An 18-year-old, who had just passed out from 12th std had an aspiration pursuing an engineering career. Despite the odds being stacked against him, he pursued what he always dreamt of. This has been the highlight of his career, when pushed against the wall, Burhan has responded with extreme resilience. From pursuing engineering to founding the mazing store, Burhans’s journey as an entrepreneur has been exhilarating.
Burhan was the first in his family to enroll in an engineering program. No one initially believed he could, yet despite the challenges, he pursued his aim of becoming an engineer. Burhan enrolled at a Coimbatore-based Engineering institution to study Computer Science in 2016.
In 2019, he participated in a 36-hour Hackathon (Programming Competition) in which 3300 teams competed. His team outperformed a lot of teams and was selected for subsequent rounds of the competition and ended up among the top 25 teams.
His team was also rewarded with a pre-placement offer in the 3rd year of engineering becoming the only team in his college to achieve this feat. He was also awarded by the college and the computer science department for their amazing performance.
The placement offer boosted his confidence and gave him a crucial lesson: if one is motivated, one can achieve any objective, no matter how difficult.
When lockdown hit the country like a storm in 2020, there was a severe unemployment issue, and during those trying times, Burhan consulted his brother, also a founder of the company, to start something afresh. Something that would not only help small businesses but also the entire nation. The idea of “Mazing” came to life.
After long discussions with his brother, he started working on the idea to make the mazing store a reality. Burhan relocated to Kolkata in order to devote his whole attention to this undertaking. Moving to such a far city was a hard decision for him and his family. But as the saying goes “There are no shortcuts to any place worth going”, Burhan took the hard step and it paid off.
The choice to go to Kolkata altered his life forever, and Mazing’s evolution began.
