How Siddharth Mahajan paved his way towards Hospitality and is now a renowned owner of Tulip Real Estate UK?
For Siddharth Mahajan, education was his launchpad into the big, glitzy world of hotels and hospitality. A self-made man, Siddharth Mahajan reached Kerala to pursue his dream of being a hotelier after his schooling and enrolled himself in the Oriental School of Hotel Management. He earned his three-year Bachelor’s course in Hotel Management in 2002. This course included an International Hotel Hospitality Diploma with the prestigious American Hotel Lodging Association. Immediately after college, he got his first job at the enviable and prestigious Oberoi group of hotels in its Rajvilas property in Jaipur, which is a five-star hotel in India. His first job was that of a Front Office Assistant and Supervisor. He stayed at Rajvilas till 2005.
After his stint in the Oberoi hotel, he flew abroad to explore more opportunities. His stints abroad included employment in Amba Hotel, Marble Arch, where he worked as a Guest Relations Manager. His services in Amba earned him great appreciation from the guests. His next stop was the Canary Wharf, where his role was of the Operations Manager. However, the entrepreneurial bug bit him before anyone knew and he decided to start up and become a business owner, accomplishing his own dreams for his future.
All his career, he had seen business executives and students who traveled regularly seeking accommodation options which gave them not only the comfort of a room but also the feeling of home. It was important to the weary travelers that they feel at home wherever they are. Keeping these things in mind, Siddharth Mahajan decided to start a new concept in the hospitality sector — Houses in Multiple Occupations or HMOs. The idea was amazing. A house with all necessary furnishing and comfort let out to different people at the same time. He started by converting his own properties into HMOs.
While there are many examples in business to show that education does not amount to anything or guarantee success, Siddharth Mahajan does agree that education gives you the leverage and the courage to go out there and explore multiple possibilities. If not for the skills Siddharth Mahajan learned during his college, he might not have identified the gaps in the industry and set out to conceive an idea to solve the gap. However, he also realizes and recognizes the importance of courage and conviction to his own self in running a business successfully and creating a formidable brand, as written in detail in Sidd Mahajan London.
Though Siddharth’s goodwill from his college and his earlier workplaces provided the much-needed impetus in his new business, it grew exponentially within the first few years of his inception due to the share of work he put into it. This gave him huge fortunes and also catapulted him into one of the great heights in the hospitality segment, all while grooming Tulip Hotel and Real Estate Ltd to be an endearing brand.
