Dear all, I found myself pondering about the past years and wanted to discuss it with everyone.
began to conceptualize Wittybee in the June of 2012. At that time all
my ideas were nothing but in the form of cloudy imaginations, ball pen
sketches and really bad UI designs. But I had a burning
desire - to build the greatest team collaboration app ever and benefit
the human race - a deep hunger and thirst to make my life "count". And
that hunger still lives today, ever with more fire.
of you who know me well know that money has never been my only goal. It
has always been a by-product of my curiosity to create meaningful
things - like the world's first ultrasonic domestic gas meter built out
of discrete components - where we made the impossible possible in only 2
years from 2010 to 2012.
can be planned, but seldom go as per plans. For example, last April I
realized that my UI design had come up not quite so well and the
entire activity page needed an overhaul. Next, last year an investor who
had promised a large investment invested a smaller amount due to
losses incurred in an unfortunate accident in their factory. Then early
this year, a Korean client held back on their payment to us due to their
own finance problems. That's why we call this an
bill on the soft board of our Desktop App team - "You need the heart of
a lion to make this happen". Today, after 3 years we have the finest
syncing technology available in the market, and as per my vision, a
great collaboration app - with a potential to become the most useful
tool in the industry.
see, when we talk to others, we tend to put ourselves in their shoes.
We tend to see them as we are. The same is the case with me. I see
curiosity, hunger and a desire to make a difference in people I meet. I
see love for learning and solving challenges. I see lives that are not
centered around making money, doing trivial comparisons and
pleases me immensely today is to see that all of you are lions. You've
gone beyond your comfort zones to help Wittybee in sales and marketing.
You've helped in writing the user guide, something that is not your
core expertise and helped take Wittybee towards completion.
take some time this week, when your mind is fresh and unburdened, to
write about your good experiences and learnings at Wittybee. Write what
you learnt from your seniors - not technical but human traits. Write
about the freedom and opportunities you found. Write about your good
