Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?
Bharath H C : In the first year of the company, when we tried to reach the people in native through our services they did not accept us. Their mindset was fixed that Bangalore companies are good in services so they did not provide any consignments/projects. Students also did not have much interest in work in our company. We struggle to pay monthly expenses for company maintenance. We approached so many banks with our innovative ideas for loans but none of them were ready to approve loans. Gradually in second and third year our business increased by mouth-to-mouth spreading of our satisfied clients and students. As we hired the employees we needed to pay them salaries which was the main challenge for us. Also in the end of third year and beginning of fourth year, Covid-19 Pandemic gave a huge blow to our business which was tending to reach success level.
