Subham Charan, Founder at SolarClue
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Subham Charan: It was started in college when we realized how much of an impact of solar energy can make on the environment. We wanted to help people save money and make the world a better place.
The idea for the business came to me when I was in college and I noticed that there was a lack of companies that offers Solar Products services. There are plenty of companies that offer Solar services, but they are all focused on big ticket size deal and nobody was offering solutions to individuals or SMEs. So, I thought to myself, "Why not start my own company?"
I knew that if I started my own company, it would be a cheaper alternative for Individuals who were looking to save money and support environment. The business would allow to associate with varied manufacturers, dealers, distributors, and customers on one platform where they could afford and help each other.

Subham Charan: It is important to be honest and open about your struggles. It will make you more relatable to your audience.
I think the main challenge I faced was not knowing what my strengths were and how I could use them to my advantage. Also I was little emotional towards the team which actually creates a loophole. I overcame this by doing a lot of self-discovery, reading and writing about topics that interested me, but also by observing others and seeing how they used their strengths in their work.
