How it all started:
When eth1 Network Solutions founder Mr. Swapneel Patnekar started a new flagship venture under the banner of eth1 Network Solutions, Open Source Project Mentorship 5 months ago, there were hardly any takers as it was an initiative in untested waters.
The basic goal of “Open Source Software Project Mentorship” is to promote and encourage the use of Open Source Software and Linux in the engineering projects domain.
Who is behind this:
Under the mentorship of Swapneel Patnekar, Urbanbuzz.in was started by a horde of engineering students from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering as their project for the final semester. The engineering geeks behind this innovative venture are Mr. Mikhail Sharma, Mr. Anup Kalburgi, Mr. Pratheek Totiger and Miss. Priyanka Samant. Urbanbuzz already has a flurry of customers under their belt and are expanding exponentially.

When this blog asked the budding engineers how it all started, their experience this is what they said-
Initially, we had no belief in ourselves to flow against the stream, learn alien languages and design a project from the scratch. The will of our team and the intense urge to do something fresh as budding engineers landed us to eth1 Network Solutions. Where in we not only learnt the technical know how but also were guided morally by Mr. Swapneel Patnekar. There has always been unconditional support and co- ordination by our mentor Prof. Umesh M Kulkarni lecturer Computer Science and Engineering.
At eth1 Network Solutions, we learnt through experience and committing our own mistakes rather than the conventional black board and chalk piece approach, under the thorough professional approach of this company.
The outcome was a little slow in the beginning but we are picking up at a steady pace and happy to see our dreams turn reality. Reaching out the public was the key to the growth of our ideas, taking their suggestions, thinking in terms of providing solutions to their practical problems through our small yet effective SMS advertising/ marketing campaign.
