Title is : Story Behind Defencely
I Had joined Company in , Exact Date we meet is : 13 December 2012, Actually it was not official meeting , That is Date when i meet Ritesh First time,
Today Defencely Completed nearly 6 month, Me ,My Cousin(Rahul Shedge) And Ghanshyam Vyas (Maharaj) Meet At His Old Company Digital Edge
Maharaj is like my family member.
So after we meet at Digital edge Office Ritesh Gave me one proposal that Lets Build One Security Company. I had shown him various my achievement which i got that time, apple is one them and as he is biggest fan of apple and that attracts him lot And Offering me as let’s build one world wide product which will related to security field,
means securing websites. which is Defencely.com
As i was pursing my Post graduation (MSC Computer Science-I), I thought God gave me something special in form of ritesh, After His proposal to me i Said ok let’s Do it,
That Time Ritesh told us what ever investment need to build website and other buying equipment it will be done
from his pocket. At this Time The company equity divided in to 3 part. 50% equity will be Belongs to Ritesh Sarvaiya, 25% on me and 25% on my cousin(he was chief financial officer)(means total 50%). i Said OK Let’s Do it.
I Still Remember His Words : WE WILL USE YOUR SKILLS AND I WILL INVEST WHAT EVER MONEY IT NEED.
At this time Ritesh, Me , Maharaj And Rahul Shedge(my Cousin) Present in office.
Then Here’s Journey Start.
On 14th January 2013 we have registered Domain defencely.com After registering domain he said he will CEO And i will be CTO of company and marketing part will handle from his side and what ever technical things it will be handle by me. i was ok with it. after that he told me to add his name with me in what ever Next HOF (Hall Of Fame) I will get, i said ok i will do, i started working for company, added Ritesh and my name in google,Github , Ifixit ,Zynga , RedHat , Gallery , Apple , barracudalabs , Zendesk , Nokia I did my best to add Ritesh name in HOF, we was happy and dreaming future of defencely.
with in 1-2 months Ritesh Have resigned from his old company which i mentioned above Digital Edge, Also he was facing some big problems in life And he was in depressed.
He Came to our mentor Maharaj, as he was totally broken from heart, Maharaj gave him some suggestion (i was not here when he both discussing this), gave Him Advice And Supported him, After that Ritesh Told Maharaj to come onboard and maharaj said ok will come onborad, on behalf of that he offered maharaj 25% equity. Maharaj trusts on me lot and he told Ritesh that he will invest money as he have no doubt on my skills,
So you might thinking that what is need of maharaj in this part?
well maharaj is like my friend and my best well wisher, in everyone’s life there is one person, who you trusted lot and when ever any imp decision you have to take you firstly ask them , that what maharaj is for me. Ritesh was CMD and Chairman of Rikhav Infotech but he left company and after that some of his rikhav company investors cased on him (it’s confidential, can’t share it), unfortunately all his partners faced jail but he didn’t because with using maharaj political power, He protected Ritesh before he got jail, and at that time no one gave him bail, this time maharaj did. Maharaj supported him in every bad situation he faced.
Working Working And Working We passed 5 months website is online , almost everything is ready, all front end, Back End, i used my skills to get defencely and Ritesh name in all HOF without he having technical knowledge, But in That 5 month I Didn’t asked him for Single Amount of money And He Didn’t even asked me.(Because Maharaj Told me to not ask money, as it’s your first experience for building company, learn as much you can) At time came to do all things legally means on paper, he called me in night about 10pm and told that maharj asked for 25% equity, I said what you are talking, we just talked for hours(in between this hour he didn’t told me that he had talk with maharj and promised him to give 25% equity). i was not agree that time, i said wait i’m coming to mumbai, next day i gone to mumbai and meet maharaj personally and i asked him what happened, maharaj told me all discussion he had with Ritesh, after listning all, i was super surprise i called Ritesh and asked whether he had talk with maharaj or not, then he said “yea i had talk with maharj about equity and don’t consider that conversation, just think what we have discussed at beginning time” i said if you guys had talk how i can come in middle because maharaj is like my dad and i can’t go Against to him.i told Ritesh That i’m not agree with him
