My Journey While Moving Ahead In My Career:
Being a part of only 2 people team, I learnt things hands-on and that helped me explore more and learn from the mistakes I made. I knew for sure that I can learn and build anything when it comes to tech.
I started my company from a 3 tier city when my kid was just 2 years old. The startup ecosystem did not exist at all at that time, the firm was started by me and my husband. My husband had never worked in India, he had only worked in the US until then. The work ethics and dynamics of working in India are very different from working in the US. Being a mom was also a big challenge as there was hardly any support system. I remember attending so many meetings with my kid playing at the office. We believe in being customer-funded rather than investor funded, thus ran our firm in the bootstrap mode for a good 5 years. The journey has been promising until now, we grew from 1 city to 15 cities in the 4 years time and are currently serving 130+ hospitals and have more than 60,000,00 health records on our platform.
