What was the first moment when you thought to start a Business?
We were in the college when we had our group name called Digitizers. However, we never did anything to digitize during college time but always had an instinct to do something of our own. We started right after our graduation with the thought to start a business just like another Gujarati :-).
Every business has an up/down moment. Do you want to share anything special with us?
Yes, every business should go through high and low because if you are not part of the low time, you have not learned to make mistakes. Therefore just like every business we also had bad times especially in the financial crunch due to lack business. Still, we have to feed all the salaried members and keep the momentum high. In those times we as business owners didn’t take salaries home but made sure members of our company get their remunerations in time. We tried launching a couple of ideas at an early stage of our service business and failed miserably. Actually, for first ten years, we had blur vision of what is Digicorp is all about, whether to become product company or service company?
What is your core product or service?
What is the most exciting thing related to your business?
We are the company having a different flavor than any business based in our locality. Especially when you talk about culture, we give equal importance to each voice and make sure that it is heard. We always try to do things differently, and that’s what people like and admire it.
What is your roadmap and Goal for upcoming years?
To create A team for long term sustainability along with a good profit to venture more ideas from within and grow Digicorp horizontally.
What is the definition of success for you? How do you see yourself?
Success is not the destination but its journey which one should cherish. We would like to create or be part of products which has the real impact on a human being and solve their problem. If we could achieve this one day, that’s our success!
What are your views on competitors?
Technology is changing so fast that sometimes It ‘s hard to identify in which race we are? So try not to see what our competitors are doing rather we follow a lot of US companies and apply their best practices.
The biggest risk you have ever taken?
Continuously invested in new ideas! Out of them, we are yet to get success!
What do you think about your company culture?
We are unusually transparent with our clients and employees.” – Being true to this value, we have published our HR policies online. We have very open and honest environment where I earlier said anyone could raise their voice directly to founders. We believe a lot in growing every member’s different skills and keep one on one mentorship if required. We stress a lot on best practices on product development which in turn help each member’s growth.
