The core team consist of Vidushi Mathur, Amruta Bhatt and Shivangi Marathe who take care of back-end functionality and ensure the team delivers quality output without being loaded.

Rasika says “My motivation to get into this was my daughter. I want her to value herself and not give up when times are tough and there is no way out. This was the time where everyone was telling me that it was ok to take a break and get back when my daughter grows up – but I wanted to give it an honest shot and heart in heart I knew – “Koshish karne walon ki, Kabhi Haar nahi hoti”. When you have nothing to loose, Whatever you do will be great !”

“Revenues and margins are dipping in the industry – Especially with the quality expectation that the clients have. But I guess that is a challenge with everyone across markets. Hence we have decided to expand base in various other language support services functions and expand into other languages too. We are also exploring how machine intervention can help improve human efficiency” Rasika told Launch Story.

Rasika’s advice to budding entrepreneurs.

  • Think human and be Human.
  • Value your team only then will they be able to give their best.
  • Remember that any organisation has a top-down culture, so it’s very important to lead with an example. Always ensure you measure yourself on the same scale on which your team is getting rated.
