How INFOSYS Started - 

Infosys was started very interestingly and with a very quick execution in January 1981. 

Narayana Murthy and his six other software engineering friends were sat in an apartment and discussing how technology can change the world and some common topic related to technology, but suddenly they had thought of, What if they could create a company, which writes software codes and helps others in terms of software skills.

As they had this thought, they, suddenly thought it could be an amazing idea to start one because the competition was very low, at that point in time. So they took it as an opportunity and  Challenge and they started immediately working on that company. 

And after 6 months, they registered in it as a private limited company on 2nd, July 1981. 

And their registered office is amongst one of the co-founder houses, which is located in Matunga, Central Mumbai. 

And that's how Infosys was started and took birth and later on, it became one of the successful Tech companies all over the world

Meaning of INFOSYS -

Struggles of INFOSYS - 

When Narayana Murthy had thought of starting a company for software codes (Infosys), he had no clue about the number of challenges he gonna face in the future but the first biggest problem he faced is of funds.

Narayana Murthy just has about 250$ with him (that too he borrowed from his wife Sudha Murthy). Just imagine how hard it could be to start a company like Infosys with just 250$.

Anyhow he managed and got started with Infosys but he had no proper office and no proper employees except his six engineering friends.
