engineering and Technology, Jaipur. He started Appenics three years ago from his home after graduation. He never worked for any corporate. As he had started with no experience and investments. He doesn’t have any financial backup.
Still, he never thought of working for other dreams. Rohit says, “I learned some technologies and business skills during my college days. I wanted to set up an IT firm where every team member had the freedom to help their clients, think and build limitless possibilities for others.”
A Start with Nothing – Appenics Technologies
Rohit founded Appenics Technologies Pvt with no money and no experience in 2015. He only thought about his startup and started with a business plan to illustrate three things: why he wanted to work on the idea? How his company would benefit other people and become a profitable venture within three years? What resources it will require achieving the prior mission?
Rohit also mentioned, ” It was a turning point in my life and career. I had enthusiasm and curiosity to learn about technology. I always believe in myself. Also, I had no working experience. Because of that, I had faced many obstacles while setting you my startup. The main pain point was to get more clients and generate revenue to sustain the business. At one point, I used to deal with a high stress. But every day, before getting up from the bed, I remind myself to keep going no matter what.”
He began this entrepreneurial journey from a small basement of his friend’s house. Within one year, Appenics Technologies moved to an office with a seating of 10 members with over 50 clients.
Appenics offers the scalable and result-oriented IT solutions to diverse industries. With an extensive, intelligent system, our strong team builds projects from scratch, helps with consultation, and also solves the complex technology snags. Our only vision is to help our clients succeed by connecting them with our IT experts.
Success Come only with hard work, customer-centric approach and organized teamwork. Rohit explained the company.
This 3-year-old IT startup has two revenue models to earn profit and manage in-house investments on products, marketing and sales. Rohit illustrated these two models to our team in brief.
He said, ” First, we build a strategic partnership with other companies and freelancers on a percentage-based model. Here, profits shared mutually. The second revenue model pursues the web and mobile application development process from concept to delivery. Under this, we manage the client’s products and tools and handle the technical complications as an in-house tech team. “
Difficult Roads often lead to Beautiful Destinations
There was no external support. But Rohit never backs down to make his startup into a successful private limited company. He used the bootstrapping model with the help of his elder brother.
Last year, he registered Appenics Technologies under the Companies Act, 2013, as a private limited company. All 30 team members of the company have completed almost 500+ projects of happy clients and developed almost 200+ mobile applications for product-based companies. Appenics has also earned notable associations and partnerships from Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Acquia, NASSCOM, and more. Rohit used to handle everything like sales, marketing, lead generation and the development of products in the initial phase of startup.
After six months of his company, he hired freelance developers for web and mobile applications developments. Now, there’s a batch of developers, designers, marketers, and HR. His company values the skills of an individual and put a lot of efforts to provide benefit both employees and business.
He also said,” Most of the weeks spent at the office, used to sleep there due to a lot of work pressure. I usually come home late at night and worked countless hours until I hired a team of skilled experts. At the initial phase, no one wanted to work for my company and had to struggle with the workload. I have learned that Success don’t come easy, there is no shortcut to get it.”
Think Big, Dream Big
Rohit has a passion and dedication to take full responsibility for creating more technical opportunities for startups and budding entrepreneurs.
“Being an entrepreneur is a challenge that let you prove yourself and work hard but also smart on your ambitions. It gives a chance to become an influencer for future generations to encourage them to do what they love,” Rohit says.
He also mentioned that when you try hard to do something your own, that time you reach an extraordinary level of yourself. It is possible to ‘Think big, Dream big’ and achieve daily. That’s why, always allow yourself to take baby steps towards your aim and learn new things even if you are facing failures.
At present, Appenics works for different industry segments and serving in 10+ countries for web, software and mobile app product or tool development. He also concluded by telling the future goals of Appenics Technologies.
” In 2020, we will launch our two new products based on AI technology. Also, our company’s focus is to serve a wide range of industries in countries like the US, China, UK, Canada, and Australia. We are proud to be one of the most trusted technology partners among industry leaders.”
