What does a Chauffeur do after dropping you at your office in the morning?

Akash, a 10 years experienced driver lives with his family of 5 members in a 10 x 10 room. He drives a black sedan for Mahendra Ji, a prominent government officer. Mahendra Ji's office is 20 minutes away from his residence. Akash usually picks Mahendra Ji at 10 AM and drops him at his office by 10:30 AM. Akash is an undergraduate who usually brings daily newspaper along with him. After parking the car in the allocated parking space, Akash reads the newspaper. He kills the time till 1 PM and after that he goes to Mahendra Ji's cabin delivering his lunch and bring back the empty smothered lunch back by 1:30 PM.

After this, he takes a nap when flies buzz all over him in the scorching heat. Then, he wakes up by 3 PM. Everyday he wonders when he will get a raise. Every time he raises this issue, he is assured and hike never happens. He constantly looks for ways to earn more money to support his family but he is unable to do so. He thinks of driving a cab but he is tied to the parking spot from 10:30 AM to 7 PM. Afterwards, he takes Mahendra Ji back home. After dropping Mahendra Ji home, he goes back to his room to his family with crushing hopes. And, his days are more or less the same.

India Launches 5G after 5 years

5G i.e. the fifth generation of network enables a new kind of network that is designed to connect virtually everyone and everything together including machines, objects, and devices.

5G wireless technology is meant to deliver higher multi-Gbps peak data speeds, ultra low latency, more reliability, massive network capacity, increased availability, and a more uniform user experience to more users. Higher performance and improved efficiency empower new user experiences and connects new industries.

Akash reads this news with joy and praises the Prime Minister of India. But, for him, increasing his livelihood by any means is an urgent thought. While he is in his island land, he wonders if he can drive a cab while sitting in that parking spot using the 5G Network. Can he even drive Mahendra Ji to work while sitting at his home and controlling the car at the comfort of his home?

He has read the news of various technologies that can make a car remote controlled. While the major companies are more focused on making self driving cars, he thought of building a simulator and a device which if fitted into a car would send essential inputs back to his car and would allow the car to be remotely controlled.

Ideas are cheap, implementation is costly

Akash wanted to test his dream hypothesis of building the dreamt simulator and device. Neither he can quit his job nor he had the right knowledge of the technologies. He searches for a technical partner and finds a company called Concept Catalyst. He agrees to their terms and conditions and gets the desired simulator and device built via a revenue share model.

After building out an MLP with the help of Concept Catalyst, Akash finally derives the courage to resign and focus full time on his dream project. While he lacked the technical knowledge, he was a pragmatic person who was well read. He hired 10 drivers in next 1 month and setup a company.

He offered Mahendra Ji the device at the lowest cost. After properly fitting the device into his car, a driver would sit in the simulator in the offices of Akash and drive him from his home to his office. Driver would then park the car and disconnect his simulator to drive other people off to their offices. As soon as the clock struck 7 in the evening, any driver from the Akash office would request access to Mahendra Ji's car and after getting the approval would drive him back home.

Talent hits a target no one else can hit

Mahendra Ji being the secretary in the Transport Department were very impressed with the service Akash was providing to him. He introduces Akash to some of his friends who later decides to invest into Akash company. With a successful funding round, Akash finally scales his company exponentially with the help of Concept Catalyst. He is now well settled and has purchased a Bungalow for his family. He has helped 100s of drivers and have doubled or tripled their income. He has made a chauffeur's job interesting. Now, within the comfort of a simulator assisted by AI, these drivers take people to their destinations in the lowest possible time.
