Ashish Deora Future of Indian Real Estate

The Journey

Telecom: Ashish Deora started his journey through telecom. Early on, he quickly identified the gigabyte's versatility and convenience and was the first to install an optic fiber network in Mumbai. In a time where people were still stuck in the thick and inconvenient copper wires, Ashish rose above the standard and delivered excellence. Additionally, he implemented the very first Metro Area Network in the nation in collaboration with Cisco Systems. This proved to be one of the earliest forms of telecom infrastructure sharing.

Video On Demand: Ashish founded IOL Broadband, an early pioneer of India's video on demand market; in all likelihood, it was too early for its time. IOL Broadband had launched its video on demand and IPTV service at the beginning of 2003.

Aviation: The third stop on Ashishs journey was in aviation. He invested in SpiceJet (formerly ModiLuft), an early proponent of digital transformation in the air. SpiceJet introduced digital pricing and brought a perishable commodity of airline seats, directly and in real-time, to consumers.

Automotive components: Ashishs tactical thought process found him acquiring a manufacturing plant with intentions of producing automobile parts and plans to manufacture electric vehicles for the Indian market.

Renewable Energy : Later, Ashish was a trailblazer in the renewable energy market. He was part of one of the first companies to receive funding from the Jawaharlal Nehru Solar Association in the first phase.

Mining and Exploration: Ashish conquered a challenging feat when he entered one of the most brutal and most methodical industries, mining. In a sector that requires patient capital and scientific vigor, Ashish established a robust foothold with operations in East Africa and South America.

Real Estate: Currently, Ashish runs a thriving real estate company in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region. As one of the largest new-age real estate companies, Aurum has end-to-end capabilities from acquisition to design development, project management, leasing, sales, world-class hospitality, and the freshest technology engrained in the ecosystem in the form of PropTech.
