Great Companies: With the onset of Global Pandemic Coronavirus, do you think it will be a major setback for budding entrepreneurs?
Sanjeev Jain: No, the setback is temporary. This will only give a push to my ideology - "Disrupt your business yourself before you get it as a gift from someone". We are in the world of VUCA, this Pandemic has only given us a glimpse into the future. Most businesses will not survive if they do not reinvent themselves. With exponential growth of Technologies such as AI, Cloud, IOT & Robotics, a huge amount of repetitive work will be automated. Businesses that do not add value in new and unique ways will be eliminated. It's time to sit back and re-evaluate your business. What problem is your business solving ? Is it worth solving anymore ? Can you solve it better than others using the latest technology ? Its time to automate all the routine work in your business and start thinking of the Next Thing for your industry\domain. Great Companies: You have a lot of Happy Consumers gathering from your testimonials, how do you manage to keep them so happy?

I have therefore developed a completely practical approach in my company to develop "Repeatable Systems" using tech to solve all these issues permanently. This is the reason why our clients are happy and find lasting value in our offerings.

Whatever we provide is practical with zero theory and demonstrated applications that we have tested in our own 3 companies. Furthermore, we are constantly finding new technology to solve the same old business problems in more innovative ways and training our customers on using the same
