Hasan Kakal, CoFounder at Bikester Global Pvt Ltd




Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Hasan Kakal : I love travelling to off beat destinations. More so , on my bike. Most of my travel is to places where you will generally not find any tourists. I did a trip to Ladakh in 2016 on my bike and realised there is so much to experience in life which people haven't experienced. I soon left my job at Kantar TNS and started Bikester Global with Atikulla Merchant with an idea to take people to unexplored destinations.


Great Companies: What are the various Services provided by Bikester Global Pvt Ltd

At present, we also have an online store where bikers can shop their favourite riding gear like helmets, jackets, gloves, etc. and other motorcycle accessories.

Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Hasan Kakal : Travel industry on the whole has seen a lot of ups and downs in the last year due to the pandemic. We had to deal with frequent cancellations and modifications of tour plans due to this. On the ecommerce side, dealing with logistics is still a huge challenge in India. Ecommerce has been growing at a huge pace. The logistics aren't able to cope up with that. Our team needs to be in constant communication with the logistics to ensure that the customers order reaches before time.
