Entrepreneurship is a constant learning process for improvement. One of the key lessons, I learned was to never give up on clients even when the chips were down. This approach helped us gain the trust of clients which got us good business in the long run.

I believe any business is about providing value to the clients and money is just a by-product.

I am contributing my bit to the world’s development by supporting various Y-Combinator start-ups.
Tell us how you’ve approached change.
As the saying goes, change is the only constant. To continue to work in a volatile environment of information technology, we adopted the change. We have seen technologies come and go and we have coped up really well with these changes. We have gracefully accepted all the changes which came on our way.
The Road Ahead
We are one of the fastest growing IT organizations of India with transition and learning in our blood. We have learned from our past experiences that technologies that seem hot today can be seen being pushed to oblivion in absolutely no time. We are navigating very challenging domains such as translation services and IoT and are ready to push our limits to excel in those domains. We plan to become a 400+ member company using adaptability and understanding every client’s distinct needs. Tudip’s relatively small size makes it easier to adapt to newer technologies to work in sync with clients’ vision and preference. We are preparing an incredibly young and hardworking workforce mentored by developers who have tremendous coding experience and have iterated through entire agile product development lifecycle multiple times.
