STORY BEHIND THE SUCCESS
Like every new start-up, they faced a lot of difficulties in the beginning. They had a very new and fresh concept in this field and it took a lot of time and hard work to get their name out and convince the clients that their approach and techniques work and yield better results.
Starting with one client at a time, they made sure that the focus was a hundred percent on that client’s requirements, and they delivered. This gave them the confidence to work with multiple clients at once, and now they have more than 78 satisfied clients onboard.
“The major lesson that I learnt from our struggling days is to give 110% and ensure to keep in mind the Vision and Mission of why the company was started.”~Mr. Uday Daljeet Singh Kang, Chief Marketing Officer | International Delivery Head at GreenPenn
The most difficult challenge that most entrepreneurs face is running the show themselves: they have to be the Chief of everything, and give 18-20 hours a day to make sure they deliver. Mr. Kang says, “Be prepared for rejections, but never lose hope and keep moving forward towards your vision.”
The company was founded on pragmatic and genuine principles. To be successful, they believed, they must deeply understand each client as an individual, and must have the expertise to meet all the requirements of the clients. They ensure that these principles are followed with all their clients, and this has been one of the major reasons for their success.
They have the best panel of CTOs and technology partners that are evolving at a very rapid rate. It allows them to be up to date with the latest technology which can be integrated with their existing processes and can help yield better results.
CHALLENGES OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP
There is no book or manual that can be used to become a successful entrepreneur, but there are a couple of things that need to be kept in mind, Mr. Kang explains.
Networking: It is one of the major essentials required to become a successful entrepreneur. Networking with like-minded people or with people who are tenured or experienced in the same field as yours will give you a lot
of information which you require to get the ball rolling for yourself or to help you mitigate the risks involved.
Managing Money : If you cannot manage your money, there is a very less chance of you managing a business. It is simple as that. You should know where your money goes every month, hence budgeting is the key.
Hiring the correct people: As an entrepreneur giving control of any aspect to another person can be challenging, as new entrepreneurs tend to be control freaks. But having an effective and experienced staff will give you access to new strengths and take most of the burden off your shoulders, which will help you focus on what you should be doing, which is thinking and implementing the next steps and strategies for your company.
Adapting to new trends and technologies: As technology is evolving at a very rapid rate, you being an entrepreneur should be up to date with the latest technologies so that you remain a step ahead of your peers and competitors.
Research and development is one of the most important aspects of GreenPenn. Without the strategies designed by the company, and without their successful implementation and results, it would be impossible for GreenPenn to implement the strategies for our clients. R&D is thus the major aspect of the company in order to develop new strategies and products to stay ahead in the race in this competitive marketplace.
VISION AND VALUES
The company as a whole has ingrained values and vision to stay true to their goals and continue on their path to success. Some of these are:
Integrity: They are honest, ethical and treat others with fairness, dignity and respect.
