The duo of Saija Bhatt Thakker and Shivang N Desai has initiated a start up to help Indian textile manufacturers understand the finer nuances of exporting. NS International will handhold aspiring exporters and increase their awareness on various factors like international payment and delivery systems, thereby increasing their confidence in exporting.
Sharing their plans with Fibre2Fashion, they said, “First, a majority of the people are very poor at data analysis. They are not aware of international payment and delivery systems; they fear that they will not receive payments for their shipments, and we want to bring clarity on this. Again, there is a certain lack of professionalism in small businesses in India.”
“When we travel abroad, one complaint that we receive is that we Indians are very convincing at the sampling stage, but when it comes to deliverables, both quality and quantity are not as promised. Another issue is the inability to balance the business in terms of domestic production and export, because to do this they need finance, infrastructure, good communication skills, and a travel plan. We plan to change all these through our consultancy services,” the duo added.
NS International is now operating in the food sector, but is planning a foray very soon in to the textiles sector and is currently researching the sector. The start-up is in talks with the Southern Gujarat Chamber of Commerce & Industry (SGCCI) to help create awareness and help non-exporters in textiles to turn into exporters. This is not just limited to helping them fetch orders, but provide a corporate service where the company can give them good revenues 3-5 years down the line.
