Coming from a small town and hindi-medium educational background, he faced numerous hurdles all through his college days. Despite the challenges, he managed to start his small internet-based business while in college and later moved on to forming Xs Corporations in 1999. He later sold this to Lotus Interworks and continued working with them for a year. In December 2000, Sharma founded One97, a company which provides a platform for delivering mobile value-added services.

In this video, Vijay very candidly shares the highs and lows of his student and entrepreneurial life and this video is a must watch for all the passionate people who believe in creating something.
