While working in the US I realised that there was huge scope in the IT/ITES sector in India. This coupled with the fact that I was uncomfortable doing a cushy job and yearned for the challenge and thrill of setting up my own venture made me pack my bags and come back to make a fresh beginning. Chandigarh, rather than the “silicon centres” like Bangalore or Gurgaon, was my first choice as it is my hometown and an upcoming IT destination. Starting in Chandigarh was also a financially prudent decision as the initial capital investment as well the rentals and salary burden was much less here than it would have been in other established centres. Besides I wanted to excel and stand out in a small centre rather than get lost in a big IT centre like Bangalore or Gurgaon.
Taking up the challenges
There is no dearth of challenges if you decide to start a venture in India. Even getting your company registered is a huge challenge here. Getting the right talent was the major challenge here as there is severe shortage of "job-ready" IT professionals. While companies in Bangalore can fill a position in a day, in Chandigarh it may take upto three months. It was tough to find the right team. This is when the idea of starting training modules struck me and I launched IMesh Lab which is an Industrial Training Centre where we provide a widerange of technical and soft skill training courses. The courses include Web Designing & Development, Mobile Application,3D and Animation, Enterprise Management and other courses.We have two modules of training. In the first one we take up complete freshers and start from the scratch, while in the other module those with some knowledge of IT are given supporting training to make them proficient in the role assigned to them. Trainees are given an opportunity to work on live projects so that they get experience as well as a sound technical knowledge and valuable industry insights. Our motive is to focus on the concept of each course right from the basics.

Indian Mesh has set up iMesh Lab to train young graduates and give them research and innovation exposure.Abhishek said, "Faculty has limited industry exposure so they are not able to empower students according to the needs of the industry. For example, though there has been phenomenal scope in mobile applications such as Android and iOS platforms, these are yet to find a place in many institutes' curriculums. We provide training in latest IT technologies such as Android and iOS, Java and PHP. We also make students work on live projects with our experts. After undergoing training they get expertise in their field. We also offer scholarships to students and job opportunities to bright candidates."
