The business ideation initiated in July 2013 and the company was formed in August 2013.
In December, the three co-founders made their first trip to China and India to identify suppliers to source the initial list of products. The team identified a set of four suppliers that could supply products that were identified as good sellers to initiate the start-up business. By end February 2014, four container loads of products were ordered from identified four suppliers. The first two containers arrived in April 2014 and the business began trading in May 2014 when the other two containers of products were delivered. In the third month of trading, we were ready to make the next order of products to import. The business is growing and expanding slowly but surely.
