We had the pleasure of interviewing Jai Karan Walia, founder of ‘Clever Corp’ who has aced in the business realm and established his firm foot in the industry by showing exponential growth within a couple of years of his company’s inception in Dubai, UAE. The young entrepreneur from Punjab, India, has worked hard towards building a strong brand and has raced ahead of others in no time. How did he achieve such soaring heights of success at this age is what we want to know, and any secret mantras to success by the man himself would be an add-on which would be worth its weight in gold. We sat down with him to know more about his life’s journey and what it took to make it to this point of success, which would seem almost unachievable for many of his contemporaries.
Tell us a bit about yourself, your initial days and your journey.
I was born and brought up in Punjab, India, and was an average high school student wanting to get good grades and graduate from a good university. This brought me to Dubai in 2011, when I joined the esteemed BITS Pilani to complete my mechanical engineering. After that, I enrolled myself for Masters at Hult business school and passed out with flying colours.
How did you jump onto the entrepreneurial bandwagon?
In spite of having done exceptionally well in my educational journey, I knew that I was not living up to my full potential. After having worked as an intern initially and then in a full time job, I realized that my calling was something else, that is entrepreneurship, and eventually I decided to quit my job and start on my own. After some initial hiccups, I finally found out how to ‘crack the code’ and paved my way towards success.
What is the nature of your business, can you please elaborate on that?
‘Clever Corp’ helps in setting up businesses for companies or start-ups who want to establish their presence in Dubai, UAE. We offer consultations and advisory services for finding the right place, partner and various others important things associated with setting up a new business apart from looking after legal and immigration related services. Everything right from documentation, paperwork, licenses, permissions and many more complicated procedures are looked after by the company to make the business establishment experience easy and hassle-free.
What have been your achievements, and where do you go from here?
Clever Corp has won the prestigious ‘Indo Arab summit for best Business Setup in UAE in 2019’, which was a big achievement for us. We are spreading our wings globally and are on the verge of expanding our offices in Abu Dhabi, China and Nigeria. Apart from this core business, we have also laid our hands in real estate and tax consulting business which have also received positive response and are on its way towards growth.
