Inspiring Story: Budding Tech Entrepreneurs

Arjun Rai caught the entrepreneurial bug at the age of seven, selling knick knacks that he found around the house. In his native India, young Arjun set up shop selling leftover wildflower necklaces after weddings; with the assistance of a cousin, he’d put up a banner at his grandmother’s front gate, asking for 25 cents per necklace.

TV shows like ‘The Oprah Show’ and ‘The Big Idea with Donny Deutsch’ inspired Arjun to take entrepreneurship to the next level. During the summer of 2009, he got a LinkedIn account (under the name Aaron Ray) and started connecting with other ambitious entrepreneurs, hoping to learn as much as possible about the art of entrepreneurship and business.

In 2010, Arjun became the COO of a quickly growing online advertising company, but he soon set out to follow his own,unique vision. That vision is a brand-new venture called odyssey Ads. Though he is just getting started, Arjun plans to build odyssey Ads into a premier online advertising network with a focus on customer service, maximizing ROI, and catering to 21st century marketer’s needs. In the midst of all this,  He’s 20 years old.

His Top Quote

“You always want to surround with people who are rooting for you and who want you to succeed. Stay away from the naysayers who couldn’t do it themselves.”
