I was in my final year when I co-founded bluegape.com with one of my batchmate and a junior (Ayush – He was in his second year). Most of the people we came across at that time advised us to take some industry exposure etc before getting into our own venture. We were focused on our Idea and we were determined, and hence launched …Continue

At the initial stage of my career, I used to think that knowing people of repute in my company would help me in my career. So, I made it a point of meeting them at least every 90 days if not in 30. One fine day, it hit me that I am not going to reap any benefit if these people will not take me seriously or will not value me at all.
