For a start-up to succeed, a good team is mandatory. Capable team members are priceless (read very pricey!). You need not read ahead if you have enough money. But for the start-ups I know (and also my own start-up), a good team without money is a conundrum. Hiring the right interns in the only solution I have found during my two-year…Continue
The Hidden Value of Customers.
Sitting in at many of our meetings with clients, the most common pain point across the board, for a startup, is customer acquisition. I honestly think it is not just for a startup. Acquiring, actively engaging and retaining a customer is what will decide whether you can be a sustainable business.

1) They are not open to learn new things (typical answers are like: sir, I am a mechanical engineer, how can I do programming)
2) They are not capable of exploring and moving forward.

Technical Writer (TW) simplifies any technology for a non- technical user. Not all the writers are technical writers neither an engineer can write about the product for any user. TW follows steps or procedures to accomplish a specified task. In today’s world where the technology is communicated with the fingertips, there is no easy way to make a user understand.

Almost every one of us might have heard about Crush. Many might secretly be having one in their Schools/Colleges/Offices.

Are you guys funded?
Everyone loves to ask this question. People at startup events, college buddies on WhatsApp groups and even your co-passengers on flights.
And sure, I get it. In the world littered with umpteen startups, funding reflects a certain external validation and “seriousness” of your venture. So nothing wrong with this question, really. But what gets to my nerves is the way the conversation goes next:
