Webskitters Technology Solutions Pvt. Ltd., a leading web design and development company, has won the prestigious National MSME Award 2022 in the Export-Oriented Service sector, by none other than the Indian Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi. The company that was established in 2010, climbed up the ladder of success, quite quickly than any of its competitors. The reason behind this success was the hard work, continuous effort, and dedication that its team had put in.
Within three years of its existence, the company received the Fastest 500 Asia Pacific Award 2013 from the Thailand Government, and ISO 9001:2015 certification. Since then, there are many certifications and awards that the company received. It includes the Fastest Growing Indian IT Company Excellence Award 2014, Pride of India Award 2015 from the Indian Government, Best IT Place to Work from NDTV- Brands Academy, Entrepreneur of the Year, Bengal Pride Award 2021, India 500 Most Promising Award 2021, India 500 CEO Award 2021, India’s Growth Champions 2022 by The Economic Times, High-Growth Company Asia-Pacific 2022 by The Economic Times, Clutch Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies 2022, and National MSME Award 2022.
Known for its quality, Webskitters, made a huge impact in the market since its inception and has also brought about revolutionary changes with its out-of-the-box creativity and exceptional innovativeness.
What today has emerged as a National MSME Award Winner 2022 (Webskitters), was actually a brainchild of a visionary leader, Mr. Atanu Sarkar. The achievements and remarkable recognition that the company has received, are the result of the hard work and effort that the CEO has put in.
The accomplishments that the company is savoring today have been built over the hardship and struggle that Mr. Sarkar faced in turning his dreams into a reality.
Atanu Sarkar was always a mediocre candidate in his student life. But he had a sharp mind that helped him grasp everything he saw and learnt. He was also deeply interested in sports activities, and took part in them frequently. His brilliance amazed his teachers back then, but his academic reports never justified it. Mr. Sarkar today mentions that he has no qualms over his academic results as he thinks not his number but his intelligence and learning capability is what counts the most!
After he completed his Bachelor of Engineering in Instrumentation Technology in 2003, he joined Dell (Hyderabad). It was his first job and like other individuals, he too was very excited. However, he soon realized that he wants to achieve something big in his life, and regular jobs and employment are not what he desires. But having experience was also a mandate for a clear understanding of the sector and walking towards his dream.
With this realization he switched to Tech Mahindra (Kolkata), followed by IBM and RS Software. Working under and with experts, he learned various aspects of the IT sector and the market.
It was in 2010 that he dropped his flourishing career, which was at its peak, and decided to venture into the uncharted paths of entrepreneurship.
He desired to opt out of bringing a salaried employee to being his boss. His desire accelerated his decision to become an entrepreneur and it was then that “Webskitters” came into existence. With no certainty of success and no godfather to guide him, he still did not lose his confidence and was determined to make his brainchild a globally-renowned name.
The company came into its official existence in 2012 as a proprietorship and in 2013 it became Pvt. Ltd. It was one of the first milestones that of the company and since then there was no looking back. In its initial years, the company only had a team of 4 to 5 people. All of them were fresh graduates, having no knowledge of the industry and the business. Mr. Sarkar was the sole person on the team with experience in the industry. There were many speculations about the venture and its success.
The sole thing that let the then small yet a core team of Webskitters continue was their trust in the vision of Mr. Sarkar and their efforts. Although the company lacked the practical experience in generating business, reaching out to customers, or increasing sales, they decided to continue with their venture and put in all their efforts to start gaining knowledge and experience in the different sectors of the business. Today, all of them are holding a designated place in the company, forming the management!
It proves that Mr. Atanu Sarkar had an eye for the people who can make a difference. He knows how to hand-pick the talent from the market, and that’s how he has formed his current team of 400+ individuals.
Now, standing tall as a leading IT company with innovativeness at its core, Webskitters is climbing high in the rugged terrains of success and is willing to make a drastic change in the IT industry with its specific approach and quality.
Under the leadership of Mr. Atanu Sarkar, the growth of the company is multifold. Having a visionary like him at the apex has allowed the business to focus on the different aspects of the business and expand it further.
Starting from a small office in Birati, a locality in the North 24 Paraganas to acquiring three office spaces in Salt Lake, Sector-V, the transition didn’t happen overnight. It was the result of a continuous effort by Mr. Sarkar and his team.
The growth rate of the company is unrestricted. It is now opening its branches in Durgapur and Chennai, to tap the potential and expand its horizon in the market. With its immense evolution rate, the company has a promising future, ahead!
From the owner of a small company with 5 employees, to the owner of a globally-renowned and National MSME Award winning company with 400+ employees- Atanu Sarkar has handheld Webskitters to an unimaginable position in the market. As a parent nurture his child, Mr. Sarkar has done the same for Webskitters. And it is under his wings that the company has received tremendous accolades and various awards, certifications and recognitions.
In 2010, our company came into existence. It was in 2011 that we bagged the Fortune 100 project from Mercedes Benz. This was our first major project. Mr Sarkar had by then given a proper training and guidance to his team, which led to this project’s acquirement.
It was since within a year from its inception that Webskitters started to grew under Atanu Sarkar. By this time, we learned new ways to overcome hurdles and became more aware about our abilities. With diverse projects in hand, we started to get a distinctive identity. We worked hard and kept looking for new ways to improve.
By 2012, we began working on various technologies that led to our company receiving further limelight and a name for its proficient work. With the addition of new members to the Webskitters family, we started having team outings for a better employer-employee relationship. Our CEO made sure that all the team members worked together in a collaborative and understanding way. To make that happen, we included team picnics and tours to appreciate our team. This was specifically important for a better work environment and relaxation outside of work. We also launched our first office in Birati, where the member strength also grew. By the end of 2012, we shifted to a larger space in Baisakhi.
