2014 has been the year where we found our start up journey all about perseverance and passion. There have been days where we felt at the top of the world and there were days where nothing seemed to work. We faced issues with hiring, website development, hosting server and many other petty office issues like the Internet connectivity, telephone, water supply, etc 🙂
But, eventually “going” got only better with the wonderful team, website development and the amazing network. We especially enjoyed the attention from the users of IndiaBizForSale.com. We have been receiving loads of praise and positive feedback from across the country and abroad. The testimonials we received from our clients who successfully sold (although few decided not going forward selling their business after receiving offers) and many who have managed to come across serious inquiries which otherwise would not have come. We believe in the cycle of doing good with good intent and this year has proved our belief.We have received remarkable support from CIIE, eChai, MICA, CII, GCCI, Economic Times, DNA, Divya Bhaskar, VCCircle, Money Control, Microsoft Azure, various business Bloggers, etc.
This year we had presented our business concept at IIM Ahmedabad, Gardi Engineering college – Rajkot, Venture studio Ahmedabad, MICA incubator, IDEAPAD at CIIE. We exhibited at Gujarat Manufacturing Show 2014, Rajkot Big Show 2014, E-tailing Conclave 2014 Ahmedabad and now gearing up to exhibit at the big summit Vibrant Gujarat 2015. We also attended events and workshop held by IIM Ahmedabad, VCCircle, LetsVenture, visited offices of Snapdeal, Infibeam, TOI, DNA, MoneyControl, IL&FS, Everstone, etc. The learning has been continuous and so has been the support from professionals and companies we interacted with.
Not only we received number of requests and offers from companies and individuals to get associated with IndiaBizForSale.com but had two initial offers on investment into our business.
Apart from our users who want to Exit from the business or Enter into business, we learned that the services we provide possess lot of value for mid-size companies abroad who are looking to enter into India market via acquisition/JV. We learnt that financial institutions (NBFCs, Banks), chartered accountants, business advisory firms, event management companies are also interested in partnering with us for financial needs of users of IndiaBizForSale.com. We have now worked on the delivery model for these interests, which will open different revenue streams for the company apart from our nominal listing charges for our Premium clients.
We are upbeat about 2015 – surely we will advance further in our journey, as we have confidence and support from the market along with the right team in place. We have a right product mix and we believe the timing is perfectly right. And above allour perseverance and our continual passion will flourish the business in 2015, this year is ours to make.
We thank you for believing in us, stay the same awesome you have been always !
Always Wishing Best,
Bhavin Bhagat & Priya Bhagat
