Tell us a little about yourself
The world as we know today is being driven towards a technological era, where our lives are more connected to the virtual world than the real one.
Seeing this, at the age of 17, I started my own tech company (www.reevtech.in) but with a very little to no capital in my hand to start with.
So I started to do a lot, I mean a lot, of freelancing as a website and mobile app developer all from my bedroom. Few paid off well but few turned out to be fraud.
Slowly but steadily I was making some money, which is better than nothing. I invested all that I was earning into my startup and hired few of my classmates from an android development diploma course.
Over the course of time, it grew, we hired more programmers, sales and marketing people. One client led to another who recommended us to their connections, this is how we got more and more clients who started to work with us.
Right now, we’re a well established firm working with schools, colleges, hospitals, publishers, small to large scaled businesses and private individuals. We help them make their end to end software solution packages.
Apart from this, we do a lot of R&Ds making devices, applications, websites and many more based on new technologies.
This is how a 17 year old’s startup earns $1,00,000 per year.
How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
My father’s a software engineer and a businessman. Growing up, I’ve always seen him with his computer and have always had an interest in computers.
I haven’t been great with studies in school days but the only subject that I could do the best in Computer Application.

My forever interest in Computers kept me in stepping in this business at the age of 17, while I was still in school.

During my starting years, I had major failures on few projects, encountered frauds on my way. A lot of money problem, employee salary, rent, etc etc.. during my starting years.
Life isn’t fair all the time, but you have to stay strong, my father says.
Who has been your greatest inspiration?
My Father, though he has been my super hero for like ever but also he has always shown and given real life knowledge like no one.
What are some of the biggest mistakes you’ve made?
Believing everyone blindly. We, as a company, always need to have certain boundaries no matter what in our business life.

80% changes are that you might fail, but don’t give up. If you see potential in something then go for it, no matter what.
