Craftila is my latest business venture started with two high school friends of mine. Craftila offers unique collectibles and accessories for buying and gifting purpose.
Started in July 2011, Craftila is currently at a stage where we are operating a number of projects. There is a commerce portal which allows site visitors to purchase any of the products featured on the website. Craftila is also partnering with gift galleries for shelf merchandising(image) and taking enquires for corporate gifting. A whole lot go gulp, but the questions remains should startup like Craftila burn its fuel exploring different avenues or run down a straight lane.
As young and motivated individuals, we are passionate about our venture and also realise the importance of doing business smartly. One of our biggest concern is focus and working capital. As our company account approaches RED, it is extremely important for us to seek funds.
I am currently writing a business plan, which is the hardest thing I am finding these days. Not only explaining what I said in my second paragraph on paper is anything but easy but also creating a sustainable and profitable business comprising of all the three functions is a herculean task for an engineer.
WIll appreciate your comments or advice.
