Journey of Visakh’s entrepreneurship
It was a bumpy ride for Appiness and faced lot of challenges. And that’s what the journey of entrepreneurship is all about. If there are no hurdles then there is no fun. It’s all about how one takes up and get through different roadblocks to build a successful endeavor. Since they delivered world class output from day one, acquiring clients wasn’t a difficult task for them. As a bootstrapped start-up they did face the typical challenges while setting up the infrastructure. Talent acquisition was another major challenge we faced. When you have heavily funded start-ups and well established multi nationals around you, it was difficult to acquire and retain great talent. Exciting projects and a great work culture helped them in retaining the talent.
Roadmap of the company
When comes to UI/UX consulting, they focus on building beautiful and functional experience on web and mobile space. Appiness Interactive is planning to build separate BUs for their various offerings. They are launching few products from their end, both on B2B and B2C space. They focus on “Make in India” and are “Making it for the World”.
