PROBLEMS THEY FACED
1)Initially their parents were not very convinced as no one in our families is into business. Everybody is very qualified and into high designations in the service industry.
2)However when they saw the passion in them to do something of their own, they supported them in every way – from moral support, to advice at times to financial support.
3)Money was a big constraint in the beginning. They put in all our savings during our two and half years of job life in Bangalore to start this venture boot strapped and also took some from parents till they found an angel investor.
4)Motivating a team of very well qualified young people to believe in our passion and deliver from a 1 bhk apartment in Bangalore was undoubtedly the most difficult thing.

THEIR INSPIRATIONAL WORDS TO THE YOUNG ENTREPRENEURS
"Just do it. You got to dive into the water if you want to learn swimming. Staying out and calculating might just help you to figure out the right time and the right way to make the final jump but you got to make that jump all on your own. If there is passion in you, there is no way stopping then."
