Tell us a little about yourself
This is Ishan Gupta, CEO at RipenApps. Brought up in a family business background, I didn’t choose to continue our family business.
I persuaded my career in engineering and stepped into the IT industry. But like everybody said, “business in blood”, I also chose to ignite an IT business and utilize my skills and vision to cater to the world with tailor-made IT solutions.
Please tell us a little about your entrepreneurial journey
Ishan Gupta: Well, I started my career a decade ago as a Software developer with a recognized firm and worked with a few renowned companies like Times of India.
Working with such big giants as a technical person, I realized that the commencement of mobility had changed lives, and the inclusion of innovative digital products is simplifying the lives of people and businesses.
A zeal to ripe innovative digital solutions for various businesses facing hurdles while catering their services in a digital-led world has inspired me to run a venture. Thus, with the zealous minds of 4, we have rooted RipenApps in 2017.
When we started, we had no idea how to run a business. We had our first sales by ourselves. We distributed the tasks among 4 and worked many sleepless nights.
From hiring the talents to managing the work process, we have accomplished all and always being focused on our mission of delivering enormous value to businesses that are seeking genuine solutions.
Since its inception, we have double-fold our team size, clientele, portfolio, and ROI year by year, and now the time has come when RipenApps holds the excellence worldwide and is entitled as the fasted growing company.

Our service la carte holds mobile & web app solutions (iOS, Android, Cross-platforms, Flutter, ReactNative, IoT, Wearable & other latest technologies). We serve various industries like EdTech, Healthcare, FinTech, Entertainment, Social networking, On-demand, etc.
What is unique about your label brand?
Ishan Gupta: Since there are various market players in the same domain and doing wonders with their different strategies & problem-solving skills, RipenApps is unique: its “Sheer quality, On-time delivery, & long-term association assurance.”
But, despite being a part of an industry where only 40% to 50% get completed out of all those that get initiated, at RipenApps, our project completion success proportion is 95%.”
What made you choose this type of business?
Ishan Gupta: A strong belief that the inclusion of mobile technology and digitalization of processes for any individual or a business will help them ease their lives and be more focused on their core business has made me choose to run RipenApps. And with a mission to achieve success peak in the same, we are doing wonders in just 5 years.
“Many, many more to come.”

What have been some of your failures, and what have you learned from them?
Ishan Gupta: Every successful startup has some hurdles because running a venture is not like walking in a park. Since we started, we have worked many sleepless nights to acquire our first project. Since then, when we began receiving assignments, we have worked on our premises.
From hiring the talents to managing the work process, we faced challenges at every step. Still, our never-say-no zeal has kept us awake on the path where we had only one goal: to reach the stage where we’ll deliver enormous value to the business seeking genuine and innovative digital solutions.

What was the inspiration behind turning into an entrepreneur?
Ishan Gupta: Understanding users’ pain points and creating a customized digital solution for them, which led them to the right & seamless way to run their business and service catering, is the major motivation & inspiration.
Key things to consider before starting a startup?
Ishan Gupta: Well, there are multiple things that a person should explore, understand and experiment with before starting a startup.
But from my point of view, the majors are- 1. A business idea- that is solving the world’s real-time problems, 2. Knowledge or expertise- to have confidence that you’ll sustain in the market, and 3. Market demand- validating your idea with the market’s demand can help you count your success rate proximity.
Rest cost; capital is other things.
One crucial thing I consider the topmost among all is the right Team. If you find a dedicated team, you find a rock pillar that will lead you towards success for so sure.
Your success tips for young and aspiring entrepreneurs
Ishan Gupta: It’s no surprise that you need luck in entrepreneurship. Also, good emotions, passion, and drive keep you motivated.
Your business should ignite a spark in your heart. However, to succeed, you must apply a systematic approach to almost every aspect.
It would be wise to use this approach for business analysis, like niche, advantages, and disadvantages of your idea among the competitors. It will help you predict the results and prepare for your next move.
