And just not opening my blog page to write everything that I have been wanting to speak about…refer point one for this 😉
Now some serious stuff what occupied most part of my last year:
Scaling the business, Settling into our new premises, Managing Change and all the celebrations and angst that go along with it.
Start of something new is always filled with excitement and anticipation and of course a lot of work to reach there. The excitement of building a start-up is definitely comparable to bringing up a child – each step forward is like a child crawling, walking and eventually running. The biggest learning I have got from this is that there is no instant result or solution, but as along as we learn to be patient and persistent you can make it happen your way. I believe all these lessons good or bad will shape the company and its future.
There are times when you feel you can sprint a marathon , but just like Rome was not build in a day; so can’t a solid institution, it is not just about bricks and mortar but the strong foundation in terms of ethics, culture, people and business practice that lay the foundation to a strong institution.
This has defined our journey from 15 ARK Colony, Alwarpet to 13th Floor Ascendas International Tech Park. We have grown in numbers taking the total team strength from 16 to 100 colleagues now, the square feet from 3500 to 23000; AND 11 to 26 Clients.
This year the transition has been huge : Seven colleagues got engaged and eight got married. Four New Daddys 🙂 and one already a movie Star now
In spite of all the stats above we are still are the same team INXS.
