At some point in the life, every one dreams of being a successful entrepreneur and so do I. Being an entrepreneur is not just about running a business and earning profits, it is about building something that will disrupt and change things around you. It is not just about money, it is about building a better future for your upcoming generation. And this can only be done by understanding the gap between the demands & supply in a society and closing that gap with the right products.
My Dream Business:
Internet is the future of communication. Although it has become a crucial part of many people around the world but still 2/3rd of the world’s population has no access to internet. And out of those who have the access, only 1/5th are using on regular basis. And there lies an opportunity. According to various surveys, by 2025, developing countries around the world will account for more than half of the world wide web economy. So, this is the right time to work on technologies that will shape the internet of tomorrow.
We, three friends, want to start a “Web and Mobile Development Company“. With the diverse background of each of us, it is great combination to fill the different roles in our new company.
Some of the services we would be providing:
- Website Development
- Mobile Applications(Windows, Android, iOS, Blackberry, Nokia, etc.) Development
- Internet Marketing Consultancy(Social Media, SEO, SEM), etc.
Another market that is going to evolve and completely change the dynamics of communication is Mobile space. From social interactions to purchasing products, customers are moving their entire life to mobile space. Even if your main business is on the web, you can’t ignore the mobile strategy. In some countries, android activations are more than the babies born in a day. Even if you compare the time spent on web and mobile, mobile leads the space here also.
So, apart from providing consultancy and development services to others, another aspect of our business would be to build mobile applications to make things better around us. Especially in India, popular mobile applications are only limited to Social networking or messenger apps, so there lies an big opportunity to build apps in the field of Education, Shopping, and business.
