Soham is a first-generation businessman. He was born, raised and resides in Kolkata, India. Soham studied at St. James’ School and thereafter, earned his degrees in hospitality from the Institute of Hotel Management, Kolkata and the Oberoi Centre of Learning & Development, New Delhi, India.
Soham, on graduating from the Oberoi Centre of Learning & Development, moved on, on personal grounds. The available employment opportunities did not interest him, rendering him unemployed for 10 months. He decided on starting a business.
His first venture, No Junktion was a health food brand which drew inspiration from his personal weight loss journey where he had shed a gargantuan 90 pounds. The brand progressed from launching as an online food delivery service, thereafter, expanding to a takeaway and finally to a bistro.
Unfortunately, the brand shut down after operating for 20 months owing to an employee union crisis.
His second venture was Soham Ghosh Holdings, an investment firm that invested in listed equities. The firm was incorporated to specifically manage his investment portfolio. A few of his notable investments were in Tata Elexsi, Tata Power, Tata Motors, Speciality Restaurants, Venkys, Ion Exchange, Sterling and Wilson, Graphite India and Borosil Renewables. His investments grew a stupendous 115x.
Soham, post his successful run in the financial markets, founded his third venture, Soham Ghosh International and forayed into the glittering world of diamonds via exports.
