In today’s episode, I talk to Suumit Shah of Dukaan.
Suumit is a software engineer from Bangalore, India—AKA the Silicon Valley of India!!
When the pandemic started and people everywhere were looking for ways to sell online, Suumit noticed a BIG problem. There were tons of websites to help people start online stores but NONE of them were smartphone friendly.
So he created Dukaan in 48-hours. (Y’all know I’m a BIG fan of building a business in a weekend!!)
Then he listed it on AppSumo to get customers and make $130k.
Dang. Good work Suumit!!

In this conversation, you’ll enjoy 3 BIG things:
- What people DON’T know about India’s entrepreneurship scene
- Suumit’s biggest life lesson for people to succeed and stand out like he has
- And how Suumit built and launched a million-dollar business in a weekend
