When and how did you start your business? Is there an interesting story here?
Of course there is an interesting story behind, and I am delighted to share it with you. After graduating from university back in 2019, I started looking for jobs relevant to my field of expertise. Somehow I selected and started working for one of the IT companies near the Ahmedabad Area. The Environment and company work structure gave me problems related to health and totally ruined my personal life. Then I went to HR’s cabin and explained my concern regarding the problems I faced. The HR told me that you’re ruining your own life and confused about what to do. Then I leave that company!
I thought that now I don't want to go to any companies, due to my horrible experience.
Then suddenly I realized I can start my own company and started working 12 hours a day and 84 hours a week! Due to high productivity and innovative thinking, Within Just two years of starting, the company has gained 100+ global clients!
