The first 6 months of 2021 have been kind to EO member Pratik Kothari. He’s been mentioned in the news several times, with his first article in the Pilot celebrating his win of the Entrepreneur Award and his business TechArk being mentioned as a 2021 Small Business of the Year.
Here’s a quote from Kothari:
“It’s important to have grit, to stay on the path and to trust your instincts and decisions. This is one of the things that my wife has taught me. I’m framed in logic. I have a master’s in computer science. Everything to me is a zero or a one, so I would take my time in deciding, pondering over the possibilities because I have the details and logic wired in my brain. My wife would say, ‘Is this a life-or-death situation?’ It’s not, so you just have to be OK managing risks from that decision.”

He was mentioned in the paper a second time when TechArk continued their expansion. Just four months after its first acquisition of Virginia Beach-based Eyepinch, TechArk acquired Coders Clinic, a Suffolk-based digital solutions company. Coders Clinic specializes in web design and development, online marketing and hosting management services.

After having such a great year so far, Kothari has decided to give back!
His children Smit and Sahil Kothari decided to try pour painting during the extra time spent at home during the pandemic. They now have a website to sell their art creations, with 100% of the proceeds going to ForKids.
