Sooraj AV, Managing Partner at Infosec Solutions
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Sooraj AV: I have had a passion for electronics since my childhood. It started with lighting small LED bulbs using cells and later, when I was in 8th standard, I assembled a transistor radio. After completing 10th standard, I joined a Government Polytechnic College. Though I applied for electronics, I got a seat in computer hardware. This was the beginning of my learning journey in new technologies that I had never heard of before.
I made a conscious decision to pursue a job not just for monetary gain, but to fulfil my passion for electronics. I worked with an IT hardware networking company for 13 years, starting as a service technician and working my way up to Area Manager.
Eventually, I decided to start my own business focused on customized technologies instead of just selling pre-packaged solutions.
