In October, 2013 (previous month), I started a new innings in my career, started my own company with a physical office in my place Visakhapatnam.

Everyone seems to think that one only learns a lesson when they fail. Though that is mostly true, I think lessons can be learnt from successes too!

I remember sitting in one of our brain storming sessions on the features the…

We work hard during the week, looking forward to the weekends to rejuvenate us. But with city life being the way it is today and the needs of the insatiable human spirits makes us easily bored with options we have around us.

"How do you compete in a space that is so crowded that you don't get heard even if you shout out loud?" This was the question that haunted us when we ventured into the event portal space.
We started AllEvents.in as a tiny event aggregation portal with a very simple idea: "A space where everyone can know what is happening around."
There were many other sites with the same objective and it was difficult to stand…Continue
