It was the year of 2009, the world was hit by the global recession. Aslam and Anil, sadly witnessed how developers and IT professionals in India were not valued, respected, or empowered. On the other hand, companies and businesses in the western world who trusts the Indian engineering talent were frustrated with the lack of great “customer services”.
Aslam’s problem-solving skills combined with Anil’s servant leadership made the perfect partnership. This led to the foundation of Multidots. They started with two-hundred dollars and two dots. Since 2009, Multidots has grown into a multi-million dollar business with more than a hundred dots – Multidots.
There is one funny-and-famous piece of the story that you can’t miss. It involves a deadline, traffic-lights, and a motorbike.
Aslam and Anil were struggling to name the business. Several days later, on May 1, 2009, they hit a hard deadline. It was the last day to give their lawyer a business name to register. As they kept throwing names, they kept coming to the “dot“. They were intrigued by the word “dots” which they knew to be small but mighty. Every shape and object is formed from dots. Even the web can’t be complete without a dot as in, website dot com.
Aslam and Anil were on their way to the lawyer’s office on Aslam’s motor-cycle. They stopped at a traffic light in the streets of Ahmedabad (the business capital of Gujarat, India). It just hit them. Aslam shouted with excitement, “How about two-dots?” Anil liked it but it felt too limiting to him. He knew they needed a name that’s not limiting the scale and sound of it. Then Anil blurted out, “Multidots!”.
