Meet Mukesh, co-founder and CEO of SegWitz. SegWitz helps digitalisation, scaling and turn your business ideas into a million dollar start up. But it wasn’t a smooth journey when he first started SegWitz. Every entrepreneurs could relate the gloomy days of starting up where failures and rejections were the norm.
The Story Of Mukesh Maran
Mukesh story of entrepreneurship started when he was 5 years old. Idolising Bill Gates, Mukesh had always wanted to start a software company with the hopes of becoming one of the world’s biggest techs. The thought of it lingers on Mukesh’s mind every day. It’s that thought that motivates Mukesh to start coding at the age of 13 and learn about entrepreneurship.
Mukesh was not a bright student in school. He recalled that ‘computers’ was the only thing that he think of. His first venture as an entrepreneur started once he leaves school. Mukesh sells computers and network hardwares in bulk quantities but it did not succeed. The business went busted after a year of running and he faced his first failure as a start-up.
Not giving up, Mukesh soon find himself starting a video game development startup in 2017 while working as a freelance web developer and tech consultant. He soon learn that many companies were burning lots of money by outsourcing their web and mobile app development works but projects were not completed and fail to be deliver by those software companies. One such company spent hundred of thousands but the outcome was really disappointing.
Failure of delivery by those agencies led to massive financial losses, failure of business and subsequently, Mukesh was inspired to start SegWitz to provide efficient solutions to these clients.
Mukesh and SegWitz
Mukesh’s expertise as a tech consultant proves to be a life saver for those companies. Equipped with ideas and client centric solutions in mind, Mukesh analyses failure rates of these software companies and soon decided to start his own company to help companies digitalise its structure and products.
SegWitz was officially born in January 2019 with Mohit Kumar joining as co-founder and Chief Technology Officer 7 months later. With a handful of clients jumping over, SegWitz’s clients slowly continue to grow with Mukesh’s determination. Mukesh will regularly travel across different states in Malaysia to meet prospects and clientele and work on small mobile projects.
In 2020, words started to spread out and SegWitz saw an explode in team, clienteles base and brand growth. When the pandemic hit, prospects meetings were held entirely online through video calls and businesses were still growing at a healthy rate.
