Rahul Kumar| What you lack, will make you run…

To boast a little, I’d say that right from the beginning I was always moved by entrepreneurship. Very early I realized, my persona is that of a job creator rather than a job seeker. During my college days, I started experimenting with different business ideas and learnt several lessons from them. I am influenced by the mindset and philosophy of business tycoons like Dhirubhai Ambani, Ratan Tata etc.

Coming from a middle-class family, I had to compromise on many things but I never wanted to compromise on my dreams. So, I started my first venture when I was in college. Although unable to scale it higher, ended up learning several lessons from it. 



After completing my Business Management degree, I started my current venture with the mission to improve the AQI level of the most polluted city, "Patna" by introducing several services like Landscaping, Terrace Gardening, etc. But after providing these services for a few years we have analysed the most crucial problem. This was an unorganized industry. So, we have done some changes in the business model and now we are attempting to unite this fragmented industry and envision a green future by creating a platform that allows people to access a range of different gardening services, expert consulting, transparent pricing, and smooth execution.


As a first-generation entrepreneur, the biggest challenge was to convince my parents of my chosen journey and I overcome this challenge through my actions and the monetary benefits incurred through my business. Eventually, my parents got satisfied that I am on the right track

 



Some of our achievements include receiving funds from Bihar Government under the  Bihar start-up policy and receiving grants from the central government. We are DIPP recognized start-up, and our Journey has been covered by inc42 magazine, startupTalky,  yourstory etc., and several other media houses like Telegraph, Hindustan, Prabhat Khabar, Dainik Bhaskar, and Dailyhunt as well.

For anybody willing to succeed in their venture, I’d share with them a dialogue from the movie Sultan- “Tumhe tab tak koi nhi hara Sakta, Jab tak tum khud se na haar jaao.” So, keep going and never give up because entrepreneurship is a marathon, not a sprint.
