After working with Microsoft for 3 years and waiting for ‘The idea’ to strike him, as he likes to say, Ronak Samantaray finally quit his job to take the route of entrepreneurship. With an aim to use the power of internet to make a difference in the running of local businesses and start-ups, he founded NowFloats, which allows the users to create a Website for their organization and update it through SMSs or a simple mobile app. Today, with more than 2000 customers to it’s credit, NowFloats is being used by small boutiques to multiple store chains like Nokia.
This is just the tip of the iceberg!
Apart from NowFloats, Samantary also invented the Speech Glove that interprets finger gestures and converts them to audio speech making communication with hearing impaired people, easier. Most of all, he did all this by the age of 26.
