The First Company: Vedant started his first entrepreneurial venture at the age of 17. The venture was named “Har Aadmi Online”. The idea was to give each and every shop in Pune a website.
Har Aadmi Online had an aim of giving each and every small and large shops in the locality a website so that they can develop an online presence. The concept was to empower entrepreneurs at all level and also build a listing of shops in Pune. The USP of this idea was to provide each and every shop with a website and social media pages all at 3333 INR. The idea went like a fire in the whole locality and around 500 stores were provided with a website within no minute.

Well, the business might have gone down but the idea of taking each and every shop online was something remarkable. The idea if implemented properly today can do wonders, not only for shop owners but also for the local users. It would get easier for people to find and locate even small stores in their locality; this idea will surely make the world a better place to live.
