This is a huge step forward for Heckyl, which is also a 2011 Tech 30 company. Talking to Mukund, as a startup entrepreneur, how easy or difficult was it to enter into this partnership? He says, "As a start-up one of the challenges is to prove that you are the best in your offerings and you are here to stay (not an over-night operator). Also you are essentially partnering with organizations who have proved the value of their product offerings over a period of time, hence it really takes a lot of efforts and time to make the partnership successful as the end users should be benefitted out of this partnership. Heckyl faced its own set of challenges in similar terms but were lucky to have met and interacted with the right people for a faster decision making, which essentially helped in moving into the application integration much faster."
