Ankush Chauhan is a 16-year-old youth who studies in class 10th from Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh. It currently has a Dog Media – a social media platform that has made 2 startups before hosting your podcast in the market. Later, it sold him as a freelancing project.

Currently, he is working on his CryptoKaro startup as a sole builder.

Ankush Chauhan started his coding journey in the initial days of his 8th grade when he attended a workshop from an IITD grad talking about how they scale their software business from the comfort of their home, which spikes his interest in learning to code.

His interest, later, became his hobby and he started spending most of his time learning about it. Meanwhile, during the pandemic, he started freelancing in web and app development, he was able to get his first client after a long wait of 8 weeks.

The initial idea come up when he was working as a freelancer and one of his clients wants to make a project related to solidity (a programming language that helps you to build apps on top of Ethereum blockchain),

He almost got rejected that project because he hadn’t known of blockchain and any of its applications back then but, he quickly revert his mind and ask him to make that offer.

The force that drives him is to create a brand that carries his ethos over the years. Secondly, Is to explore his curiosity about the world because jobs would always make them just do one brainless thing over and over.

As he still believes in the ideology of Steve Blank, as he defines “startup” as “an organization in search of a business model.” It is not a small version of a large company; it is a completely different entity that doesn’t yet know what its future customers really want and what the product’s design and revenue model will be.

CryptoKaro – Challenges Faced

Starting out they are so sure of their idea and can’t wait to take the plunge into the entrepreneurial world. That certainty blinds him, and they don’t test whether there is a demand for what they are offering.

CryptoKaroAdvice to College Graduates

Ankush Chauhan thinks the best burning desire is ambition. If you wanna build patience just learn to code and just like everything, coding also has a compound graph, It’s a mixture of nervousness and frustration with a very strong motivation pushing you to overcome all barriers in your path.

And, with no-code coming in, it’s become even more dangerous because now you see non-coders also build products this usually created an outcome-oriented mindset that he wants to get to this app as fast as possible, and when you didn’t condense the progress and start pivoting.

And what he have found is that long-term thinking is the biggest benefit which you can take to increase your potential. Potential is somewhat kind of your identity, so your identity right now and maybe five years down the line is that to be an ambitious person and then try to do as many things as possible right now to build more resources to get to that ambition.
