Anubhav Deep, The First Bihari To get Selected in Y Combinator, World’s Largest StartUp Incubator From Silicon Valley

Anubhav Deep , born in Patna in a middle class family, originally belongs to Chhapra. Due to his father’s transferable job, he has been lucky to stay in 8 states but has always been a true Bihari by heart and nature. Different institutions played a pivotal role in shaping his mind and character, the prominent ones being Don Bosco Academy, Patna; DAV Shyamali, Ranchi and BIT MESRA.

Sipping a cup of tea, Anubhav Deep alongwith his friend, Akansh Sinha, came across the idea of establishing ServX.

The startup got selected by Y Combinator for funding. The accelerator invests $120K in startups for a 7% equity stake in the selected startups. It normally takes in a large number of startups (107) last year, and has funded over 1,464 startups since 2005. The selected startups then move to Silicon Valley for three months, where it also helps them pitch investors.

ServX, the brain child of two engineers is a marketplace for authorized automotive service providers. Founded in November 2015, it covers every vehicle-related service including emergency pick-ups, doorstep repairs, regular maintenance, servicing, insurance, body shop modifications, cosmetics etc.

Co-founders Akansh and Anubhav Deep got placement in Oracle and Bajaj Autos respectively after completing their graduation. But both of them wanted to do something on their own.

Anubhav’s father, Mr. Abhay Kumar Sharma has been working in automobile sector in Bajaj Auto Limited for the past 30 years and he always influenced his son to establish himself as an individual.

The company believes in going authorised first and on-boarded over 100 authorised service centres.

We intend to optimise their processes to make the customer experience transparent and seamless service while bringing down the costs for them,“says Anubhav Deep.

After selecting the model and variant of the vehicle, one needs to pick a date, time amd convenient location. Once a request has been made, a representative from ServX will arrive to pick-up and drop-off the vehicle. The company promises a 20% discount while using services of authorised dealers.
Finally, this innovative lad sends the message of following one’s heart. He says that if given an opportunity, he would love to bring Bihar on world map. He would also like to continue with his family’s legacy in politics, taking inspiration from his maternal grandfather, Lt. Parmanand Singh Madan, who was a great scholar and politician.

Infused with the true Bihari spirit, he is all set to take the status and prestige of Bihar a notch higher with his innovative ideas and incredible entrepreneurship.
