The I we Recipe of Startup Success and How Delhi Based Tech Startup Successfully Nails It!

SHARE:

A misfit. A giver of what little he currently has and ambassador of social causes. A dreamer inside realms of high tech dreaming to change the world little by little, too audacious not to get up after a failure or two which inevitable follow.

Not to forget a college dropout!

These seems to be the traits of the young Indian entrepreneurs who bootstrap their way to the heights of success and make a fat trail of stories yet to be told in case they fail. They pop out from diverse corners of India, the country with one of the largest mass of Android enthusiasts and contributors. They dare to dream and build the next big thing and they refuse to accept India of today – an off-shore software development heaven and paradise for software testing & QA – lower stages of the software development and delivery process.


Instead they envision India to be spoken of. A birthplace of new high tech initiatives.

One of them is Samanyu Chopra who fulfills all the criteria mentioned above. He dropped out of college and started his first gig with coding at the age of 16. He rejected several lucrative job offers from the Sillicon Valley and instead decided to stick around in his home city New Delhi in order to create his own brain child – Daphnis Labs – an indie studio for making games, looking forward to make the next revolutionary game and put India in the global gaming map

Samanyu has faced the hard nut in  trying to establish his gaming studio successfully resisting the temptation to accept the several offers for investing that came on the way. One such challenge is assembling a good team which turns out to be one of the toughest encounters on which many have given up.

“I have become so good at firing (laughing). I am particular about the people I want to work with and I put myself entirely on the rowing board during turbulent weathers - jokingly explains Samanyu while telling on his greatest challenges in running a gaming startup in New Delhi.

It is anything but easy finding people with serious intentions who want to play hard and persevere, says Samanyu. Most young programmers go for the easy way, looking 9am-5pm, jobs in large well established companies with fancy walls and buildings.

He is surely not over reacting on this one. It seems that India still have a long way to go before it gives birth to fanatic programmers who chose to have no property and live in a van while being obsessed in creating the new big thing in the early stage of Google. History has proven over and over that only fanatics can bring tidal waves of disruption and turn the industry upside down. In the case of high tech, this has been seen already.

Daphnis Labs was entirely founded and bootstrapped in 2013, and their apps currently exceed the number of 3 million downloads on the marketplace. The team currently counts 5 people and they are all under the age of 25. Although young, Daphnis Labs and Samanyu Chopra do not lack the zeal in supporting and hosting various international non-profit tech initiatives in Indian soil including Hack4good 05 and 06, and now the Lean Startup Machine which is expected to happen in June this year. 

What makes a young entrepreneur able to fight the good fight?

In the case of Samanyu that would be the power of I we. He is a fanatic believer in the power of combined creativity and he allows that single belief to structure and design the processes and the culture inside Daphnis Labs. I am always willing to connect new people around and learn from even the youngest mind and craziest minds around. No one work's 'for' me, everyone works 'with' me, says Samanyu who is currently more focused more on marketing, managing and growth hacking for Daphnis Labs.

Samanyu and his team is currently focused on their next cross platform 2D platform game. The company’s dynamic and Samanyu’s obsession with gaming and design continues as he constantly reshapes his team adding new pieces to the board, programmers with potential and passion who once plugged is dangerous and hazardous by health to unplug them out. Playing the game of Matrix can be beneficial, and Samanyu is surely of the kind who would choose to remain plugged over time for the sake of finding that hidden Smith in emerging India.
