Sample Answer 

India’s economy is thriving. Nowadays, most people would rather work for themselves than an employer. People have established numerous tiny businesses, and now I’ll discuss one of their enterprises in my nation: jaywalking. Jay Jajhal, a youthful entrepreneur, founded the quick fashion company Jaywalking in 2016. He was raised in a family of aspirational lower-middle-class parents. He was a typical young man academically. Later, at the University of Mumbai, he pursued a bachelor’s degree in fashion design. He decided to start his firm after discovering his interest in business while studying fashion design. His clothing was extremely rare and had custom designs, which immediately made this brand popular. Regular consumers of this brand include actors Ranveer Singh, Amitabh Bachchan, Scoutt, Shubhman Gill, and many more. The vast customer base that this company has gathered in a short amount of time is the primary factor in determining its success. Additionally, this company works on many humanitarian issues and hires women. This company has been entirely self-funded up to this point and hasn’t received a single round of investment. The founder has plans to diversify the product line and appeal to clients around the world in the future. In conclusion, Jaywalking is among the fastest-growing businesses worldwide, and the quality of their goods surpasses that of many pricier clothing labels.
