Feelsofts- Digitalizing Rural India

There are a handful of youth who wish to help the nation for a faster digitalization, by going to the roots of it which lie in the hands of Rural India. With limited access to the learning resources which would help them understand and use technology in their day to day life, they tend to give up on living practical experiences of technology. By this, it means that even if the schools or colleges have "Computer Sciences" as a subject, it would be of no use until it is practically applied post qualification.
Meet Abhishek Dhawan, founder of Feelsofts, who has decided to develop the Rural India by means of software and web applications. He has helped business in small towns and villages realize how easy business processes become with the help of Software and Technology.

Founder of Feelsofts- Abhishek Dhawan

Abhishek Dhawan, the founder of Feelsofts, holds a bachelor degree from Pune University. He was a college drop out by choice in the initial years and on completing his graduation he decided to develop the rural masses by software and web applications. "We strongly believe that women in rural India are living in a regressive society as a girl completes her education but doesn't get the training she needs to go to a big company and work. Eventually, it ends up with marriage." They wish to revolutionize this and make women more independent.

Journey till now:

Five years back, Feelsofts was started from home with a team of 3 people and has grown to be the one with 15+ products. He understood the reason why rural India was not technology friendly and decided to work on those reasons. He implemented regional languages in the software, easy GUI for use. All the products developed were ensured to be on standard guidelines so that it could be accepted globally. At the initial stage, the team had to go to people personally and show them a demo of the software to make them understand it's need for their businesses. 

For passionately helping the rural India choose the digital path, it is a WOW! to Feelsofts.
