Part One: Manipal
A year ago, I recollect the incident that started this madness. In the second year of college, we’d started a services company that made t-shirts, websites and products for people. By the end of the third year, we were doing over INR 30 lakhs in revenue and it was getting incredibly boring. Kartik (our CTO) and me were talking about how we were clocking in just 3 hours of sleep a night and we needed to slow down.
“We’re making quite a bit of money for being students dude” mused Kartik
“Yeah, let’s do something even more challenging. Let’s do something big.”
“What problem hasn’t been solved yet?” asked Kartik
“Let’s do hiring man. Naukri’s is living on borrowed time anyways, let’s dethrone them”
