Ankesh Banjare- Founder Coshal
Ankesh Banjare- Founder Coshal-Hi! My name is Ankesh, and I am the founder of Coshal Art. I was born and reared in the village of Lawan, which is located close to Baloda Bazar in the state of Chhattisgarh. I did schooling at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya Mana Camp in Raipur. During 2013–2017, I attended the National Institute of Technology (NIT) in Raipur and majored in Electronics and Tele Communication. My college seniors came up with the idea for the food delivery startup where I worked after graduation, so that's where I got my start in the startup world.
Even after graduating, I continued to be involved with new businesses by taking a job with a Chhattisgarh-based company developing its tourism and art industries. It didn't work out for me with this startup, so I decided to try my luck in a different industry this time. In 2018, I applied to and was accepted into a fellowship program at a school in India that teaches social entrepreneurship. This program, which lasted for nine months, educated me on numerous facets of business and taught me how to address social entrepreneurs' obstacles.
After getting to know a few Dhokra artists through my work with Coshal, I decided to continue my collaboration with the community more consistently. The business was established in April 2019 and is now receiving incubation at the Atal Incubation Center (AIC-36INC) in Raipur. The firm has collaborated with thirty different families from the Bastar and Raigarh regions in the past three years. And assisted them in obtaining orders from various individual and business customers.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, our craftsmen are having trouble getting back on track with their orders. We designed the website coshalart.com specifically for them. To make it less difficult for us to link artisans with the buyers who want their items during these challenging times.
