Embarking on the Journey
The foundation of Pikbuk was laid in 2016 by a team of tech enthusiasts headed by Amit Jain. "The plan was to venture in an e-commerce company to avoid head on competition with the big players. This was only possible when the saleable products were customized and not available off the shelf and are pocket friendly. We made sure our products could be easily delivered throughout the country without the hassle of refund or expiry date," he mentions.
The company had its share of problems at the inception and development stage mostly related to the development of the app and website which required advanced technology. Initially, experienced engineers did not want to join startups, arranging funding was a challenge getting the right vendors to print was another big challenge.
However with relentless efforts and the go getter spirit of the team, Pikbuk has overcome all these challenges. Pikbuk has the potential to be a market leader in Photo printing & gifting industry. The company looks forward to a turnover of USD 3 million in the next two years with 125 percent PBT.
