Odisha’sStartup Wins on Global Platform

Bhubaneswar, 02nd May 2024( Odisha Samachar/Rajat Mohapatra )-Odisha’sstartup on the global stage, the success story of a middle-class boy from Bhubaneswar who defeated some of the most prestigious universities in the world. AnupPaikaray, Founder of Newrup Tech Solutions, a StartupOdisha-supported startup, is a recent graduate from Odisha University of Technology and Research, with a degree in Electronics and Instrumentation.

He was the winner of the Smartideathon contest organized by GITAM University in August 2023, for which he had the chance to attend the Boston immersion program at Northeastern University from March to April 2024. In Boston, his startup, Newrup Tech Solutions, participated in the flagship business presentation event called Pitchathon. Here, he competed against startups from some of the greatest universities in the world, including Harvard University and MIT Innovation Lab.

Initially, Anup feared how he would compete against these top competitors, but he gathered the courage. When he went on stage, the first word he said was “Jay Jagannath.” After a tough competition, he emerged as one of the winners, winning a cash prize of 2 lakhs and a trophy. Most importantly, he made India proud as he waved the Indian flag in front of all the foreign audiences, proving that Indian students are not inferior to anyone else.

In the past, AnupPaikaray and his startup have won many prestigious awards, such as Best student startup of the year 2023 by StartupOdisha under the department of MSME, Green Bengal Innovation Contest, 3M Young Innovator’s Award, AzimPremji Social Enterprise Award, and many more. We hope he continues rising in the future. He is also the recipient of NidhiPrayas from KIIT Technology Business Incubator and SISFS from AIC Nalanda.

This testament shows that you don’t have to be from a great university or a high-class background to be a winner. All you need is passion and persistence. The story of AnupPaikaray is proof of that and will inspire many other Indians to pursue entrepreneurship as a career.