2013 was a year of astounding achievements for Webskitters. We bagged our first Fastest 500 Asia Pacific Award 2013 from Thailand Government. This was a moment of utmost joy for every member of our company as the immense hard work started showing results. Seeing such results, we received the ISO 9001:2015 certification. This meant we gained the label of a quality management organization and that we provide the best customer satisfaction. By getting this certification, we gained the trust of our clients and went on to spread our wings gradually.
The year 2014 became one of the first, huge, turning points for Webskitters. We received the prestigious Fastest Growing Indian IT Company Excellence Award. This motivated us to do even better in the coming years. In this year, we also employed more people in our company, crossing the mark of 50 employees. Webskitters established the second office in Kolkata. This was an exciting moment for all of us and we wanted to maintain the growth rate.
In 2015, Webskitters secured another landmark. We received the Pride of India Award 2015 from the Government of India. Webskitters also received the Best IT Place to Work from NDTV – Brands Academy in the same year. We saw success coming our way speedily and made sure that we maintained a status of high quality for every project coming our way. Along with our recognition, our team strength was also mounting high, as we reached 100+ members this year.
The next year, i.e., in 2016, we saw bigger changes for Webskitters. We moved to a bigger office in Kolkata’s busiest IT hub. Our team moved to a 10,000 square feet space and officially crossed the 100-employee benchmark. This was also a year when we got the CMMI Level 3 certification. This meant that our company delivered their work with full efficiency consisting of streamlined methods and that we tackled every obstacle. This certification also meant that our company is defined by stability and world-class work.
2017 and 2018 were great years for Webskitters. In terms of growth, we set up our first office in the USA, in 2017 and had our first overseas employee who handled that office. Our happiness increased even more as we added another title for our firm- the Entrepreneur of The Year by Silicon India Magazine. In 2018, Webskitters Technology Solutions Pvt Ltd started its office in the UK. This expansion meant having more clients and more work. Hence, apart from our employees increasing in India, the number of employees in the overseas branch grew as well.
In the year 2019, we now had over 200+ dedicated employees working for our company. This was a huge change in comparison to when we started with only 10 employees in 2010. We celebrated this moment graciously along with the fact that Webskitters set up the first UK office in London, this year itself.
The transition between the end of 2019 and the beginning of 2020 was the most frightening yet crucial moment in not just Webskitters’ timeline, but world history as well. The Covid-19 virus hits the world and affects millions of lives. In India, our honorable Prime Minister announces the lockdown in March 2019. This meant corporate offices shutting down and working from home. But Webskitters handled this challenge seamlessly and still recruited 75+ employees this year. This was quite appreciative in a time when people were losing jobs at a fast pace. Our company kept climbing the ladder swiftly in the coming years.
Still, under the shadows of the pandemic, Webskitters kept flourishing in their field. We got several awards that encouraged us to do more. We received the Bengal Pride Award 2021, India 500 Most Promising Award 2021, India 500 CEO Award 2021, and Clutch Award 2021. Owing to Covid-19, we started providing free Covid-19 vaccination for our employees and their family members. Our team also started providing permanent medical benefits for all the employees.
The year 2022 opened several new doors for Webskitters Technology Solutions Pvt Ltd, and we added a few more awards and titles. During the Covid-pandemic, when many companies were closing down, and people were suffering to survive, we were growing by leaps and bounds. We received India’s Growth Champions 2022 by The Economic Times, High Growth Company Asia-Pacific 2022 by The Economic Times, and Clutch Top 100 Fastest Growing Companies 2022. In June 2022, it was a year to celebrate the most prestigious award given by our Honorable Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. He handed over the National MSME Award 2022 (the first position). Our CEO, Mr. Atanu Sarkar flew to Delhi to receive this award face to face. In the same year, we secured two new premises for our office and expanded our company. This year, we had more than 400 members on board, and within 6 months, we received 10 prestigious awards.
We believe in high-quality work with high efficiency in our work. The team’s dedication and deliverance speak for themselves and will continue to do so in the coming years. Our CEO, Atanu Sarkar motivated the team continually so that the team put in their best efforts for work.
Since the last decade, the Micro, Small, and Medium Enterprises (MSMEs) in India have experienced tremendous growth. It has also contributed significantly to the economy of the country. Through the entrepreneurial efforts, the number of items produced in the country and the quality of services delivered has improved significantly, which hitherto were imported or outsourced before. The efforts are reaping positive results for the nation as new variants (of products/services) developed in India are characterized by additional attributes and unique features, which are becoming popular in the market rapidly.
The MSMEs are also proving their worth in delivering ideal services, which are capable of solving a multitude of user problems. Over time it has been realized that the Indian entrepreneurs are very creative in their approach and have turned India into an “innovation hub” globally.
To encourage such innovative initiatives and promote their spirits, the Indian Ministry of MSME organizes the National MSME Award. It recognizes the contributions of the entrepreneurs and encourages them by conferring awards at the national level.
It is an excellent move by the Indian government, which has encouraged many young minds to venture into entrepreneurship and taste success and recognition at a higher level.
The National MSME Award 2022 ceremony was a part of the Udyami Bharat program that was held at the Vigyan Bhawan in New Delhi on the 30th of June, 2022. The event was graced by the presence of the Prime Minister, Narendra Modi.
It was in this event that our CEO, Mr. Atanu Sarkar, received the National MSME Award 2022 in the Export-Oriented Service sector by the PM, Narendra Modi. Being an honorable moment of pride, the award has also motivated our team, filling them with new enthusiasm and energy.
