X-Cellent Technology & Solution

I am Sangeeta, born & brought up in Bhiwani. The youngest child of 4 siblings, started studying computer engineering at Rohtak in 1991. After completing it, I reached Delhi with big dreams in 1994. Coming from the state where government has to run a campaign of "Beti Bachao Beto Padhao", I dared to dream big and started my career as CSE holding screwdriver in male dominated industry. A senior executive guided me that I could do great in sales & marketing than service. After that, I worked for 2 years as a star performer winning big sales incentives where I could fund my own marriage in 1996. Got blessed with my first daughter "Khanak" in 1998 and second daughter "Peehu" in 2003. This was a turning point in my life. While on bed I kept working on certain deals & made more money than my salary. That moment I realised that I can do my own business. Despite husband's reservations & discouragements, in 2006 I started X-Cellent Technology & Solution with a capital of only 50000/- and one laptop from home. Backed by 12 years of industry experience with hard work & good contacts in industry, I could scale up fast by closing the deals with good margins. I reinvented the idea of renting the IT equipments & made short term goals & kept on achieving them. I have been part of many success stories of startups & building my own assets from one laptop to 1000+ laptops and 7+ properties without any funding. I got good exposure at “Goldman Sach 10KW” program for scaling up business and won best business plan award. I am the president of Delhi NCR chapter helping 300+ women in their journey of entrepreneurship while sharing my experience and guidance. Being a woman, the journey to become a successful entrepreneur has been full of challenges (payment defaults, loss of rented equipment, high attrition, and adding new and retaining existing customers, diversifying in new areas). Adapted innovative ways to overcome all challenges and now has a turnover of 4 crore with zero liability.
