“A team” – for IT startup
This article talks about how “A team” matters in building a strong business and helping each other in getting results out of any business or idea .
Normally we hear questions and frustration while working on XYZ stuff in your job that i want to do some thing good/great/for someone etc but people not gets path and vision and those who gets vision they comes among big players like facebook, slack, flipkart, paytm and starts getting market share to work on better side of their ideas. Through out my carrier path i met many friends and colleagues those who have same queries about what to do because the work quality that they/we handle is not always what they/we want to do in life and it could be in any stream from technology to arts. I am facing and faced same challenge and tried some hands on entrepreneurship stuff and tried eCommerce business to sell artificial jewellery on Amazon and Shopclues and we did some online marketing on facebook using brand name “Unmomento fashions” .
In India we gets very cheap artificial jewellery available here in our markets and if you go to whole sale market you will find earrings in one 1 Cent or INR 1. We not continued that business due to some challenges that we faced during that time like switching hence and forth to pack and deliver our products and modifying prices to attract more customers and tracking daily orders even though we could outsource those thing but we were in learning phase of entrepreneur ship so we tasted it and learnt a lot from that and some of the learning were that “we were less on resources in form of people” and we felt we should have a good team and also learnt in and out of eCommerce business and now we can see all the challenges a person can face when he is working over any eCommerce business.
Another example normally a techie can thought is opening its own startup where they will be providing their own product and services to clients from where they can earn name and fame and of course money. But we learnt that opening a IT business with just 1 or 2 guys is not sufficient and it require more good people those who have same area of interest to grow and have entrepreneurship in their blood. We started “Collaboration of freelancers” – A Team. We are currently working on it and will be trying to make our self “go to market” model and adding more people and services under our team portfolio where clients can get referenced people from our trusted site. We are open to add more people from reference and ready to categories them under our pricing structure.
I created this collaboration site in single night by creating DNS entries to purchasing servers from AWS and configuring wordpress server and writing and customizing single site page stuff and coordinating with my people that i am aware so that we can show things to client about our team and to answer what we do and how we are selling our resources. There was learning inside this setup from technology implementation to social skills and show casing our values that we can deliver to customers in customizable way as per client requirement as these days all CFO and VP of IT’s are looking for cost cutting in their IT expenditures. We are leaning under it and trying more stuff and will be scaling it up at bigger level. And again there was some learning like how to create your company interface in short duration of time if you have some client interaction to get business.
So to summarize my blog “We need a team” to make things happen so that your business can run smoothly and if you are startup or even big player believe in your colleagues,employees if they are working with you and work as a team instead of working in silo’s and think big while delivering your support and services.
Its a journey toward achieving things with people to get long term benefits or the fruits that you can reap in longer term and big example you can see like Infosys founders and how they have played role in their board of directors in taking their company at next level and i am not specific to Infosys its fundamental of any business if you want to scale at large and coping with this dynamic market you need a need.
Defiantly this blog is not under technical domain but i thought to write it as its base requirement to think on entrepreneur side while building any business and we should accept it in early stage of in corporation of any thing.
