When and how did you start?
CVDuniya is the brainchild of Mr. Sagar Madgunki, who is currently working in South Korea.
CVDuniya is a start-up aimed at helping students with aspects that are of utmost importance related
to placement and MBA Admissions. CVDuniya provides review & editing services w.r.t. to Resume &
CV, Cover letters, MBA Application forms, Essays, SOP, LOR, Aptitude & Interview Coaching,
prominently among others. We also help people get their Resume Website or Resume Videos.
How did you come up with the idea? Your inspiration moment
Sagar had been helping many students & friends from the past couple of years for CV editing,
aptitude coaching. Contemplation & research led to the fact that the free online templates/tips
aren’t so unique & most of them are only system generated. Those offering paid services, the prices
are on the higher side, which turns out to be expensive for the students. A platform to provide such
services, with topmost quality seemed necessary. Realizing the need & the huge market CVDuniya
decided to jump in. Within no time we had a team of some exceptionally good & experienced
writers. With our exorbitantly low prices, CVDuniya mainly aims to help students achieve their dream
jobs & colleges.

Brief about organization and founding members
As mentioned earlier, CVDuniya was started by Mr. Sagar Madgunki. He completed his
Instrumentation Engineering from VESIT, Mumbai in 2015. From the past one year, he has been
working on behalf of a global Automation MNC for a project at South Korea. The core team is
formed by Mr. Swapnil Landge, Mr. Arjun Nambiar & Mr. Yogesh Dhadve, all of them who hold an
Engineering degree. Members of the core team, are also working at respectable positions globally
but are committed to the vision & service at CVDuniya. The good rapport & trust among the team
members coupled with their dedication & talent has led CVDuniya to achieve so much, within such a
short time frame.
Besides this, we have provided short-term internship opportunities to college students, who have
been doing a great job for us.
Though the journey duration has been small so far, it has come up with some important lessons for
the members & the startup as well. We have hit the lows, had our moments but eventually, our
desire to help the students & dedication of the members has helped us sail through the storm with a
belief that all these things could be handled by us in future as well.
Challenges and Opportunities/ Marketing Strategies
Our analysis & market research says that there are a few big giants within India who are
endeavoring into one of the services which we offer. Also, some foreign services are looking to
expand to India. Seeing them as a potential challenge & to provide the best to our customers, is
making us think out of the box and the freedom to experiment. We are currently are B2C entity &
very soon would be going B2B as well.
Future plans and funding

seeking help with respect to Resume/CV & MBA Applications. The feedback that we have received so
far has been very positive & motivating for us.
We are currently researching to develop more tools using AI & machine learning that would help us
enhance our services. With investment & resources at hand, we aspire to get into other services such
as GRE Applications to name a few. Currently, we aim to be the best in what we are offering & build
a pan India presence. Further down the line, we see CVDuniya being a one-stop solution for students.
A quote from the founder on the journey, or dealing with the challenge, or any inspiring moment.
Ensure best of services to give the best to your customers, profits will take care of themselves. Dream
as big as you can, but set realistic goals. And the journey has taught me that – a founder doesn’t
have to get work done by his people, he must inspire them to work. With self-belief, I have been
able to win trust & support from some amazing people which are turning out to be a blessing for
EXCLUSIVE: Founder’s advice to budding entrepreneurs
Based on personal experience, I believe rather than contemplating a lot about the idea, get going
with a problem you seem to have a solution for. It doesn’t matter how big or small it is, as you
commence you come up with better plans. Once you begin, every day would give you moments
where it would seem like a failure, but it is this moment where you need to bring out the same
enthusiasm or rather much more than you had while you started. For they say, failure is the true test
of a character. Always remember this – “Aspire big, start small.”
