What strategies did you follow to overcome the challenges imposed by the pandemic?
As the whole world got affected, so we were. During the lockdown, our head office staff operated from home, and the projects staff were working with the clients adhering to all the necessary precautions and regulations. Our revenues slowed down, and new upcoming projects got to hold. Our strategy was to survive and overcome these difficult times. Most of the companies were shut down.But we tried to concentrate on every opportunity that knocked us. We served the private sector focusing on small projects to overcome the difficult period.

Tell us about the milestones of your professional journey that bestowed you with utmost satisfaction. Also, what is the success mantra that made you reach this level?
I have successfully worked in R&D in Defense Research and Development Laboratory in Hyderabad and also in Huawei in almost all the departments. Having done justice to the organizations I have worked for gives me immense satisfaction. I also feel great when I see myself as the leader of two successful exits,
Rasa Communication and Vgro Techno Solutions. My success mantra is my desire to learn and enhance my skills every day. My life goals have pushed me to achieve such professional and academic experience. If we adhere to our values together with passion and dedication, we can achieve our dreams.

Share your anticipation about changing market behaviors, and what are the opportunities you foresee?
