According to Rajesh Sha, “success is rented, and rent is due every day.” It is this philosophy that pushes him to work hard and to embrace challenges as opportunities to learn and to grow.
Rajesh graduated with a bachelor’s degree in electronics and communication engineering from Stani Memorial College of Engineering & Technology (SMCET), Jaipur, India. With a passion for technology and an entrepreneurial spirit, he relocated to Australia 10 years ago and began building a portfolio of companies from scratch. As a systems, applications, and products in data processing (SAP) consultant, with over 15 years of experience and multiple certifications, Rajesh is highly regarded throughout the consulting world and has worked in industries spanning technology, manufacturing, transportation, mining, IT services, electronic appliances, energy, and oil and gas. This is Rajesh Sha, the founder of Digitori Labs and Salvator Product. He is at once the technical architect of SAP delivery and managed services and the innovative mind behind end-to-end prototyping, design, testing, and deployment.
Rajesh’s journey toward success began with his father, a retiree from the Indian Army. “He helped to mentally prepare me for life by always telling me that I could achieve anything and by assuring me that I could figure things out,” he shares. Because of his father’s influence, Rajesh has never waited for things to happen—he makes them happen for himself.
In 2005, after earning his undergraduate degree, Rajesh became a programmer in the software industry, where he remained for the next five years. Then, in 2010, he received an opportunity to travel to Australia as an integration consultant. What began as a three-week project turned into Australian citizenship, and he’s called Melbourne home ever since.
Eight years later, in 2018, Rajesh founded Digitori Labs in his hometown of Melbourne. The company specializes in SAP delivery and offers a full spectrum of services across technology consulting and application development. Boasting a team of highly experienced consultants, Digitori delivers the best possible solutions to clients in a timely and cost-efficient manner. Their philosophy is to be customer focused and transparent, and to always maintain integrity.
Rajesh was flying almost every week for project work, but that came to a stop due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As the world tucked itself away, he became inspired to develop a new device to help keep his family—and the general public—safe. Within the next two months, he plans to launch Salvator, a standalone, light, easy-to-carry personal safety device that links directly to the Salvator app, which can be downloaded on any smartphone. With four distinct buttons on the device, users can alert saviors in different situations. When an alert button is pressed, the saviors receive an auto-generated notification call as well as the user’s specific location.
In addition to his two technology businesses, Rajesh owns his own café and does real estate as well. However, no matter how busy he might be, his family always comes first. He credits his success in great part to his wife, Sonika, a businesswoman, herself, who runs the café and helps with the real estate while being a mother to their two children, eight-year-old Aanya and six-year-old Arya. “Sonika is my support, and her ‘have-a-go’ attitude helps me to become ‘go-getter,’” says Rajesh.
