Man devoid of a vision is analogous to a river without perennity, a thrush without flight and a stallion without a gallop, for it’s the vision that determines the destination as well as the journey to be undertaken. A vision that goes far wide as to the aurora borealis is the one that creates benchmarks. It is a vision that sets examples for the world to follow. And it is this exemplary vision that has propelled a young, dynamic entrepreneur Akash Nangia to venture into the hospitality industry with panache. Many analysts might call it a gutsy step, but for Akash, this is another step towards growth and diversification.
Akash, who served as the vice president of Zomato, a popular online restaurant search guide, is more of a business enthusiast, who gets enthralled with the governing dynamics of a business. At a time when his career and company were on a skyward trajectory, Akash decided to venture into the IT industry to bridge a gap that he felt existed. Under his aegis, his company SISL InfoTech is looking at a promising growth rate. But as they say, pioneers never rest. Of late Akash’s breadth of view gave him a fillip to step into a competitive hospitality sector.
Set out with a firm vision of catering to a different segment of customers than other start ups, The Golden Hotels has taken the hospitality sector by a storm. The group currently has acquired 3 already running 4-star hotel properties in Chandigarh, Colva and Calangute (Goa), and has plans to add to this portfolio other upcoming projects in Chandigarh, Lonavala near Pune and Bagha Beach in Goa. “Where our the counterparts are targeting an audience that has an inclination towards budget rooms, at the Golden Hotels our focus is on prioritizing customer’s comfort. Keeping in line with this idea, we have selected our properties very strategically”, said Jaswinder Singh, VP Operations at the Golden Hotels.
