Ahmedabad Alumnus Ashutosh Mehta, BTech in Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2022, School of Engineering and Applied Science, recently won the New Startup Award by Quality Mark for his firm, ShyamRatna Projects. The idea for the startup occurred to Ashutosh while in his third year at the University. ShyamRatna Projects is an engineering contracting firm that handles mechanical, electrical, fire, plumbing, and Extra Low Voltage (ELV) projects in both commercial and residential spheres. As its founder, Ashutosh focuses on delivering quality services to his clients and ensures that all necessary systems are integrated seamlessly and efficiently into construction projects right from the beginning. “Our goal is to add value for our clients through innovation, foresight, integrity, and aggressive performance,” he says.
Making it as a young entrepreneur comes with its share of challenges, and Ashutosh always strives to stay ahead of the curve with his hard work and tenacity. He plans to take ShyamRatna Projects across India in the future. He expresses his gratitude towards his father and Ahmedabad University, especially to Professors Shuja Ahmed and Keyur Joshi for their support and guidance in his entrepreneurial endeavour. He adds, “Ahmedabad has provided me with immense opportunities in diverse fields that have helped me develop a broad perspective.” In addition to engineering, Ashutosh also acquired leadership skills as a part of the University’s Sports and Music Clubs. Currently, he is one of the mentors of the Entrepreneurs Club. “Stay curious and never stop learning. That is the key to growth in any field,” he adds.
