Navigating the right sea
Our brand story is unique. Here's who we are and why we do what we do.
Its founder Abhimanyu began the journey quite early as he forayed into programming early on in his career. Although he chose to major in psychology, he was always passionate about IT which saw him lecturing his juniors about the marvels of computer technology while at college.
While psychology seems an odd pairing with technology, one must be aware that being able to bring forth revolutionary technology that can change lives at a scale, involves in-depth knowledge about the human mind and the inner workings of society. His childhood visions of empowering humanity and promoting sustainability gradually transformed him into a humanist thinker. In this path, he founded FPI in 2008, and this is where the origins of Bitdle lie, as he needed a financial engine to power his humanitarian and ecological plans.
Abhimanyu sees collective humanity as a singular being which currently, needs a new direction, given the great challenges it is facing now. He firmly believes that technology can address social, economical, and environmental issues if used innovatively, and thoughtfully.
In 2013, as Abhmanyu continued his career as a social activist, he met entrepreneur and insurance consultant Shaji AV - a meeting that saw them disagreeing on nearly everything but indeed laid the foundation for a wonderful future. By the following year, they struck a partnership with FPI and with the help of a few technologists, started work on a virtual platform in 2014. We called it Indodial, or otherwise famously known as NorthStar.
However, repeated failures in developing a viable solution caused many associates to abandon the project. But Abhimanyu wasn't one to let go. He put together a new team and continued his work. This time too, he faced a few misfortunes until in 2018, the project was finished and Indodial was reborn as Bitdle.
In the same year, Abhimanyu and Shaji established Bitdle in a small office with big mandates. Understanding this as a right opportunity for admirable growth, Abhimanyu engaged in serious research and discussions with experts to determine a developmental framework to achieve Bitdle’s overarching corporate mission.
This was a transcendental stage and the name Bitdle played a great role in expressing our brand nature and aptly reflected our mission 'to shape the future of world and protect humanity by empowering people through connection, organized global knowledge and collaboration. Because it means - 'Light of Knowledge!'
A year later, Bitdle not only caught the attention of the community, but of investors as well. By April 2019, veteran businessman Sunil Kumar wrote a check for INR 10,00,000 and he was able to secure two million in investment. With this, he filled the gaps in the team and upgraded infrastructure. In the days that followed, the company embarked on a path of rapid expansion - hiring engineers, building a sales team and introducing the first projects. Bitdle outgrew its single room and eventually moved to its headquarters in smart city, Kochi.
A relentless search for better answers continues to be at the core of everything we do. Even our logo tells the same kind of story to you.
The first objective of Bitdle is to improve the life of people and empower communities through connection and collaborative efforts.
We’ve seen many developments, some less favourable than others. But we’ve also achieved many goals and hit milestones.
Bitdle has put in place a long term business plan that will serve as a roadmap to give it an independent future. We aim to build Bitdle as an independent entity which empowers life through business activities and helps to solve social issues. We would like to generate revenue to build better solutions. We commit to ensuring the promotion of an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future for our planet and for present and future generations. We define this initiative as the one world of humanity!
We are now poised to launch our first stage of growth. Although our operating income target for FY 2025 $60 billion seems soaring, we remain confident that it is well within our reach, based on projections. In order to achieve this target, we plan to work diligently to strengthen our financial and operating position by creating new products and next generation businesses.
As a realization of Abhimanyu's dreams, Bitdle users are now able to engage in instant interaction in a sophisticated virtual environment. We also created Bitdle Messenger and Bitdle Timeline as a standalone app.
A more positive development has been going on at the Bitdle labs as well with plans to diversify our offerings to include and integrate IoT, Wearable technology, AI, AR, VR, Blockchain and other disruptive technologies. Whether we're creating new products or helping small businesses expand their reach, we at Bitdle are builders at heart.
