What the co-founder says-
“It’s been a rollercoaster ride. We celebrated every success, every moment of joy and pushed ourselves harder during tough days. Yes there were lots of tough days, days when we did not do any sales for 45 days, days when the website was under malware attack and then blacklisted by Google, month on month negative cash flows, but persistence was the key. Like every start-up, there were problems faced concerning getting good deals from vendors.”
“When we started a lot of service providers out rightly rejected us based on our size. We came out stronger and then came the plan of having corporate tours. An entirely managed experience where we had built our own outdoor and training team and started doing an activity and experiential learning programs. These services turned the table for us and gave the thrust we needed, and we now have served more than 14000 people and counting.”
