Vaioni’s Sachin Vaish named in the 2019 Insider North West ‘42 under 42’ awards

Oct 4, 2019 | News

Vaioni’s founder and Managing Director, Sachin Vaish has been named in the 2019 Insider ‘42 Under 42’ awards for the North West.

Sachin’s success started at age 21 when he formed his first business providing connectivity into student accommodation. Here he won Young Asian Entrepreneur in 2003 and ultimately sold the business in 2006.

Looking for a new challenge, in 2008 he then invested the money to develop a disruptive Internet Service Provider that focused on delivering high-speed connectivity combined with stellar customer service in and around London, eventually taking it National. That company, Vaioni, has since experienced success after success, winning a string of business awards and high-profile clients including providing a robust connectivity solution for the Royal Wedding last summer. In the last year, the business has relocated to MediaCity UK, attracted significant investment from Panoramic and is poised on a significant 5-year growth plan to build one of the most powerful networks in the UK.

Sachin commented: “I am humbled to be part of the 42U42 club and for all of Vaioni; being noticed amongst great entrepreneurs for the hard work and sacrifice we all have made and continue to make, to create something special for our amazing people and customers!”

Conceived to challenge the stereotypical misnomer that all successful entrepreneurs are 50+, the North West 42 Under 42 awards will be celebrated at an invite-only dinner on October 7th. Identifying the North Wests’ brightest business talent, its alumni include: the Kamanis, Tom Bloxham, Esther McVey, Beth Tweddle and the Issa brothers to name but a few. This year’s event showcases the people who will form the next generation of successful business leaders and business owners.

The award hasn’t persuaded Sachin to slow down his development strategy for Vaioni, as the business continues to invest in its network rollout and delivering new products to its customers. The MDs ultimate aim is for Vaioni to become the leader in delivering digital transformation solutions to business customers, with its national superfast connectivity platform and SDN being at the heart of its technology stack.

How to be agile

How to be agile

Covid has vastly accelerated a number of workplace trends already in play, forcing companies to adopt new strategies, policies and technologies at breakneck speed. From digital transformation to remote working, 2020 feels like the year when everything changed in the blink of an eye.

So how should organisations react to this constant cycle of change? At times like this, a certain amount of trepidation is natural. Business doesn’t like uncertainty, because it leads to indecision. How can you plan for a post-pandemic future when it’s impossible to predict what will happen next week?

What is hybrid work (and why it’s good for your business)?

What is hybrid work (and why it’s good for your business)?

When lockdown hit in March, thousands of us rushed away from workplaces and set up office in back bedrooms and garden sheds. It wasn’t ideal, but it was good enough. We made the best of it, despite cramped spaces, intrusive children and stuttering Zoom meetings.

And with the arrival of Covid’s second wave this Autumn, that’s the position many of us still find ourselves in. We’ve become used to remote working, though some of us want to go back to the office. Our expectations around work/life balance have changed. We’re looking forward to the end of the pandemic, but that doesn’t mean we want to wind back the clock to exactly the way things were before.

A new approach

Which is why you might have started hearing the term ‘hybrid working’ bandied about recently. It’s a new way of working that advocates a semi-remote approach, and generally means employees spend some of the week (post-Covid) in the office, and some of it working at home or elsewhere. It’s likely to prove popular. In Vaioni’s own post-Covid home working survey, only 8% of respondents said staff would continue to work from home all of the time after the pandemic, but 60% said their businesses would adopt a hybrid model.
