“We always contribute to clients’ ideas and try to move them to the next level. Helping them reach new heights of success is our ultimate goal.”
Avkash Kakdiya (Founder & CEO, iTechNotion)
We often hear “Trust in dreams, for in them is hidden the gate to eternity”. Avkash Kakdiya, the Founder and CEO of iTechNotion was destined to touch the sky with his self-created and thoughtfully painted wings of entrepreneurship. Avkash always dreamt of running and managing a business since his school days.
He completed his BSC in Biotechnology but destiny had chosen a different path for him. To chase his dreams, he decided to pursue Masters in Computer Application (MCA) from Gujarat University that advanced his theoretical and practical knowledge about computer application development.
His appetency to start a venture of his own led to the creation of an IT Solutions company, iTechNotion in 2011 during his college days. After completing his Masters, he started working in a small office at home with his first employee. When a business built with blood, sweat, and tears started reaping benefits, Avkash never looked back.
Today, with an experience of more than a decade, iTechNotion has dealt with 2000+ customers worldwide and completed 5000+ projects with a team of 75+ professionals, and has branches in India, Australia, and the United Kingdom.
THE HURDLES FACED
Avkash founded iTechNotion in Anand, Gujarat but he decided to shift the company to an economic and industrial hub Ahmedabad in 2014 to scale new heights but things didn’t go as planned.
“At that time I had 90% revenue coming in from only 3 clients. Unfortunately, I lost all my clients as their projects finished within the first 2 months of shifting. The expenses increased by 200% and revenue fell down by 90%,” Avkash recalled.
The brain suggested quitting the passion while the heart was pushing Avkash to fight back and conquer. The transition to trusting the heart was very challenging and emotionally draining.
Life’s problems wouldn’t be called ‘hurdles’ if there wasn’t a way to get over them. Avkash refueled himself, changed strategies, and started focusing on bringing in more clients. Ultimately, his relentless efforts helped him bring everything back to normal.
A Win-Win situation is the best of both worlds. Avkash, as CEO of the company, is a strong believer in creating win-win situations. As he believes, a win-win philosophy for clients, collaborators, and employees is always worth the effort.
“When you come to the fore with the attitude of helping others and assuring good quality services to them, you immediately compound the influence, effectiveness, hard work, and results of everyone involved. Furthermore, win-win decisions significantly nurture and strengthen relationships,” Avkash mentioned.

AVKASH’S DEFINITION OF SUCCESS
According to Avkash, success means attaining satisfaction. For him, it is a peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing that you did your best for your clients.
“When you are satisfied, you are successful,” Avkash remarked.
THE MOTIVATIONAL FACTOR
Avkash finds his motivation in entrepreneurial legend Steve Jobs. He is intrigued by Job’s philosophy to invent products that are at the intersection of art, technology, intuitiveness, and design.
Avkash also credits his father who helped him develop inordinate entrepreneurial skills such as decision making, adaptability, vision, and risk-taking capabilities.
While earning profits is always an ever-present stress, visualizing what to achieve through your business five years down the line is also very important. Avkash has that vision in his mind’s eye. He envisions creating employment for over 1000 employees in the next five years.
