Muzafar Hussain, Founder & CEO of Appriffy

Muzafar Hussain is the Founder of Appriffy. He started his journey from a small town named Berhampur in Odisha. Things did not come easy for Muzafar. He went to Hyderabad to pursue Graduation, however, even after doing part-time jobs, he could not manage both his studies and his stay in Hyderabad, which made Muzafar move to Visakhapatnam, as the cost of living and education here was affordable as compared to Hyderabad.

Muzafar graduated in Electronics and Communication Engineering from Visakha Institute of Engineering and Technology, Visakhapatnam. In his final academic year, Muzafar launched Appriffy. However, after working for a couple of years on Appriffy, he found that things are not working as expected. This made him move to Bangalore for finding a job.

How was Appriffy Started?

Muzafar had the urge to do something for his country especially for solving the unemployment problem. He wanted to become an employment generator instead of an employment seeker, and this is what motivated him to start Appriffy. Today, Appriffy is not only generating employment but also saving clients money and time, delivering quality products, and helping startups realize their full potential.

"I worked really hard on building contacts and collaborations. I worked consistently for long hours and created the core Appriffy Team. Once the core team was created we all worked towards the client-side" - Appriffy founder Muzafar Hussain, said explaining the initial stage of the company.

Business & Revenue Model of Appriffy

Appriffy is currently running in a profitable state and the revenue comes in the form of subscriptions, profit margin, commissions, and equity in the startup companies with which Appriffy engages.

As regards the business model, Appriffy as stated above is engaged in two business models.

User Acquisition of Appriffy

In order to get their initial 100 customers, Appriffy used regular marketing strategies and worked on building trust among their clients, forging longevity.

"At the core, Appriffy believes in adding values to people's lives and we have always tried our best to stand by our words. This besides other conventional marketing strategies has helped us build an initial customer network."

Startup Challenges at Appriffy

Due to Appriffy's unique model based on renting software developers on-Hourly and on-Demand basis, they found it difficult to get customers initially; as businesses are addicted to going for the traditional hiring process.

In their second business model which is the part-cash and part-equity model gives the flexibility to founders of the startup to save money during their initial struggle. However, in this concept Founders are required to give some equity to Appriffy so they hesitate during initial meetings, which is a tough situation to overcome. But with their services, Appriffy has successfully built a loyal and happy customer base.
