Akash Nangia and Arjun Mittal Riding High on ‘Start up India, Stand up India’

, Indian Hour

There is not even an ounce of doubt that the last few years have seen inceptions of large number of start ups.
Even Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphasized on entrepreneurship and job creations. Technology, innovation and digital media have been at the core of such inceptions. And running ahead in the league of such start-ups is SISL InfoTech, started by young entrepreneurs Akash Nangia and Arjun Mittal. In a very short span of time the duo has made a staggering progress. They have come a long way since their days of college in Shri Ram College of Commerce, Delhi University, where Akash majored in Economics and Arjun graduated in Commerce. They both had their fair share of individual success before partnering up. While Akash Nangia worked as the Vice President with Zomato, Arjun worked as a consultant with McKinsey.
“I and Arjun were enjoying our respective jobs but we always had this knack for exploring. The timing was perfect. India was getting prepped up for a digital revolution and we both realized that we had to materialize the idea that we had brewed up together; providing Digital and Web Security Solutions. We started SISL InfoTech in 2012 and since then the progress has been more than satisfactory. It is even more encouraging when the prime minister lends a fillip to the start ups. PM Modi’s ‘Start up India, Stand up India’ is an exemplary message. This would propel the entrepreneur concealed within people to come out of the closet and innovate. “, said Akash Nangia.
SISL has been immensely successful. Apart from being partners with global giants like EMC, Red Hat, IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, HP, VM Ware, Symantec, Trendmicro, F5 Networks etc., the company is contributing for MyGov campaign which is an integral part of the Digital India program initiated by Narendra Modi, along with other key projects in public sector like DMRC, NGN with BSNL and many more.
