Year 2005 – Gopal Dave and Dhawal Dave thought about starting business of equity broking. Ventured into this firled with small capital of INR 0.25 million and small office setup of 500 sq ft.
Starting was small, but vision was large, to create a giant.
Year 2006-08 – Became Master franchisee of a mumabi based broking house and devloped network in entire Saurashtra.
In 2009-10, (recession period) when majority of broking houses were under pressure of financial liquidity and low turnover, management took a decision to transform this business venture into its own broking house.
This gave birth of Sunflower Broking with membership of BSE, NSE, MCX and CDSL at the same time.
In 2009-10, Sunflower Broking had 80+ franchisees in Saurashtra region of Gujarat with client base of 2000+.
By 2013-14, now it is a network of 175+ franchisees with 7000+ clients across Gujarat and Mumbai and growing year by year.
