Genesis

eCommerce is picking up all across the globe, but there is one place where this change is considerably prominent – India. Another segment of the industry which is all geared up to taste its share of success is that of couponing websites in today’s time. However this wasn’t the case when we launched Shop Pirate Coupons. Though entrepreneurship was in my blood but it happened with an incident. Once I wanted to gift a cell phone to a former colleague, but did not know where to get a good discount. I searched online to get the required information but didn’t find relevant information. At that point of time, I witnessed the gap in the industry for a technology backed coupons site which offers real benefit to the user. To fill this gap I quit my job and with strong conviction started working on Shop pirate concept of providing latest and working coupons and deals. Today, I can proudly say that my decision was right as today Shop Pirate has been considered as the most promising coupons website in India and within a span of more than 2 years, today we have more than 3 lakhs users which indicate our growth.

Once you have that solid foundation framed in your mind, you’re ready to lay that foundation to reality. Follow the path of discipline. And most importantly be ready to face various challenges. Do not do many things together instead do one thing and do it perfectly.
