What inspired you to build the above product /service?
Inspiration can strike from anywhere…but since my first venture Green Flag Branding Solutions Private Limited is into Brand Management and Activations, we required a lot of event set up to be done, in Corporates , Malls , Tech Parks etc…had to rely on the local tent house people for the supplies…I wasn’t satisfied with the quality of the products and services and this is what clicked me to start a new venture which will assist me and the whole event management and branding fraternity with quality products on rent and on time event services.
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
The most challenging part I faced till now is the lack of skilled people in the field of event operations, lack of innovation and professionalism in event artists, venue decorators and tent house suppliers.
