Nurul Islam Choudhury, Founder at Samsu Pro Consulting Solutions Pvt Ltd
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Nurul Islam Choudhury (NIC): Founded SamsuPro because I always wanted to be an entrepreneur, but the platform HoppingShopping has a story and let me tell you that. As an Indian I have noticed that we are using more ‘Made In China’ (Chinese) products than ‘Made In India’ products. Our government (GOI) is taking many initiatives to promote and encourage to manufacture products locally, under ‘Make In India’ and ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ in relation to economic vision and economic development in the country. Some of the Indian manufacturers are facing multiple challenges that includes lack of funds, low profit, poor infrastructure, difficult to survive when competing with foreign products. Overall as Indian we are not working hard to retain our culture, we are more attracted to the foreign culture and we are adopting them very fast instead of learning our culture in dept and presenting them in a modern form. At HoppingShopping we plan to empower Indian manufacturers and sellers with an Omni-channel market place to sell their products and through our actions we will re-initiate our lost culture as we do business.
Great Companies: What are the various Services provided by Samsu Pro Consulting Solutions Pvt Ltd
Nurul Islam Choudhury: At SamsuPro we are in process of developing multiple applications and platform for the Indian market, which we will reveal at the right time. But at present we are focusing for the newly launched market place.
HoppingShopping is an online marketplace for buying and selling made in India products. We are promoting Indian manufacturers running small scale businesses so that they can sell their products to a larger customer base across pan Indian. This will help manufacturers to increase their sale and the customers will be able to buy authentic products from different Indian states/region without travelling. We are running a consumer feedback system, which will help us to improve the quality of the product. We are working towards to make shopping experience better for our customers, hence we are controlling end to end experience.
