This Is How A School Dropout, Trishneet Arora, Made A Million Dollar Company At The Age Of 23

Published on 27 September, 2018 at 4:59 pm By

We live in the era of start-ups. Today’s youth is quickly moving towards the start-up culture and is quitting their 9 to 5 jobs. The reason for that is they want to create something of their own. They want to invest in something that fascinates and interests them. Indian startups are doing fabulously and has been generating massive global attention of late.

India has long recognised as a global hotbed of innovation and the country currently ranks number three on the global map for startups. One such startup worth mentioning is TAC Security which is a cyber security consulting partner that specializes in securing the IT infrastructure and assets of many companies. The story of its founder, Trishneet Arora, is equally interesting. He didn’t quit his job but school to work on his start-up business.

He currently made to the list of Forbes ‘30 under 30’ list and is only 25 years old.

 

Trishneet is a cybersecurity expert, and founded TAC Security in 2013. His company does vulnerability assessment and penetration testing for corporates and protects them from cyber hackers.

Trishneet was always intrigued by technology. Recalling his early experience when he first dismantled his father’s computer, he said:

“I was all of eight then. I dismantled my father’s computer and could not fix it. When my father took the computer to a mechanic, I accompanied him and observed the work. The computer was fixed in about 15 minutes.”

 

 



Soon, he got interested in learning about hardware and software, wherein, he learned about hacking. Thereafter, he successfully hacked his father’s computer, and this success further inspired him to take up hacking ethically.

When APJ Abdul Kalam said, “The best brains of the nation may be found in the last benches of the school”, he was perfectly right. Trishneet was always a backbencher. In fact, he failed in class 8 and dropped out of school. Later, when he decided to pursue Class 12 via distance learning, he failed there, too.

 

 

At the age of 19 in 2013, he started TAC and even wrote a book, The Hacking Era. Five years later, he stands tall with a million-dollar company and his clients include Reliance Industries, Amul, Avon Cycles, Ralco Tyres and government organizations like the CBI, Punjab Police, and Gujarat Police.

In 2017, he was also featured on the list of “The GQ 50 most influential young Indians.”
