A place for startup entrepreneurs to meet in Pune
Many startups claim humble beginnings, but our story really did begin in one of the most humble ways imaginable. My colleague Shridhar and I met for a friendly chat at a Cafe Coffee Day. For one reason or another our conversation turned into a trend in mobile workforce management that we’d both begun to notice. We both agreed that…

But as your business grows from a one-person outfit to 5 to 10 to 20, then adds turnover, it becomes impossible for one person to oversee everything. That is especially true when it comes to your money. Hiring a finance professional allows you to delegate the management of your finances to a qualified expert so that you can focus on…Continue
