Lalit Gotham, sole founder of Handscart, a social startup working towards uplifting the status of artisans living across the globe. A typical Indian guy who calls himself an “accidental entrepreneur”, done his B. Pharma and MBA in finance. Switched to 6 different jobs in the span of 1.5 years in the search of a something that suits his personality and then, landed in business.
Handscart is providing a 360-degree development to artisans, society. However, the thing that made Handscart different is that it is the sole startup in India to acquire three European Visas (France, Italy and Spain).
What made Handscart different from all?
Well, Handsacrt provides a solution to artisans problem ranging from lack of education, exploitation from different NGOs, association groups. It provides knowledge via workshops, making one of the artisans as the coordinator who is obligated to teach and represent artisans at different platforms. Skill development is what the main motto of the startup. Along with, artisans are able to earn the good sum of money from this venture.
In order to understand the variety of goods that are listed on the site, it would be enough to say that orphanage children, refugees from across the globe are contributing and above all, their work is getting international recognition. Start up being environment-friendly in nature has recycled products too.acquiring them was a tedious job for Lalit Gotham because his own co-founder left the competition in between. Then, he got it out of 800 new startups across the globe, which added to the competition level. These visas will enable Lalit and his startup to establish his business freely and an opportunity to work with the respective nation’s government.

This is all despite the fact that Lalit Gotham has faced many challenges while establishing his business. Because his target audience- artisans are exploited by different communities so in order to develop that faith was a difficult task. Then, infrastructure is not appropriate, the poor communication network in rural India adds up to his problems. Maintaining a supply chain management effectively was a difficult task too.
This all never stops Lalit to do something which he loves, he is living his dream of exploring different cultures and making money too. He is truly an inspiration for all the youth across the globe.
