Let’s start

Hey, am starting of here with a simple introduction and hopefully many more questions and observations to come in the next few weeks. To tell you my story- completed my computer engineering and started working with TCS (one of the largest IT companies in India – $ 7bn annual revenue). Worked 3 years as a Java Programmer and SAP developer to realize that I needed to do more. More on on my own. More to understand problems and solve them, more on sales and marketing, on entrepreneurship. Hence resigned from TCS and started putting together a business plan on e-learning as it fascinated me and that was something that was introduced to me by my elder cousin who was working on Medical Transcription. We co-founded emPower – A start-up to help hospitals and small practices with online compliance training. We toiled hard to get the product in place, sales and marketing done on a really tight budget. Although we did a decent job, and tried to solve a real problem but I guess the timings were not right. Our primary market the healthcare practices were only looking to merge with the more established hospitals who already had the systems in place. We had to start looking for more burning issues. One thing that was on my mind was helping students aged 4-14 in Math and English as some of them get lost in the plethora of tools out there ready to teach them through videos etc.  We had to do our due diligence, understand the problem more deeply and then begin the journey once again… How did it go? More in the next post. Thanks Hardik
