Apurv Agrawal, the brain behind NgoFuel, awarded as top 30 startups of India 2010
by NEN(National Entrepreneurship Network), is also a board member of ‘lets graduate'.
A techno freak, pursuing his B-Tech in IT from VIT Apurv can aptly be called one of
the budding magnates of India whose creation “NgoFuel” has not only facilitated a
number of NGO’s to maintain their noble work in this rising inflation but also
benefited a lot of volunteers to learn as well as apply it in the real business world.
Apurv is basically from Noida and is the son of Mr Satan Lal and Mrs. Indu Agrawal.
His sister Aditi who is also one the co-founder of Ngofuel, studies in Lady Sriram
College, Delhi. Apurv who never
considered himself as a great scholar was an average getter in school but had extra innovative thinking skills
which paved the way for him. It was the same Newtonic effect of sitting and thinking randomly in one of his
college classes about different ways in which he could serve this society, he came with a brilliant idea which
sparked the birth of NgoFuel on 21st September 2010. But the road to success was not devoid of hurdles and
setbacks. Apart from a from a lack of proper financial management plans for their marketing, they faced a dearth of dedicated
volunteers in VIT but with perseverance and strategic planning things finally fell into place.
Apurv has also worked with Morvo Corp which has built a number of software programs for many clients including Café De Pacific,
Balaji stores. Apurv says he looks at every task as a problem and gathers information about it,
as he believes information is always the key to finding a solution. He is a self-motivated guy
but also thanks his mentor Professor P Karthikeyan, VIT Administration and his family for
their support. Incepting their way with eminent NGOs like Bhoomi, Chennai and Sisters of the
People, Delhi; NgoFuel has come a long way in the past few months.
It is a non-profitable organization founded by Apurv and some of his friends namely Aditi,
Saswata, Sriram, Naveen, Vishnupriya, Kanika, Shreyas, Siddharth, Ankur, Amit and Naren
which serves as a free provider of web site domains, posters and other types of web based
