The journey to Websites ‘N’ More
Websites ‘N’ More was born in 2014 but the story starts in 2007 (In hindsight everything happens for a reason. The business is owned, managed and run by Divij Mehta, an Indian by birth but an Australian by choice. In 2007, a starry-eyed Divij came to the land down under to pursue a Masters in Applied Finance degree at Macquarie University. After successfully completing this in 2009, Divij went on to work with a boutique Investment bank as an intern, however, the GFC wasn’t really a desirable graduation present which left Divij very unsuccessful in securing a full-time role with leading banks.
For 2 years of trying to secure his dream role and juggling between part-time jobs, something didn’t feel right and instead entrepreneurship was on his mind. Not something new to him given that his father had been running a successful engineering firm in India for more than 3 decades.
2010 was the year! From a tiny studio in Newtown, Divij ventured into his first business and he named her Dealworkz. Dealworkz was a B2C website based on the Group Buying model that aimed to bring discounts to the public for a range of products and services. After working out the requirements of the business and convincing his father to get seed money, Divij built a team of programmers and online marketers in India who could help him realise his dream online.
2.5 years of a roller coaster ride, Dealworkz was an adrenaline pumping adventure complete with its ups and downs, risks and rewards, trials and tribulations that forced the man-child Divij to grow up to be about a 100! And in the end, when Dealworkz was sold, it was all worth it!
And then Websites ‘N’ More was born
What next? Equipped with a few too many grey hairs and the knowledge of running eCommerce websites including managing various aspects of it and a team of 6 PHP programmers based in India, Divij decided to sell digital solutions in the Australian market.
Getting clients onboard was surprisingly easy! Goodwill pays off in business, always!
