SMEs are a fundamental part of the economic fabric in India, and they play a crucial role in furthering growth, innovation and prosperity. Unfortunately, they are strongly restricted by not having IT resources, due to expensive IT resource in India that they require to grow and expand, with nearly all of SMEs access to quality IT Support faces a major constraint. They might not be able to access the best IT knowledge and will do with whatever is available at the price they can effort and face strongly unfavourable operating conditions, even more so following the recent Digital Transformation initiative by Modi's government, they know online is the future but are hampered by the lack of quality and trust-able and cost effective information technology support support to engage in SME online. The overall result is an absence of a well-functioning SME online market, and SMEs are impeded in their growth, with negative consequences for innovation, economic growth and macroeconomic resilience.

For the first few we want to implement free so that the market see success stories, we need funds to do some of the real-time implementation completely free so that it creates a tangible reference point for other to join the race to online market.
How these Funds will be used
We have done most of the basics, we need funds to move to the next stage, and that too very minimum as rest of the things are in place
We are looking at Rs 10,00,000.00 as over all requirement to bring the product to the market in next six months. to do the initial marketing and promotion we need Rs 5,00,000.00 within the next month.
We are confident with the initial investment and positing of the products we will be able to generate enough revenue to sustain comfortable
The below financial feasibility of the project will put things in the correct prospective, we have taken the minimum of 6 customers for the first 6 months and another service like website development and Blog site development for SEO promotion as 20 number to generate the below financial details.
As we have automated most of the activity and we work on outsource model, there by reduced the fixed expenses of every month, since it is dynamic it can be scaled to any level as the needed as demanded by business.
