Share some details about the investments that you have been able to fetch for the business till now.
I belong to the real league of Entrepreneurs, and the true meaning of Entrepreneurship is that you create value for the people. Being an entrepreneur, we believe in funding our own company and we do not believe in fetching investments. Therefore, ours is a self-funded start-up and throughout it would always remain self-funded itself. We have never pitched our idea to the investors or the venture capitalists or to the angel investors. We reached break-even in the first month itself, then we bootstrapped our startup ourselves, and now hoverRobotix is all set on growth trajectory
