Kindly throw some light on your professional background & experience that helps in moulding strategic business modules for Gloify.
After gaining more than three years of experience as a software engineer post my graduation at IIT-Bombay in 2008, I embarked on my first entrepreneurial venture­ FoodTang, where I handled every-thing end-to-end. This year-long endeavour taught me lots of business lessons on what needs to be done and what shouldn't be. Playing to my strengths, I moved-on to 99tests (a crowd-sourced software testing platform) as its Technical Co-Founder. This bestowed me with a fair understanding of various frontend, backend & DevOps technologies and more importantly helped me to crack the code to connect business to technology. As I was well-aware of all the nuances involved in the product industry when I founded Gloify in 2017, I could easily understand our clients' problem statement and build a complete product that can solve it using the right technology. This strategy not only helped us to retain existing clients, but also to attract more clients through word-of-mouth reference.

What is the future roadmap set for your company?
We intend to continuously invest in diverse technologies (machine learning, recommendation sys-tem & blockchain) to build cutting-edge digital products for meeting all the advanced requirements and delivering high performance. We would also be integrating more relevant verticals (like digital marketing) to our port-folio so that we can offer a 360o solution at a lower cost, but with a way better service. Plans are afoot to broaden our geographical spread by opening an office in the US, thus further solidifying our offshore presence. We also aim to open our branches all over India (starting with Delhi) and increase our headcount to 150 in a few years.
