He started in his hometown that was Darbhanga, Bihar ,and delivered products to his relatives and friends.
Majaz remembered his first order that he delivered to walk about 3kms since he had no bike or cycle at that time and made a profit of Rs 5 on that order. and said that there was also a time when he had to go against his relatives since they did not understand my vision and wanted me to just finish my education and land a job but even in that time he had the support of his mom which was a constant boost that kept his going.
In 2020, He started expanding his business to the capital of Bihar i.e Patna and one of his friends sent the application for central government funding for budding start-ups, where he applied for it and after 3 rounds of interviews, and 2 months of residential training in Bihar Agricultural University (Sabour) Fresh got selected for receiving a grant from Agricultural ministry of India and farmer welfare department.
During the training period at Bihar Agriculture University, he was also a first-year student at the University of engineering and management Kolkata. At that time, the college started online classes due to covid which was a blessing in disguise since it helped him to manage my training along with college classes with ease.
“Post COVID since then I shifted to the college came back to offline mode and going to college for classes was made compulsory it was tough for me to manage both the business and my college life together, but even in that my friends came for my help providing me with the class material and helping me cope with my studies also the teachers were very supportive and always looked out for me in their classes and helped me whenever I had a problem be it regarding college, my business or personal issues, more than teachers they acted as my friends and peers. Recently I, have also received the term sheet from an angel investor for my business.” Majaz Hasan, Founder of Freshsharp Said.
