Story of Clean Car Rental (Start-Up)

Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton

Mr. Sachin Kate is the founder and CEO of Clear Car Rental (Start-Up) and the world had no clue about the magnitude of impact of what a 28-year-old could do. Clear Car is just another car rental company in India but there are a few reasons why its really stands out than others.

The man has a vision to share…….

Mr. Sachin Kate storms from the small town of Maharashtra where the idea of opening up is pretty much extra-terrestrial. The area where Sachin dwelled doesn’t have educating accessible after 4thgrade but Sachin’s parents were fixed on offering him with all the needed education and hence sent him to a friend’s place in a nearby region from where a school was more accessible.

Always engrossed by computers, Sachin took benefit of the situation and progressed to become a computer instructor in one year. After 12th, Sachin shifted to Aurangabad for higher studies along with a part time job in a travel agency. This job gave him his initial exposure in travel business. In a part time salary, he was working full time because slowly he started getting access to computer and could show his computer skills. He was pursuing his BSc. in computers and he had an inclination towards how SEO worked. This came in handy for the travel agency he was working for.

We’ve seen companies being built from small towns and this is yet another success story from a place you’d not expect a start-up to scale from- Aurangabad. As always there are pros and cons:

Cons: No support or exposure, immature market, poor infrastructure, no capital

Pros: Cheap talent (provided you know how to hire and train), that extra ounce of will to succeed.

Gaining in confidence, Sachin tried moving out of his zone in terms of location but his family wasn’t very comfortable. He decided to come back and take up web development assignments. He focused on the travel and hotel segment and has developed more than 600 websites till now along with his team. This is how Info Gird and Net Mantle had come into existence.

Building a company from small city in India which is Aurangabad.

Sachin believed in what he was doing and his grit to be successful opened up doors for him.

And then came in the big break.

Sachin was always associated with the travel and hospitality industry and was aware of the needs of the industry. “The technology was being developed for airlines, hotels booking etc., but last mile connectivity which is mostly road travel in tourism sector was in a way neglected,” says Sachin.

And thus was launched Clear Car Rental in July 2010. This was the time when the Meru Radio cab service and a couple of others had settled in.

Clear Car Rentals offer packages for both local and outstation travel. CCR provide car rental services to 150 cities within India and all this without a penny of funding.
