Nikhil Tewari, Founder at Divine Music School Mumbai
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Nikhil Tewari: Sometimes things goes good unplanned that's my story and a fortunate one . I was doing my MBA in PR & Events in Mumbai side by side I was pursuing my hobby of playing flute. Later on I lost my interest in corporate life , where I was not performing good as well.. Saturday Sunday I was free so I utilised my time teaching flute . I remember my first advertisement was in olx where I got three learner's. I think they liked my teaching they came with 5 others. Time came where my weekends were fully occupied that got me motivated. Then I started advertising in Google and other portal got great response started getting home session as well . 6 months i got around 60 learners. Got financially sound . Then i planned with more professional approach, Rented a new place included other instruments and teacher's. Everything which i tried worked for me well.
