While at his job at Microsoft, Rohit did his first project. At a book launch of the CEO of Microsoft, Mr. Satya Nadella, Rohit was live doodling standing beside him throughout the event. This potential of Rohit was recognized, and the VP of the company later sent mail to all his employees. He appreciated the creativity that Rohit had shown and wanted his employees to understand the importance of it.

That little act of creativity made him realize the vast potential of imagination untapped by him. Even after working at a secure job for years, he had his eyes on the bigger picture. He wanted to explore ideas beyond the limits and explore his imagination. He wanted to help people with the creativity and ideas of his own. And that book launch event turned out as a wake-up call for him. So, he started working on the idea for a year and came up with Doodle Kit Project.

He realized that doodling not only relaxed his state of mind but also helped him express his ideas in a more creative way. So, he started conducting workshops during his job at Microsoft, but he realized his time limits. Thus, He came up with a product ‘Doodle Kit’, which was an easy DIY kit for people of all ages.

Later, after years of dedication, the ideas converted to the reality for Rohit. With the aim to impact the lives of people, and thriving to change the minds, a simple project took a form of a company. Taanvi held the Operations department, Rahul, a friend of Rohit, took care of the Innovations. It was self-funded by the founder and has been profitable from its initial days.

“What keeps you going is the thought of why you started.” : The message from the founder

“You start something new with all the motivation but sometimes you might lose your will. When that happens, you need to believe that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Imagine the view from the top of the mountain, once you start to climb it.” says the founder.

Once you start to think beyond just yourself, that’s when you change lives. You start the journey because you understand what impact it might create. The Passion within you keeps you going throughout.  The thought of why you started this in the first place, keeps you moving.
