Mithun Adith and Anusha Sundar hail from Erode, a town in Tamil Nadu, located in the southern part of India.
The duo shared the same Alma mater at K.S.R. College of engineering and pursued their Bachelor’s in Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering, respectively.
The idea behind SpotKwik
While talking to TimesNext, Mithun told us that it all started with an online shopping experience of his friend who often looks to buy things online and genuinely enjoys the comfort of online shopping. Mithun came to know from her that she purchased shoes from a famous online store, which turned out not good though it had a 4-star rating and positive revies.
Mithun realized that there are many people like his friend who are facing the same problem every time they shop online. This motivated Mithun to come up with a solution and started the journey of research to ideation and prototype to the execution of SpotKwik.
Challenges in the outset
“Challenges are an opportunity to test you and rise to the next level.”
Mithun and Anusha faced a lot of challenges, while the most significant challenge for them was to find the right team. In the initial stages, the company didn’t have sufficient capital to fund a team while required a minimum of 7 people to turn the idea into a go-to-market product.
Mithun built a team of 7 talented people who worked with Mithun every day, taking SpotKwik to the market.
The team of 7 was motivated with the idea of why SpotKwik is being built & what is it going to solve. They married themselves to the product’s vision, working every day late at night till 4 AM, taking Spotkwik to the market.
