Having experienced and a good sense of business already in his mind, Nitin Agrawal ventured into the domain of Co-living for working professionals and students. Along with the support of his wife and the co-founder, Garima Agrawal, he started Roomsoom to provide fully-furnished PG or Flat or Rooms on rent together with VAS to the young working professionals and students.
Before becoming the founder of Roomsoom, Nitin had worked in established companies in the Telecom sector. He had worked for over 20 years in Business Development and Technical Sales, Network Engineering, Network Planning, etc.
He had worked in some of the well-known industries such as Nokia, Nortel, Motorola, and Hutch. When he was living outside of his hometown for a brief time, he realized the problems that people face while living in PG accommodations and rental homes. Later, to bring a change in the industry, he started renting out his and his friend's vacant space to home-seekers at affordable prices. Soon he decided to pursue this further and this is how the idea of Roomsoom came into his mind.
With a high business sense, digital opportunity, and market knowledge, Roomsoom was established at a significant level. Roomsoom created the facilities for students as per the demand in the market and became successful.
