Meet this Engineer who got rejected at 300 jobs before starting his own company, now makes Rs 9.5 Cr annually

Founded in 2014, Enterprise Monkey is a software development company headquartered in Geelong, Australia, with offices spanning across four countries. 

Aamir Qutub, the Founder

At the helm of this tech venture is Aamir Qutub who was always inclined towards entrepreneurship and the startup world.

He completed his Mechanical Engineering degree from Aligarh Muslim University and went on to land a job at Honda Cars in Noida.

But he quit his job and decided to further his business and knowledge acumen by undertaking an MBA from Australia.

Upon relocating to Australia, Aamir Qutub, like anyone else, wanted a stable source of income that he could use to sustain himself while studying for his MBA degree.

He applied to more than 300 jobs and eventually landed one as the cleaner head at a popular Australian airport.

After sometime, he decided to take up selling newspapers during the night so as to accommodate his classes during the day.

Leap of Entrepreneurship

It was during these formative years that the seeds of Enterprise Monkey were sown. 

Aamir’s fascination with technology, coupled with his entrepreneurial spirit, led him to take a leap of faith. 

Inspired by the visionaries of the tech realm like Elon Musk and Steve Jobs, Aamir recognized a glaring gap in the market. 

While there were abundant tech service providers catering to small and large corporations, the needs of medium to large enterprises remained unaddressed. 

This realization served as the impetus behind the birth of Enterprise Monkey.

Challenges and Opportunities

In 2014, Aamir founded Enterprise Monkey in a garage.

He came across numerous initial challenges, including the lack of prior tech experience and the struggle to secure clients. 

However, his determination and unwavering belief in his vision led to a turning point. 

During a train journey in Australia, Aamir found his first client. Although he was a non-paying one, working with him proved to be the start of golden word-of-mouth recommendations for Enterprise Monkey.
