Vinay Arora: exemplar of entrepreneurial success
If you really want to generate more business with a quality website. It may be the first line of communication between your business and potential guests or visitors. The great advantage of having a website for your business is that the website will be available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be viewed from anywhere in the world. Therefore, anyone can collect suitable information from the website at any time. In today’s business environment and to beat the competition, large or small companies definitely need to develop a good website. Many business owners use the excuse that their business is “word-of-mouth” and they do not need a website. But a great way to reinforce the personal recommendations of other clients is through professional website development. Web development helps a company to increase product awareness & knowledge, maintain communication with potential clients, sell the products or services, generate leads for the business, and increase the popularity of the company and much more.

Our editorial team spoke to Vinay Arora, the Director of Hire Indians InfoTech (P) Limited about his personal & professional journey, challenges, life in general and much more. Here are the edited excerpts.
Take us to the genesis of your personal and professional journey.
My journey began with the boundless inspiration and blessings of my father. He was a teacher at Kendriya Vidyalaya and my mentor from childhood who instilled in me the values of humanity and nurtured a broader perspective in me. His blessing shone upon me when the times got dark and I had to juggle between high school and work to make the ends meet. My penniless and homeless days came to an end when Waahe Guruji rescued me with his kind words and benevolent heart, and that is when my personal and professional journeys merged and a new path was forged before me, path that led to shouldering huge responsibilities with the establishment of Hire Indians with my wife Sujata Arora.
How did you come up with this business idea/get associated with the company?
While working as an employee of a software development company, I got chance to travel to different countries on my project. During my stay in these countries, I spent time in analysing why I have been sent to these countries from India on these projects instead of utilizing local manpower. I found that there is huge shortage of technical skills in these countries and also its very difficult to hire and fire an employee because of strict govt regulations. We have enough manpower in India but we are short of business/projects. I initially thought of supplying Indian manpower to these companies but later came to know about many hurdles in getting visa’s and travels. While on my project in Switzerland, one friend asked me to help him getting an Indian developer who can work for him for 2 months remotely. This is how Idea came to my mind for providing remote developers and that gave birth to Hire Indians.

All my life has been a series of risks but I believe in taking calculated risks. I firmly believe that every risk is a challenge that I can succeed to make my company grow and flourish.
What do you like to do the most when you are not executing your business operation?
I love traveling and exploring new places. A cosy day in my life is a new place explored. Luckily, my wife also likes traveling so its easy to plan any short or long tour in very short notice. I love cooking also and that’s the thing I do for my wife and kids when I am not busy with work. Reading stories to my children before tucking them to sleep is what I love doing the most.
Describe the most memorable incident of your professional life.
I remember the day I got my first job after three months of unpaid internship. It’s like the darkness that was caving in on me suddenly exploded into a burst of sunshine. So, that is the most memorable incident of my professional life.
