The Entrepreneurial Journey Begins

She soon ventured into entrepreneurship as she wanted to start things independently. So, she launched her startup, ‘eDesign,’ in 2009.
eDesign is a platform that offers you an approach to designing a website and its web development. The website comprises all the necessary processes to form a website: business intelligence, strategic planning, creative approach, product and service promotion, and application development.

But this young girl didn’t stop there, and by age 11, she had already started another company called Tiny Logo.
Suresh, in an interview, talked about her startup, Tiny Logo; she said, “Tinylogo is a logo-based search engine. I am very much interested in collecting logos and in collecting beautiful logos, so I started the site. But my dad told me that taking the logos from other companies’ sites without permission is against the law. So I thought of legally collecting the logos. During that period, I met Mr. Sainul Abideen (Cybrosys Technosolutions), who is world-famous for his rainbow technology, and discussed the matter with him. The idea of a logo-based search engine came out from that discussion, and I executed it in association with Cybrosys Technosolutions”.
