Odisha’s nano-entrepreneur Rajesh opens fruit drink brand ‘Oh! Chill

With Swakalpa’s help, Rajesh launched Oh! Chill, which secured FSSAI registration, crafted winning business strategies, and established a brand identity that resonated with customers

“I envision making Oh! Chill the most popular Odia fruit drink brand loved by India,” says Rajesh with his eyes shining with determination and purpose.

Rajesh wasn’t a typical cubicle dweller. Sure, his Bengaluru tech job was comfortable, but his heart ached for his Odia roots. He dreamt of returning home, not just for himself, but to create opportunities for his community members. So, with determination in his heart, he traded spreadsheets for a shot at his passion: launching a delicious Odia fruit drink brand called Oh! Chill.

But the road to success wasn’t easy for him. Rajesh faced fierce competition. He felt lost, battling a lack of marketing knowledge and the ever-present struggle of getting his product noticed on crowded store shelves. His dreams of expansion were dampened by financial constraints and the challenge of navigating the complex world of distributors, while bigger companies loomed large. To top it off, fumbling with packaging and branding, due to his inexperience, took a toll on sales. Discouraged but not defeated, Rajesh was on the verge of giving up when a beacon of hope emerged: Swakalpa.

Swakalpa became Rajesh’s lifeline. He discovered Swakalpa through an entrepreneurship awareness program conducted by the team in his vicinity. He immediately enrolled himself in a life-changing 100-hour entrepreneurship training. From business planning and managing his finances to the magic of marketing and building strong customer relationships, a whole new world of business opened up for him. Each session was a step closer to his dream of not just a successful business, but one that would uplift his community.

Rajesh’s dedication shone through, and he proudly received his certificate post-training. But Swakalpa’s support didn’t stop there. The program paired him with specialised mentors who offered personalized guidance to him during the crucial initial stages. Weekly meetings and hands-on help became Rajesh’s secret weapon. He gained invaluable insights, learned to navigate challenges and seize opportunities he wouldn’t have seen coming on his own.

With Swakalpa’s help, Rajesh’s dream became a reality. He launched Oh! Chill, his very own fruit drink brand. Swakalpa didn’t just stop cheering him on from the sidelines. It helped him secure the FSSAI registration, craft winning business strategies, design eye-catching labels that screamed “Oh! Chill,” and establish a brand identity that resonated with customers. The program even ensured his packaging materials were top-notch, leaving no room for quality slips.
