This story of Sanjay Mane, Chairman & MD of Suman Group of Companies, is nothing short of inspiring and proving one fact over and over again that everything is possible if you have the will to accomplish it.

Born to a poor landless farmer in a nondescript and obscure village of Karnataka, he earned his master’s degree in chemistry from Shivaji University, Kolhapur with the volunteered financial help of the villagers and government subsidies. He then started his career as a plant chemist at Kraun fine chemicals, Karnataka with a vision of establishing his own chemical business.

Due to his hard work, talent, and passion for the job, he was promoted as a chief plant manager and then to a higher post of overall plant department in-charge just within the time span of 9 months. The company then sent him to Gujarat for the marketing of their products for few days and during that, a huge flood came as a good fortune for Sanjay as it made him stay there for the next few months and explore the industrial opportunities in Surat.

Being a man of resilience and growth, he decided to resign from his job and move to Surat to develop his career with just 500 rupees in hand. In an initial couple of months, he went jobless as he wanted to get a job in the large-scale chemical industry to understand the proper functioning and system management within an industry. He then worked in four different large-scale chemical companies for almost 5 years gaining a lot of experience and most importantly the confidence to start his own business. While working on all these jobs, he even obtained a distance-learning MBA from IIPM, Ahmedabad, and DBM from the National Institute of Management (Chennai) to boost up his managerial knowledge.

Later on, he began with establishing a chemical consulting firm (Shyam Enterprises) followed by a chemical manufacturing unit (Suman Chemical Industries) in 2004, after which he never looked back ever since. He kept soaring to new heights and achieving more success further with the unconditional support of his wife Suman Mane- who he mentions as a god’s blessing and a strong pillar of his life.

Today, he is a self-made millionaire and the owner of five different companies under the Suman Group of Companies namely Sanjay Mane Aviation Academy Pvt. Ltd. (SMAA), Indian Institute of Arts & Fashion Technology (IIAFT), S.S.Mane International (SSMI), Suman Chemical Industries (SCI) and Shyam Enterprises. He is also the founder and Managing Trustee of ‘Sanjay Mane Foundation’ that is actively involved in catering to the educational and nutritional needs of nearly 7,000 beneficiaries including children (0-6 years), pregnant and lactating women, and adolescent girls. SMF is also providing educational support for the lesser privileged students free of cost.

Take-away: – The road to business success isn’t an easy one. You’ll experience hardship, obstacles, detractors, and decisions that seem impossible—but with hard work, smart planning, and a great idea you believe in, you can get yourself on the road to success.
