The open for all group of entrepreneurs and likeminded people, Jharkhand Open Coffee Club (JOCC) conducted its online monthly meeting on Saturday on a virtual platform. Two young entrepreneurs from Ranchi and Ramgarh spoke about their start- ups echoing the Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s call of making an ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’.
Ranchi based Farming India Private Limited with field offices in Uttar Pradesh is an agriculture based start- up enabling farmers to transform farming into a profit oriented enterprise. The start- up provides modern technological support, effective consultation and marketing solution to farmers across India with a focus on cultivation of medicinal plants, hence enabling farmers to maximize their profits
Ajay Choudhary, Rao Samrat, Anand Ratna Maurya and Rohit Sharma are involved in running the start- up which was launched in February 2018 and now is associated with farmers across India.
“The current Covid- 19 situation has highlighted the importance of agriculture and its related services. Hence, I feel that more youth should get involved in this sector with zeal and enthusiasm as it supports the mission of Atmanirbhar Bharat and empowers the farmers of the country,” said Samrat (20).
Ramgarh based educational institution- ‘Success Redefined’ is aimed to enrich students with core concepts applicable in studies and also cope up with the current developments of the digital world. The institute offers courses in maths, science and English for students from class VI to class X while for students in class XI- XII it offers courses in all subjects of the commerce stream.
The institute was launched in October 2020 and as of now has as many as 20 students. Presently the courses are available in both online as well as offline mode.
“In order to cope with the changing world, the way of studying also needs to be redefined. While I was involved in teaching at a local school, I saw that parents and students were only bothered with marks rather than actual knowledge. This was what pushed me to launch my own academy so as to bring about a change in the mindset of the people,” said Abhishek Prasad (28), founder of Success Redefined.
Prasad is presently pursuing Chartered Accountancy and completed his graduation from Chotanagpur College, Ramgarh in 2015. His earlier venture foodohranchi was aimed to improve the mess service in the City but was shut down due to the Covid- 19 outbreak.
The virtual meeting ended on a high note with the members hoping to meet in person in the coming year.
