My true learning has come from all my failures and now i know what is takes to build a sustainable & scalable technology business. It is all about team, team & team which needs to be groomed and well fed.
My Journey So Far:
It has been 12 years since I started my professional career as mobile app developer, technology has come a long way since then, I have seen the world of mobile phone changing both in terms of memory, screen and performance. Feature phone to smartphone transition has been revolutionary and I have witnessed all these as a developer, tech lead, product manager & now as a product owner.
In this journey I had the privilege of joining a tech startup Twist Mobile in 2009 it was then only a team of 2 people and i was the third one to join. We struggled for the first year of the starting phase with multiple app failures. We then shifted our focus on an image based mobile solution which leveraged not so advanced mobile camera to enhance user picture and make them look smart & funny, it worked wonders and the series of image based app helped our company become a profitable venture and we went on to become the fastest growing mobile company in Asia.
We were the top app publisher and developer on the Nokia Ovi store. But that success soon faded with the market shifting swiftly to smartphones where feature phone sales suddenly fell apart and so were our revenues. We do raised funds from Matrix Partners and become a 200 person company in no time. As the company was going through the some strong transition and scale suddenly things started to look dark for me as my role was limited and so i decided to move on with no idea what i will do next.
Then Mobibit idea was conceived with an intent to build quality games and apps for Android and iPhone users. This decision to start on my own was not easy, there were a lot of tension, anxiety, all kinds of emotions were flowing all around and within me. But due to some financial support from closed family network Mobibit managed to survive and now here I am after running it for 6 years, after serving 50 + Clients, After developing 100+mobile & web apps all complexity, struggling to scale. .
There has been multiple reason for our current situation and no one reason can be clearly pointed out. Is everything lost not at all, we have a trusted brand, good client network, but that is not sufficient, It needs some strong finance infusion which is hard to come by.
Its hard time for me but i have decided to move on to more challenging and bigger role where i can bring all my learnings into practice to solve larger world problems through technology. I have learned to be humble, to be real, to be practical and most importantly, I have made some good friends in this journey which will always be my true asset.
I always say:
Invest in people and relationship building it will always remain your most valued possession, when you will say goodbye to this world
Now I am open to be hired, to offer my services to startups and businesses who are willing enough to have a person like me, who has mostly worked in small technology startups building them from scratch. My decade old experience being a technology leader, I strongly feel can help early growth stage companies to scale to new heights. I always love to act fearlessly taking some bold steps, adapting to new market demands.
I have learned that people up-Skilling at regular interval has to be the key focus area for every small and big level company. As it helps them to be competitive and sustainable. So would love to facilitate such initiatives with full vigor and enthusiasm.
