Having started programming at an early age, Saurabh Moody has been an expert in writing technology. He says that he started programming after he failed in the 7th standard and had no friends. He subsequently failed again in the 9th and 11th standard before he dreamed of being an entrepreneur and founded two ventures. After successfully starting up two companies, ‘The perfect future’ and ‘SAAS Info Labs’, Saurabh founded ‘Real Box’; a company that uses Predictive Analysis to decrease risk, lower cost and improve customer service of an offline business. The entrepreneur says, “I thought; why not design a system which can create a consistent guest-like experience for offline businesses. That’s how Real Box happened. After a bit of research, I discovered a huge gap in the market. More than 95% of businesses run offline.”

The number is $6 Million
Although Saurabh’s company is being valued at close to $6 Million, the road to success wasn’t easy for the techie. Not having the funds to start out, he was stagnant in his business for a while. However, Saurabh didn’t give up and took part in competitions. This helped to get the ball rolling. He says, “While starting the business, I did not have any money at all. So we took part in competitions which had cash prizes. I went ahead with these business plan competitions and won close to $5000.” He then bootstrapped the company with $5000 and took it to where it is today.
I’m a much happier person than I was 15 years ago. Helping solve problems through technology is a really great feeling.”
The path towards happiness
Saurabh says that apart from the success he’s received from building his company, he’s also achieved a ton of happiness. He says, “I’m a much happier person than I was 15 years ago. Helping solve problems through technology is a really great feeling.” Real Box’s dream now is to help all offline entities around the world and build them into a much bigger and customer friendly entities. Saurabh wants to add a personal touch while helping these entities as well. He believes that the more personalized a business gets, the bigger it will grow from there. And, we know for a fact the Real Box is going to exponentially get bigger.
