What is your target market and how large is it?

No matter whether you are a student, engineer, doctor, cricketer, professor, lawyers, if you love and think of technology, you are one of us. We are all around you.

How did you get started and why this type of business?

There is no shortage of talent in our country, but shortage of electronic devices or means of building them is always an unresolved problem. That demoralizes thousands of enthusiastic individuals. If this shortcoming could be managed somehow, the practice of research shall be strengthened  and we believed that this task will not be so tough.

From this motivation, we took the responsibility of enduring all  hazards faced in case of collecting electronic devices, and time has come to claim our success to that commitment. Now, you can buy any device which were almost impossible for you to attain just a few days ago.

Are there any other such businesses? If so, what sets you apart from the rest?

Our endeavors are not confined within selling and reaching electronics only, we offer 360 degree support to them. Essential tutorials on diversified projects according to the demand of the researchers, Seminars, workshops, Customized PCB printing, Virtual Market Place through which they can sell their own module all are to nourish their inner potentialities.

We dream of building up a large pool of skilled individuals who will flourish our country through the innovation of unforeseen electronic devices and also of acquainting people with the wonderful world of embedded electronics.

What are some milestones or targets you hope to achieve within 6 months-a year?

Our ultimate vision is to provide access to our of the enthusiastic researchers, with necessary devices and make electronics reach not just them but anyone looking for it.

What are some obstacles you faced along the way?

“People always keep chasing rainbows”. Our brilliant, meritorious and talented engineers are great disciples of this ad age, leaving this country because of lack of career opportunity which causes acute brain drain in Bangladesh. For every nation brain drain is highly unwelcomed phenomenon and to avoid this human capital flight providing essential career growth platform has no alternative. This is a universal responsibility that lies to every citizen of the country, not only to selective few (e.g. Government, NGO). The dying collective progress of Bangladesh again can breathe only when this ceaseless impediment can be uprooted and geniuss will be nourished within the fence. This collective effort will guide Bangladesh towards the zenith of success.

What is one advice you’d give to a budding startup entrepreneur?

Explore, innovate. Do what you are, do what you love. The rest will fall in place.
