The Story of SwitchBazaar
Everything in this start’s from a vision, from a dream, and from a very small but un-fluctuating hope that one day things will change for better, for the larger good. Every story starts like that, and today also we will talk about a similar story of hope, The Story of SwitchBazaar. So hold tight and get ready for a perfect adventure.
SwitchBazaar – Where does it come from?
SwitchBazaar is the dream of some real followers of “Make in India” and “Digital India” initiative. To be specific, it was a dream seen by Ritesh Shah. Talking of technological aspects, SwitchBazaar.com is India’s 1st Electrical B2B Marketplace for Global Trade. SwitchBazaar is dedicated website for Electrical Goods and Services. Our primary focus is to provide an opportunity to Small & Medium scale Enterprises (SMEs) to connect to the buyers across the world.
The Story – How it all started?
“If you can dream it, you can do it.”
That’s the quote Ritesh Shah had believed throughout his life. He begins his career with the unending fire as an Inplant trainee at L&T during his academic and moved along to diverse in strong multinational companies like Essar Group & Reliance Industries. He holds an MBA in Supply Chain Management from Welingkar Institute of Management along with Bachelor degree in Electrical Engineering, but this isn’t what makes him start “SwitchBazaar”, it’s the vision, the strong problem-solving perspective, and the ability to seeing what people usually miss is what led him to create this mega dream, SwitchBazaar. Everyone needs some specific qualities in order to create something different, to bring the innovation, and Ritesh Shah has that. He has the perspective to see things differently, and a novel innovative approach towards everything we see in this world. Through SwitchBazaar.com, SMEs can promote their goods & services to all sizes of companies across the world. Sellers on SwitchBazaar are typically Electrical Manufacturers, Distributors, Dealers, Importers, Exporters & Service providers.
The Problem & Challenge
Ritesh’s vision had always been different, so it didn’t take so long to him to see what 90% of the population of India is still ignoring. He saw the problems people are facing in sourcing and procurement transactions. He saw that the whole supply chain between industrial products is unorganized, offline, and there is no dedicated Electrical B2B marketplace which could help them in executing their business at the optimum level. The main cause of the problem is the rigidness and slow speed of Indian manufacturers to adapt technology, which was directly leading them to process inefficiencies and reducing marketing exposure as well.
This gave him a shock but at the same time inspires him to conceptualize and form a platform named SwitchBazaar where electrical suppliers can easily promote their goods & services on a global level.
But like they say, beginnings are the hardest. No business becomes super successful fortnight. SwitchBazaar had taken birth in the mind of Ritesh, but taking it to being the problem solver for the larger industrial population of India was not at all easy. But someone also has said that “there’s a will, there’s a way”. Ritesh created the SwitchBazaar with supreme hard work, determination and with strong man-power from different expertise. He found people who were best in their field and made them all fall in love with the idea. It took nights, hard days, and the endless struggle to solve this basic need of the market, but good things happen to those who work hard and have patience. So SwitchBazaar team does the same, they work hard and had faith through patience.
