His entrepreneurial journey started when he completed his engineering degree and he wasn’t offered campus placement by any MNC.

He made a debut in the world of entrepreneurship with the vertical transportation industry. He observed that due to space crunch in Delhi there is a steep rise in demand of high-rise buildings in Delhi, which necessitates the installation of elevators in the building & the capital Delhi which was still getting used to high rise building culture was witnessing a high demand of quality elevators, which led him to this industry. He analysed the market and stepped into the market and the outcome was unparallel. He successfully set up his business and saw development in his business.
He not only made a debut in this sector but sensing that this sector has a future and a well-defined growth structure he introduced his school friends to this and they too started their business in just a couple of years there was a completely developed ecosystem of lifts in Paschim Vihar. The ecosystem has allowed him to grow holistically.

This is the way I can best contribute in nation building and development of our society.” Adding to this he not only has helped people run businesses but is also continuously engaged with various social campaigns and events.
One such instance is of DDA Flat, Delhi Development Authority where he sensed that people living in flats developed by Delhi Development Authority were not able to avail the facility of lifts. So, he decided to run a campaign and bring a solution to their problems. He started helping them and providing free consultations to senior citizens to obtain NOC for installation of lifts in their flats and societies so that they do not face problems, as of date he has helped more than 55 families and the number keeps growing as he continuous his good work.
