This girl from Udaipur is making it big as an entrepreneur! Curious? Read further to know what she does and how she is making it a success.
Prithvi Jain, a Chemical Engineer from MNIT is the young and promising entrepreneur from Udaipur. She was a part of the Entrepreneurship Cell during her college and worked as a Student Exchange Manager at AIESEC. After working with AIESEC, she realized that by having her own company, even a small success can make her very happy. This was the turning point of her life!
Doing something for the people had always been the prime motive for Prithvi and that is how she focused on her goal. Let us know about her startup- VerboLabs – what all it does and how it works.
The basic idea behind developing VerboLabs is to connect people from different parts of the world by breaking the language barrier. For instance, you want to watch a cookery show, but it is in French and so you cannot understand it. This is a problem for the viewer as well as the show creator that they are unable to reach a wider audience. VerboLabs breaks these boundaries by helping the content creators through subtitles and dubbing in different languages. This eight months old startup has already partnered with a lot of big media houses and e-learning companies from all over the world and is providing services to them.
Upon asking about the hurdles she faced, Prithvi told us, “The biggest hindrance to my business is the time difference. We work with clients and employees based in different countries and so, the time zone is something that we need to manage. We have to be available 24*7 to cater to the needs of different clients. Sometimes I feel sleep deprived as I have calls with the clients at 4am also. But, it is okay. You have to leave something to achieve something!”
Her motivation has always been her motto; which is working with determination, having a high learning spirit and delivering quality work at the designated time.
The beauty of being an entrepreneur is that you are your own boss. You get to work in your own environment. Entrepreneurship is booming all over the globe and people in India are starting to have their own ideas turn into a business.
Prithvi’s advice for the budding entrepreneurs
Giving an advice to aspiring entrepreneurs, she says, “The most important thing that I have learned is not to be dependent on one resource. You should always have a back-up. In a business, you have to be very careful about the image you build. Your work and attitude should reflect that your client is really important for you.”
Women have always been great leaders; our girl Prithvi also aspires to become one among the leading ladies.
In the words of a great Greek Writer Nikos Kazantzakis – ‘In order to succeed, we must first believe that we can’. This certainly holds true for every aspiring entrepreneur.
Prithvi is living up to her dream, and with this note, we wish her the best of luck for the future!
