EXCLUSIVE: Founder’s advice to budding entrepreneurs
Concentrating on core business rather than showing off more is the key to success. The failure to boost the startup is the lack of dedication on the ground level. I countered most of the eCommerce sellers they invest the whole fund in developing their site and mobile apps instead to keep the fund for marketing. Many budding entrepreneurs are previously a student and most of their parents are service class people, they need proper guidance and practical knowledge by a mentor (who is businessman) on entrepreneurship in academics , Says Mr Jalaj Mohan.
Provide some statistics like revenues or clients acquisition etc.
Cognify is growing rapidly set a target to 5x its revenue in 2020.
