Udit Mathur, the founder of Bellisimo Regno is a 23-year-old entrepreneur who is a solution-seeker based on research, a risk-taker and a believer. He is somebody who prefers working smart over working hard and is a staunch advocate of learning from other people and businesses. Not only to make himself better as an individual but also to help his company and the broader community prosper. Udit has learned that life is rough for everyone. People always have a story to share and it is for you to find something common to make conversation easier. This is what his business tries to do in a way. Help by portraying a way to showcase confidence.
The soft side of Udit lies in genuinely wanting to see people happy and one of the ways he does that is by speaking to them, hearing their stories and being of any possible kind of help that he can be to them. Also, he has a knack for remembering faces – Udit told me he has never forgotten a single face in his life. Right from the time when he was nothing till now. When he was trying to make something of myself.
As an entrepreneur, Udit wants to make buying products as simple as possible for his customers. With the growth in e-commerce and specific company taking on the world, there are only a few industries it does not affect – bespoke fashion being one of them. Bellissimo Regno aims to eliminate middlemen and be the manufacturer that supplies directly to the customers and lets them design their own suits and formal wear so that they can wear their confidence wherever they go. Since Udit was a child, his passion laid in designing things and talking to people and since communication is one of the keys to success in anything, it makes life so much easier.
I recently met Udit and his team on the official launch of their company Bellisimo Regno and had the priviledge of interviewing him. I am glad to share his story with you.
1. Humble Beginnings
Q: How did you get started and what or who inspired and empowered you to?
What really inspired me were my childhood memories of wanting to become an automobile engineer. I have 180 different kind of hot wheels and I always wanted to make my own designs based on it. Also, my parents have always wanted me to come across to the world as being different, classy and professional. My passion for cars and what my parents thought I should look like came together to motivate and empower me into believing in myself and starting Bellissimo Regno.
Q: What unique and creative strategies if any did you use when you were first getting started?
When getting started, I wanted to make the most of the relationships I have built after having travelled across various countries around the world which is why collaborating with influencers was one of the main strategies I used. Instead of going for partnerships with big companies, I went for those companies that were still growing because I found it better to work with more flexible companies that are willing to accommodate newness and changes. These partnerships will help the partner companies as well as Bellissimo Regno to grow faster together.
Q: What mindset distinguished you from others who were doing the same thing? How did you develop it?
My mindset from the very beginning was that I wanted to make the experience of my customers as seamless as possible. I made extensive use of historical data and the fashion trend changes in the last 50 years to ensure that I do not change the concept more than what people are comfortable with as well as keep it professional and classy. I wanted to make optimal use of all the technology at our disposal today because I understand that in today’s fast-paced day and age, people have a limited amount of time to indulge in purchases.
3. What is your definition of success?
My definition of success is being happy about what you provide to the customer and in return the customers love the products. For people to appreciate the brand more than its competition, that would be something to be proud of and what I would call success.
Q: What do you think is the main reason why some people face failure when going after their vision?
Failure strikes when people give up after a few setbacks. Even when we started, we had a few rough patches in this entire journey of 1.5 years. I was often advised against pursuing my dream because the returns would be slow and moving to something much easier. I chose not to take the easy way out. Since we work with businesses all around the world, keeping up with the different time zones is quite a task but in such situations time management is key when we make sure to keep in good touch with our partners by accommodating their schedules but we also keep in mind that our time is equally valuable.
5. What is the best piece of advice you have received or came across and would like to share with everyone?
The best piece of advice that I have received so far is to make the best use of my relationships and always allow negative remarks to motivate me rather tha lower my morale. It is all about learning from my negatives and always keeping them in mind to ground me every time I start becoming too self-absorbed. I also want all the positives in my life to keep encouraging me to move forward and constantly strive for more.
