Amit Jain Education and Early Career


Amit Jain did his early education from Saint Xavier’s School, Jaipur. After completing his schooling, Amit cleared the entrance exam for IIT and got admission into IIT Delhi in 1999.

Early Career

After graduating, Amit Jain was hired by Tata Consultancy Services as a software engineer. After completing one year with Tata, Jain switched jobs, hoping for more opportunities. He was offered the position of Senior Associate, Delivery Manager, and Product Manager at Trilogy, a software-based company located in Austin, Texas.

In 2006, Amit had to come back to his hometown due to the unfortunate demise of his father. Amit converted his garage into a makeshift office and founded GirnarSoft, an IT outsourcing company, in his hometown of Jaipur. The company was profitable in its early years, employing a team of 20 people, as stated by Startup Talky.

Amit Jain’s CarDekho Success Story

The idea to start CarDekho came to the Jain brothers when they attended an Auto-Expo in Delhi. They realized that to make their mark in the market, they would have to think outside the box and decided to launch CarDekho for all car enthusiasts. The brothers started the business from their garage at home, and soon a team of 20 employees was working with them.

After their first year in business proved to be profitable, the brothers eventually lost around 1 crore in stocks and were left with no money. This loss was a big lesson for them and helped them come back with a stronger aim: to invest the company’s money more carefully. 

Although they were still haunted by the tension of clearing all their debts and paying their employees, their fighting spirit helped the company gain a huge amount of profits. The turning point came when they took CarDekho as an official flagship project.
