In January 2000, Rahul Aggarwal co-founded i2k2 Systems, a web hosting company, with Raj Vrach, a batch mate from Thapar Institute of Engineering and Technology, Patiala, India. Both were very confident that the Net would become a useful and sought after business tool. While Vrach was based in the US, Aggarwal decided to grab the opportunity to set up a business in India. Moreover, ARS Software, where Rahul worked as a project head, was about to shut shop.
With the increasing usage of internet they realized that a hosting technology can help companies create and maintain an online presence. As web hosts, their role was to provide space on a server they would own, as well as provide Internet connectivity. Knowing thatthe hosting business would be profitable in the long run, they focused on providing quality web services.
While Rahul Aggarwal went about setting up the i2k2 office in Delhi, Vrach leased two servers and obtained licenses for software applications. Vrach was also the company’s lead-off person in the US, from where they expected a majority of their business to flow in. It was through a contact in June 2001 that Aggarwal found his first client—Polyplex Corporation, producers of thin polyester film. The first billing was for Rs 12,500.
Even though was facing tough time, it got golden chance to work with big-names such as Honda, OWM Nahar group and Trident. They closed the year (2001-2) with a turnover of Rs 9 lac. But the market loans had touched Rs 22 lac, it`s become hard for company to even pay employee’s salary. However, Aggarwal was confident that i2k2 could take on the challenge of handling web applications.
With all ups and downs, the company expanded its web services, and launched a “domain name protection service” to save websites from hackers. Finally they got their first US client Pechan, an environment consultant that eases the financial pressure of company.
In 2004, the company recorded its first profit. A majority of its revenue came from two of its US-based clients—Regions Bank and WrapAir. Same year by August i2k2 finally cleared all its debts.In 2005 Aggarwal and his partner managed to rope in one of their biggest clients, AIG Insurance. It was a big contract and they hired more people. By 2006, the company the company strength touched 40 employees. Kamleshwar Bhatt, their first employee (joined i2k2 in 2001), still works with them as the Chief Operating Officer (COO) and ensures the satisfaction of the clients and the team. Meanwhile, Vrach kept up his contribution by implementing new technologies and remained the company’s one-man army in the US.
By January 2007 TechTribe, a career and social networking platform for technology professionals, assist company in providing its clients the enterprise-level applications that help create business-oriented tools such as online shopping, payment processing, interactive product catalogue, automated billing systems, security, content management, etc.This not only helped them strengthen relations with existing clients but also assisted them in expanding the list by adding Bennett, Coleman & Co, Aakash Institute, Whirlpool India, Fortune Park Hotels, the government of Madhya Pradesh, Amity University, Omni Globe International, Indian Angel Network and TiE under its belt.
