What inspired you to build the above product/service?
After graduating from university, I was expected to join my family’s business. However, I was convinced that Information Technology will be the future, and being part of the tech ecosystem that is full of inspirational new-age entrepreneurs, I was convinced that it is the perfect opportunity to gain knowledge. My passion and interest in the IT industry lead me to be open-minded to learning new things. Starting with web development, I became curious to explore more and learn about product development. Following some experience in the industry and identifying unaddressed issues within the online community and digital marketing, I found iTechnolabs Inc to fill the gap I thought existed in this space.
What was the most challenging part of your journey till now?
As with most startups, laying the foundation for a new business entails many challenges. One of the biggest challenges, especially in the early stages, is finding the right people, mentoring them, and creating a collaborative team of individuals that are eager to grow together and individually.
Creating a work environment that fosters constructive competition, comradeship, and a healthy work-life balance requires patience on the part of the product owner.
How did you overcome initial mindset challenges?
Honestly, it’s like starting anything from scratch, whether you are building a new routine, tackling a new challenge, or directing your own company. Despite the fear of failure, there is also the drive to go the extra mile, step by step, day by day. I am currently focusing on strategy, which requires understanding our clients’ needs, communicating our services, and applying our expertise, collaboration, and research to ensure successful campaigns and projects.
According to you, what are the three qualities an individual must have to achieve success?
In my opinion, entrepreneurs should not limit themselves from evolving their business, especially during times of low productivity.
Starting a business requires entrepreneurs to stay current with the latest technologies and trends relevant to their specific industry.
For individuals to remain relevant within an industry, they should consider ways to demonstrate their value beyond their typical services.
What is your life mantra?
It’s not what you cannot do, but what you can do. So, give your all!
Which online tools/ services/ apps do you use the most and would like to recommend as well?

Share any one habit which you think makes you more productive.

Share any one habit that you wish to change in yourself.
Sometimes, I find it difficult to be patient. It frustrates me when family, friends, or colleagues delay making important life decisions. The tendency to take too long to act often results in people missing out on many excellent opportunities. In spite of this, I am attempting to become more patient.
What are your plans for the next 3 years?
As a company, our goal is to become the most trusted IT software partner for as many companies as possible while introducing solutions that have never existed before.
If you get a chance to start your career again what would you do differently this time?
As a self-financing business startup, I learned some valuable lessons after establishing the business that I wish I had known before I began operations. Besides, it would have been helpful if I had explored social media advertising earlier.
What are your top three gateway destinations?
USA, Australia and London
