If Plan A does not work, there are 25 more letters in the English alphabet.
That’s the motto that the co-founder of Helical IT Solutions, Nikhilesh Tiwari lives by. Third time turned out to be the charm for him and his co-founder Nitin Sahu. Nikhilesh’s first two attempts, unfortunately did not go as expected as they could not get the necessary traction or as the idea did not click.
There are many who are not even able to figure out what exactly they want to do with their lives by the age of 27. Nikhilesh Tiwari is certainly not one of them. By the time he turned 27, he has been part of two failed start-up attempts and a successful third one. An Engineer and a management graduate by qualification, Nikhilesh and his partner Nitin Sahu (also an MBA) started Helical IT Solutions, an Open Source Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence solutions company. They have already created a solid base with 12 clients and also raised an initial round of seed funding in just 7 months since the inception of their venture.
Along with a dynamic team of 14 at Helical IT Solutions, Nikhilesh has surely created a dent in the Data Warehousing and Business Intelligence (DWBI) universe. They have made it big, all within a span of a year. They dived in full time in Nov 2012, with almost no money spent on marketing!
