Our founder was born and raised in Siolim, Goa. Over 23 years ago after his education he left Goa to work abroad. During his visit back in March 2018, he met with local youth and local women and got excited to see in them the entrepreneurship and desire to do more. Inspired and wanting to see locals succeed and have opportunities that he did, he decided to nurture some local talent in Technology and march towards his vision to help Goa be the next IT hub like Pune and other cities in India.
To begin with, we developed a technology based solution to help Goa with the first HOME MAINTENANCE platform that will allow all Goans, foreigners, 2nd home owners, and hoteliers to connect serve at ONE STOP for all their home needs. Our focus is to give Goans more opportunity to stand on their feet and work in the area that they are passionate about.
Next, we heard about SHG (Self Help Group) in Siolim and decided to meet the leader to see if they will be interested in taking small type of work from GHS so we can help them generate more business through our platform. During our meeting, our founder saw how the tedious manual work being performed by this group. He got engaged with GHS and VO leaders to understand more about the process. He learnt that government is trying to develop some platform for SHG but it’s not coming soon. The VO and SHG requested our founder to help them be digital. He was not happy to see how this group is not supported by Government and decided to self invest and do it as a non-profit for the community and specially for the place that he was born (Siolim).
