Amit Singh, hailing from Prayagraj, Uttar Pradesh, completed his primary education from Kendriya Vidyalaya. He enrolled in Allahabad University for a BSc degree. However, due to his involvement in college politics, he neglected his exams for three years, which led to him being labelled as a college dropout. Despite this setback, Amit eventually turned his fortunes around. Today, he is a founder of a multinational company which provides employment to over 200 engineers. Let’s read more about his inspiring journey. 


Amit Singh's father worked for Indian Telephone Industries (ITI Limited) in Naini, Allahabad. Amit's newfound love for college politics put him in a directionless position. On the other hand, his father believed that he was diligently studying. In a fortunate turn of events, Amit attempted the UPCET exam that same year and secured admission to an engineering college in Ghaziabad.

Enduring challenges

After completing his BTech in 2003, Amit Singh began his career as a network engineer at Reliance Infocom with a salary of Rs 8,500. During this period, his father arranged his marriage, and soon after, Amit welcomed a son. This was a challenging time for him. Unhappy with his job at Reliance Infocom, Amit moved to Bangalore, where he joined ITI Limited with a salary of Rs 10,000. However, this income was insufficient to support his family comfortably.

Corporate career

In search of better opportunities, Amit continued his job hunt and eventually landed a position at Nokia Siemens Networks with a monthly salary of Rs 60,000. The news filled him with so much joy that he couldn't sleep the entire night. This marked a turning point in his career. Later, he joined Subex Limited, which required him to relocate to Canada for a year. Upon his return, he joined Oracle and worked there until 2014.

Founding a company

At the beginning of 2015, Amit launched his first business venture, Yitsol, which did not achieve success but provided valuable learning experiences. In October 2020, he founded TelioEV to enter the electric vehicle sector, and in October 2023, he established Teliolabs. Headquartered in Hyderabad, Teliolabs has expanded internationally with branches in the United States, the UK, and Hungary. Currently, the company employs over 200 engineers, and its revenue is steadily increasing.
