Komal Goyal, Co-Founder at Morff


Great Companies:How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Komal Goyal: During our varied experiences, i.e the founders, me and my partners, while working with different industries realised that there is a huge gap between businesses and designers. Entrepreneurs lack access to quality designers and freelancers find it difficult to secure projects. There was also an element of being unreliable and the trust factor was missing in these arrangements. This is where we have tried to build this platform where both parties can communicate, interact and work in a successful collaboration which results in credible achievement and is a win-win for both factions.

Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Komal Goyal: Design is still in its nascent state in India and this reflects in the Indian economy. It gets challenging for entrepreneurs to understand the impact of design on their business. Usually they are clueless about their design needs and how to get this across to the designer. Freelancers faculty in also have difficulty communicating about their ideas and the project design process. Lack of exposure and awareness of design needs is a major challenge. Communication and educating about the design process is also a challenge which we have managed to overcome with our assisted project management.
