How is your venture different from others in the same segment?
When did you realize that the next step from a 9-to-5 was entrepreneurship?
Before becoming an entrepreneur I worked in the industry and reached a point where I felt that the there was no growth or was very limited. While working in the same industry, I have realized how much pressure and shortfalls this industry had and the potential for Health Insurance Industry was tremendous and growing and very few people concentrated on the basis of making it right.
What has been the most difficult experience for you so far?
My experience for any new company in the technology sector is doing the first sales, because whenever you try to approach a prospect the first thing you are asked is your client list, I believed in what I was doing and had faith in my god and kept trying eventually it clicked with a major American company among the top 500 fortune companies becoming my first client.
What is the biggest blooper you made as an amateur entrepreneur?
When I wanted to expand outside India, I got into an exclusivity agency agreement with a company, and as that company had no defined targets, my growth potential was high but the company didn’t grow because the agency with whom I got into arrangements didn’t do a good job.
What drives you to stay buckled on the rollercoaster ride of entrepreneurship?
The challenges and believing in what I am doing is what keeps me going. I have done my ground work and based on the facts I know I am doing what the market requires; it’s always a matter of time before it gets clicked.
What is the status of your organization regarding growth for the coming 2 years?
We now have got enough opportunities, we are hiring people and getting ready for major expansion in different countries, we are in the process of setting up strong infrastructure, to be ready for the growth.
What are the areas that challenge one in the Indian market?
Indian Market is in need driven and the Consumers opting for the unique new products at an economical cost. The major challenge would be to breakthrough your product and persuade the user’s to proceed for any product across the conventional methods of operations. Challenges and hurdles are inevitable for an entrepreneur in any business. All the challenges can be turned as opportunities by persistent hard work and determination. If the entrepreneur has distinct business model that can innovate and bring benefit to any industry business than the usual to fulfill the needs of the market then the process pathway would be easier.
