Aadithyan Rajesh, a fourteen-year-old student and entrepreneur from Dubai, started his journey with technology at the age of six when he started learning to code. At the age of nine when he developed his first mobile app. And at 13, Aadithyan founded a software company, Trinet Solutions, that offers premium website and application development.

Originally from Kerala, he moved to Dubai with his family when he was ten. Since then, Aadithyan has achieved a lot in the field of information technology as an app developer, web designer, and a keen problem solver.

How did it all begin?
Adithyan was six when Mark Zuckerberg founded Facebook. Intrigued by this discovery, Aadithyan began to learn coding and HTML from his father. “My father told me that if I can learn coding, I can also build something similar, someday. From that time in 2010, my fascination with technology increased significantly to a point where I self-taught myself a lot of skills like programming, android development etc.”

Here’s a glimpse into some of the apps Aadithyan has created (L-R). Dinero (a complete finance solution); Olivia (a friend with an artificial neural network); Wikify (wikipedia as newsfeed).

When I was younger I wanted to be a software developer. I am fortunate to have realised that dream by the age of thirteen.

Aadithyan Rajesh, 2020

How did his company, Trinet Solutions, come into being?

I wanted to do something different than the digital agencies that were around that time. I wanted to do something even bigger. So, I approached a few seniors and sought their help to build a company to develop apps for the community and also, earn some pocket money!

Since then, Trinet has had some amazing clients.

What does he regard as his best work?
“It’s an app I created for my teachers! A lot of them later told me that it was really beneficial for them. So, I was very happy to hear that.”
The app, called Teacher’s App, helps teachers maintain schedules, class timings, scores, and other details that mark their days.

What keeps him going?
“My love for building softwares keep me going.”

What comes next?
Aadithyan is currently working on a peer to peer learning app called Tangled. Here, students will get to learn from each other!
Hear him talk about his plans for the future-

Who inspires him?
“Mark Zuckerberg. He had created such a huge social media channel at such a young age. Even Bill Gates has called him a visionary! That’s something.”

How does he unwind?
Aadhityan has school on weekdays and he works on his company’s projects on weekends. In the time that he has left to himself, he goes swimming, kayaking, and cycling with his friends. He also loves to spend time with his family. He likes watching news and televised debates as well!

Here’s his message for budding entrepreneurs—

Aadithyan proves that one is never too young to realise one’s dream! Age is just a number before passion. We, at Owliver, are excited to see this tech-wiz’s future unfold!
