All the facts here are entirely based on our Start-up life and any resemblance to you or your Start-up is completely coincidental. If any issues rise, we will not settle out of court for a million dollars because we don’t have any.
TWO YEARS! Yes, around 730 days since we started up. We (Co-Founders) have faced both the extremes in our Start-up journey and always cherished the moments that came on our way. VHEEDS – one of the best thing in our lifelist that come true and we planned for a blog post about our two-year ride but thought to start on a lighter note. So, here are some of the facts and moments that we experienced and enjoyed. FACEPALM.
We pay salary, but we don’t take any.
There are three guys who believed us more than we believed ourselves have joined our team after six months of our start-up. Whatever expenses are on our way through the month, we always kept their salary on top priority. Our salary? Thanks to our friends and family who bare all our personal expenses and preventing us from bankruptcy.
Mid 20’s, young and Entrepreneurs too but we don’t have a girlfriend.
Mystery remains unsolved. Still we can’t figure out the reason or able to find the root cause for this world’s biggest problem. One of our developers even tried a poetic approach, Continue reading
Right from Day one at Vheeds, presenting a friendly atmosphere to each and every one of our team is a prime focus. As a part of it, we framed an Awards and Recognition ceremony called “Vheedstar”. Every quarter of a year this event will recognize and appreciate individual performances which brought a great value to Vheeds. We failed to Continue reading
re we supposed to be like this forever?
I vividly remember this question asked by my friends to me, the co-founders of Vheeds, while working for a top MNC IT firm, after experiencing one dimensional currency-centric idle approach towards a career.
Majority of the world’s greatest innovations are the product of one moment, one idea that sparks in the brain. The idea starts to grow within, consuming your thoughts, altering your personality, changing your life forever.When my friends came up with the idea of Vheeds, it turned out to be a passion, a dream rather than just business. It’s a dream to be unique, to innovate, to help, and to be successful. As per the work, the idea promised productive experience, opportunity to work out of the box, to be completely creative with increased responsibilities and infinite fun. So when asked, I absolutely had no second thoughts to be a part of such amazing idea and gladly joined them.
When we wanted to go ahead with the idea of Vheeds, we had our share of criticisms from every corner. We were about to give up a career, that promised us respect, fame, more money, foreign trips, off the roof success, a safe, comfortable and a luxurious corporate life to be precise. Why would anyone want to give up such a life? For many people we had just crossed the line of sanity there. Unfortunately very soon in our careers, we realized that;
o start with, let’s get it straight that a career depends upon an individual’s vision and mission in life. We are the makers and the breakers of whatever happens in our lives because after all we are next to god. Now that might sound too very philosophical, so, let’s get back to what we are here for. Job comparison between MNC and a Start-up.
First of all, as an individual having worked in both MNC and a Start-up, I would like to say that MNC job is like a “dream coming true” and to work in a start-up means “Living a dream” and this says it all with no offence meant. Let’s take a ride down our memory lane and you would realise that we always lived a systematic lives till we get a job in MNC, with books, materials, notes, time tables, preparations and more preparations. Good enough, but what happens when you continue to live the same life even after getting into an MNC job because there everything is pre-written and worked out for you and you MUST follow that pattern. Of course, you will be paid high, given all allowances and comforts but what happens to the real YOU?!
