A Success Story::CampusHash-Startup Company

The origin of Campus Hash

Sanket Saurav and Rohit Tirkey two bright students of NIT Jamshedpur started CampusHash on December 19, 2012. Sanket had an interesting incident to share with starting up “We had a workshop by a tech group in our college, on web development. We saw the curriculum and the way those guys did the workshop. We were frustrated by the things, and more by what they taught.” Having been developers themselves they didn’t approve of this and reverted back that if the students start off their careers in Web without knowing the basics or any nitty-gritty of a web-app, they would never understand how the Internet works. Post this incident they conducted a survey and found out that around 80% of the student who attended such workshops did not pursued whatever was taught. The results were surprising for them and hence they decided to change it by organizing workshops in a correct manner. “We have been students ourselves, and we know how we would have liked a workshop to be. We are trying to do the same in each CampusHash workshop”-this is what they aimed. Two enthusiastic entrepreneurs and joint love for computers and Python! Sanket happens to be the speaker at every CampusHash workshop and Rohit manages activities such as Creating contents, strategies, marketing etc. Both of them share deep interest in computers and had adopted the same pretty early in their life. Although they have had experiences with other programming languages but it was in NIT that they interacted with python. And then there was no looking back from there onwards. Sanket and Rohit had been friends since first year of their B. Tech. and also possessed a band which had Sanket as guitarist and Rohit as a drummer. Sanket also happened to be one of the speakers at Pycon in 2013.

CampusHash provides workshops on quality web design and development using technologies like Google App Engine, HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, and Python. CampusHash aims to make a difference by improving the state of the workshops being organized for the students. Being a campus born company they received mixed responses from their fellow students and they also had received an office in the institute building by their department (Computer Science and Engineering), which was encouraging. Team CampusHash has now expanded and they have Anand Raman (a senior developer at Microsoft, US) as their mentor since 2013. They have organized various successful workshops in different colleges across the country. They believe that they can make a small difference to the students’ view of the internet through their workshops, how it works and how it should be working in hope of a cleaner, better, and more open Internet. Sanket and Rohit have shifted to Bangalore this year to take up CampusHash full time after completing their graduation.

Shining Spots

Prashant Sharma

He completed his under graduation from NIT in 2012 with a degree in Electrical and Electronics Engineering. It all began when he along with his friends started the first ever super mileage team “Revanta Super mileage” while in second year. Here he had the opportunities to learn and grow as a person. In his final year, while working on some venture he came to know of every platform and organizations in India that support and nurture entrepreneurship. He came to Bangalore after completing graduation to join Mu-Sigma and on the very next day he became a volunteer at India’s biggest platform for grass root level entrepreneurs “Headstart Network Foundation” Bangalore chapter. Prashant was a regular volunteer at Headstart Bangalore till November 2012, and in December’12, he got selected to go for Jagriti Yatra. He shot one mail to one of the most well known entrepreneur in India Pallav Nadhani (Founder, Fusion Charts) and got sponsored for the other half of Yatra which Jagriti didn’t cover. This led him to believe that good things will happen to you, if you are selfless and do things without expectations. Prashant continued his Volunteering and in the beginning of 2013, he became the City lead for Bangalore. By the end of year 2013, he had directly or indirectly impacted more than 2000 aspiring and existing entrepreneurs.

In August 2013, Prashant got selected as a delegate in the “Entrepreneurship” panel for Harvard University’s biggest conference in Dubai “HPAIR, Dubai”. He got sponsored by some of the most well known names in the community that included Mr Alok Kejriwal (Founder,Games2Win), Rohit Singal (Founder, Sourcebits) and a couple of more people. In the next couple of months he got selected as a delegate in the “Entrepreneurship” panel for Harvard University’s main conference at Harvard University. In the very next month he got selected as a fellow at “Young India Fellowship” (One of India’s most respected fellowships) 2014-2015 with a significant scholarship. And in the same month he got selected as one of the 40 fellows from across the world selected for Tim Draper’s “Draper University” at Silicon Valley with a scholarship of 3500 USD.

Prashant believes that volunteering and doing well, selflessly might be one of the best thing you can do in life. He still needed 6500 USD to make his dream come true. This is where people in the Start-up circuit, from CEO’s of some of the most well known organizations to people whom he had impacted came along to support and made it happen. So much so that while he was at Valley, Prashant managed to raise another 1000 USD from a well known investor there. Prashant says-“good things come to you if you believe. For every project that I have done till now, I have always had the support and blessing of people who believe in my dreams and are ready to stretch themselves to make it happen for me. All this happened because for almost 2 years I only knew one thing that I had to learn from people and experience as much as I can and contribute with all heart to the ecosystem. Everything that happened in between happened not because I was running after it, but because it came to me though Karma. From building a solid network with the who’s who in the Indian Business environment to getting selected for some of the most reputed programs across the world, everything happened because I always put forward the case of my experience with Volunteering and being a lead at India’s biggest platform for grass root level entrepreneurs. To Conclude I would say, it requires immense courage and belief in oneself to follow your heart, more often than not you will feel like going back to living a normal and secure life, but always remember “Greater the Risks you take, greater will the Reward be in Life”.”

Lokesh Khandelwal

Branch: Computer Science and Engineering
Batch: 2010
Companies: Works Application Japan, Amazon, Bangalore Samsung

Lokesh has had the experience to taste almost all different kinds of interviews; be it a code intensive off -campus of Works Applications, Skype interview of start-ups like OptumSoft, regular hirers like Samsung or a hardcore dream company like Amazon; And it was quiet an endeavor to be a part of all, as it proved to be very lucrative and diverse. He was already involved in an off -campus placement process of Works Applications, Tokyo in his fifth semester. It had three online rounds on various topics of computer science like data structures, algorithms, networking and database management. The top sixty students in the country were called for the national finals in Delhi which had a thirty hour long coding intensive contest on Artificial Intelligence, and Lokesh got the fourth position and was selected for internships. It was a tremendous opportunity and he accepted at the drop of a hat. After that Lokesh was also selected by Samsung. But to call a spade a spade, for him, the most awaited company was Amazon. It was a dream slot company. It started off again with the Pre Placement Talk where the company introduced itself and gave the compensation details. PPT was followed by an online written examination which had twenty multiple choice technical questions and two programming question. The written examination was followed by four back to back one on one interviews. Lokesh shared his experience –“The interviewers were all good and made me comfortable in asking questions about my internship experience; projects etc. and then went on with some technical questions. The questions were all from Data Structures and Algorithms and I had to code them with the minimum complexities, both in time and space, to get it correct. Roughly three to four questions were asked in each of the rounds and each round lasted about an hour or so. They announced the results by giving a T-Shirt with quotes “Hired by Amazon” and I was lucky enough to cut the mustard. So overall, it was a wonderful experience for me, something that I would remenish and cherish throughout my life. I am thankful to all who have been a part of my journey in achieving my dream job, more so my parents who have always been very benevolent and altruistic, my teachers for their continuous guidance and my friends for being close to me and supporting me at all moments of ups and downs throughout the placement process.”22
