The story starts in 1846, when the founder of Maggi - Julius Maggi was born. After completing his education, Julius began to look after the wheat flour mill of his father. The work was in great profits but gradually the business came down. This was the initial period of Industrial revolution and many new factories were being opened. Julius thought of starting a new business. He marched his step towards the food production for the better nutrition of the factory workers. 


In 1886, he started making ready made soup. This soup was made up of legume meals which was rich in protein content. In 1897, Julius registered the company name as Maggi GMBH. Gradually, other products like Maggi noodles, sauce and cubes were launched. After changes in corporate structures, Maggi was merged with the Switzerland company Nestle. After this merging, Maggi got a lot of advertisement. And the advertisement stressed on a key concept that the product was specifically for those people who didn't have much time and could be prepared in 2 minutes. 

This concept won millions of hearts. And with time, Maggi became the chief product of Nestle. In India, Maggi was introduced in 1983. But later, India became the topmost country to love Maggi. However, in 2015, the amount of lead in Maggi was found out to me more. And that's why the Food safety and standard authority of India banned the product. But, the Bombay High Court agreed that the test was not accurate because in the other countries, Maggi was found to be safer. And once again a test was done to ensure the safety. 


The ban caused a huge loss to the company. Near about 320 crores of Maggi packs were burnt. After five months, Maggi returned to the market and the people welcomed it nicely through social media. And today, the loss has been recovered again as people still believe in the product quality.

These four are regarded as the founders of Harley Davidson. Finally, they launched a new bike with an engine that was more powerful than the previous.

But, the company bore loss for a long time. And by 1960, BMW was likely to be sold. In 1961, it launched a car which was beneficial for the company. People liked it as a sports car. 



Gradually, the company launched many more models of cars. BMW then bought Rover company. But it became a sign of loss for BMW.

Inspirational Story Of Motorola

Life without mobile phones have become next to impossible, isn't it? Because almost each of our important work is related to the electronic gadgets today and that's the reason why we have grown dependent on those.

So today, I'm going to discuss about a popular American Telecommunication company - Motorola.

The first portable phone of the world was made by this company. Before years, this company was the largest in manufacturing mobile phones. But from 2007-2009 it got heavy loss and that's why the company was sold out.
Now let's know it's story from the beginning.

About 90 years ago, in 1928, two brothers started a small company named Galvin Manufacturing Company in a rented house. Those two brothers were Paul and Joseph Galvin. The company was started with 5 employees and 565 dollars as working capital. The collaboration with Stewart Battery Company gave a boost to Galvin manufacturing corporation and the first product of this company was Battery Eliminator. This battery's work was to eliminate use of battery from radio and make it work with the natural energy found at homes. 

However, the product couldn't exist for a long time in the market. Then, Galvin remarked that people like to use radios in cars. So, he asked his engineers to make cheap yet lasting radios. And the radio designed by Galvin Manufacturing Corporation was presented in the Radio Manufacturing Association fair and many people liked it. It was then that this corporation started getting deals and orders. And later, this radio was named Motorola. The word Motorola was a combination of two words - Motor and Victrola.

On 27 June 1930, this company sold out the first brand of Motorola. And when, the radio became extensively popular, the company name was changed from Galvin Manufacturing corporation to Motorola. After this, the company kept producing new equipment. In the time of World war, it produced a radio named SCR 536. In 1947, Motorola made a television. In 1958, Motorola designed many types of radios for America's first satellite launch and Neil Armstrong, the famous astronaut after reaching onto the Moon, communicated to earth through the Motorola device.

On 3 April 1973, Motorola made the first portable phone of the world. This invention was done by senior engineer of Motorola - Martin Cooper. Later, Motorola sold out its television manufacturing to the parent company of Panasonic in Japan. In 1984, Motorola made the first cellular phone named Dyna TAC 8000x. 

In next years, Motorola made phones like Micro TAC, Ultra classic and Star TAC. Then, it became the biggest mobile manufacturing company of the world. But the introduction of Nokia Company made Motorola stand in second number. It struggled and launched better type of mobile phones in the next years. But after 2007, the company started to go through heavy decline and loss. On 4th January 2011, the company was divided into two - Motorola Mobility and Motorola solutions. The next year, Motorola Mobility was sold out to Google which again after 2 years sold it to Lenovo. And finally, under Lenovo, Motorola is still finding its way to get ahead.

Inspirational Story Of Uber


Hello friends, today I am going to discuss about a global transportation company - Uber. Uber has made the transportation system easier than before. Uber is now providing its service in more than 600 cities. And very few people know that Uber has got self driving as well as helicopter services too. This company provides service related to food and drinks too. Let's get to the beginning of the story of Uber. 

About 9 years ago, a man named Garett Camp had booked a cab before the New Year's Day by spending 800 dollars. That is when he thought about the idea of sharing a vehicle. That would definitely cost less for each one who shared. This idea along with an incident led to the the start of Uber. 

The incident was that one evening, in France, Garett Camp and his friend Travis Kalanick were waiting for a taxi outside while it was snowing. But unfortunately, they didn't get any. Keeping this discomfort in mind, they opened up a company named Uber. Both of them talked to their friends and decided upon to have a start up. Garett Camp was then the co-founder of Stumbleupon company which he resigned. Travis Kalanick also sold his startup named Red Swoosh at 19 million dollars.

Both set to work upon the new company and launched the beta version of Uber in 2010. The first employee of Uber company was Ryan Graves who joined as general manager and later became the CEO of the company. In 2011, the company launched its official application in San Francisco. However the service didn't become popular because the price of black cabs were fifteen times more than the normal ones. The name 'Uber cab' existed till 2011. But then, it changed to 'Uber'. 
After working hard for a year Uber made changes in its strategies.

In July 2012, a strategy named Uber X was launched where any willing person could work for Uber with his or her personal cab. Gradually with this, the business expanded to 35 cities. In July 2014, Uber started the helicopter service from New York city to Hampton for 3000 dollars. This service was named Uber Chopper. The next month in August 2014, the company launched Uber pool service.  
Soon, it started another service named Uber eats. It was an online food ordering service. These strategies made the expansion of business easier. 

In March 2015, with the help of a collaboration, Uber started its luxury car service in Singapore. This included Cara like Lamborghini. Later, Uber established a robotics department and launched self driving car service. And today Uber is spread in almost 83 countries and 633 cities.
However, Uber faced many challenges along the way. 

The strong partnership of the two friends and their hard work is what led it to become successful today.
