Sheikh Asif – An Inspiration for Young Entrepreneurs – Khabarhub | Mega Mediakw

KATHMANDU: Sheikh Asif from Srinagar in the Kashmir Valley was a high school dropout who went on to become not only an entrepreneur but also the founder and CEO of Thames Infotech, a UK-based company.

Asif, a brilliant student, had to drop out of school midway through financial problems. However, he continued to learn about computers while working at various businesses in his area.

To reach this stage, Asif has experienced many ups and downs in his life. Asif’s struggle began in 2000 when his father fell ill and his illness remains a mystery to them to this day.

These circumstances forced Asif to say goodbye to his educational career and to look for a job at the age of 15.

Asif is a high school dropout. Financial problems prevented him from continuing his studies, but he never gave up on his dream of becoming a technician.

By 2014, Asif was financially stable enough to start his own business. But he was unlucky again due to the 2014 floods in Kashmir. “At that point he gave up for a while, but his family was my biggest motivation.”

Raising awareness of IT degree courses in India was the main reason for Asif to come back from Manchester, UK in 2018. Most students only prefer medical and non-medical subjects.

In his first interview, Asif didn’t get what he wanted. He got the chance to work at Thames Infotech for a very low wage. But he was delighted at the opportunity to show his talent, which later became his interest, and he became the owner of the same company where he was an employee.

He traveled from Kashmir to Delhi and from Delhi to London in search of a job in web design. After he worked for a company in London for a month, the company owner no longer wanted him. He wandered the streets of London in a state of despair. This time it was the same company that owned Asif.

Asif has received numerous awards and has written three books, Digitization in Business, Starting a Business and Online Business Ideas. Apart from business and courses, Sheikh Asif has conducted many hacking awareness programs and assisted over 300 companies and individuals to take back control of their hacked social media accounts.

Sheikh Asif started his first job with a salary of Rs. 1500 and due to his hard work and dedication he is now the CEO and Founder of Thames Infotech, a UK based company with a valuation of Rs. 5 crores and earning Rs. 2 up to 3 lakhs.

The books are about digitization in business, how to start a business and 27 online business thoughts. These books also tell us about digital marketing, how social platforms help us grow businesses, and why a business should have a website.

One of the books is free and available to order from Amazon, which is available in both e-book and paperback. Online Business Ideas, a booklet that Asif wrote, is available for free on Google Books.

He also gives free classes to students in web design, digital marketing and graphics, using both online and offline mediums. Students can contact him directly through the official website of https://sheikhasif.com or his Facebook @sheeikhaasif or Instagram @sheiikhaasif to enroll in the said courses from any country.

Asif has received numerous awards including Entrepreneur of the Year 2022 from The Fireboxx Bangalore. Asif’s name was listed as a Padam Shiri Award nominee in 2022.

Raising awareness of IT degree courses in India was the main reason for Asif to come back from Manchester, UK in 2018. Most students only prefer medical and non-medical subjects.

“As freelancers, we can work from home and make a living, and there’s no time limit while we’re working.” “That’s just the beauty of studying IT,” Asif said while explaining the importance of learning information technology .

He has taught more than 1000 students to date. But a small percentage of the students are from Kashmiri.

While Asif’s main source of income is the company he started in the UK, he has pledged to continue mentoring and teaching students online for free.

Because of his hard work and dedication, Asif has become a household name in Kashmir. He offers free courses in digital marketing, web design, and graphic design.

Asif has received numerous awards including Entrepreneur of the Year 2022 from The Fireboxx Bangalore. Asif’s name was listed as a Padam Shiri Award nominee in 2022.
