Abhay Dugad— An Amazing Storyteller and a Passionate Sankalpian
As a Co-founder at Sankalp, the one thing that I have realized is that if you have to stay relevant, you need to constantly reinvent. My focus remains to continually explore opportunities missed by others. Most employees today remain insulated within the goals assigned by their departments, this is where I would like to leverage my position and assess and mobilize the organizational goals in line with the emerging trends & technological advancements around the world.
“My team has been a major influencer in my success”
With a background in Mechanical Engineering, my experience centered on manufacturing & this made starting an IT firm a little difficult. Today I owe my business decisions to the experiences that I have gathered along the way and of course my team has been a major influencer in my success. As a Co-Founder, the one valuable lesson that I abide by is to refrain from micromanagement and instead focus on building an all-inclusive environment which in turn results in getting the best results from my team.
“We are on the cusp of a digital revolution,”
says Mr. Abhay Dugad to young entrepreneurs
I would urge interested individuals in investing their energies in building an online marketing reputation & optimizing the digital media platforms. No matter, how big or small the business, it is essential to build a strong digital marketing campaign to establish your brand & create an identity with the power of social media.
Rajan Dhole— A Visionary Reader and a Proud Sankalpian
I was born in a small village, Yenere, very close to the birthplace of the great Maratha ruler Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, in a middle-class family. Since my early childhood, my parents had instilled in me the strong values of education, learning, and hard work. It was this early foundation along with my passion for knowledge that I completed my Masters in Computer Science from the very reputed Dr. DY Patil College, University of Pune.
It was the loss of my father at a young age, when I was still in college, coupled with my drive to prove myself that along with my friend Abhay Dugad, started an IT company, in the year 2001. Today as the Co-Founder and Director of Sankalp, I am engaged in a multitude of responsibilities & tasks which range from ensuring a high-end product & excellent service, controlling the finances, engaging the team in continuous innovation & creativity, and parallelly ensuring the overall development of Sankalp and Sankalpians.
I strongly believe that to accomplish your vision you need to back it with action. My ‘mantra’ remains that to create an impactful leadership I should go forward with a positive approach for the best results.
The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself!
I have grown up in an environment, where the drive to excel was instilled at an early age. I always wanted to go against the tide and do the best and carve a unique position for myself. It was largely my self – belief along with the constant support of my family, friends, and well-wishers that I have achieved success.
“Success is where preparation and opportunity meet,” believes Mr. Rajan Dhole
As young entrepreneurs, it is highly advisable that you remain cognizant of every emerging technology and be prepared for any opportunity that comes your way. The thing about opportunities is that once you pass it, you have lost it forever and someone else is sure to take advantage of it. So be prepared!

A lot of employees are from the interior provinces of Maharashtra but each a star in his or her own right.
