Looking back, a message that Sahil wants to share with budding entrepreneurs is that; “We faced tough times related to product development, team and funds, but as the old saying goes. Tough times don’t last but tough people do and so does the startup / company. When I chose the path of entrepreneurship I decided that there is no turning back. Turning your idea into reality takes lot of efforts. Sometimes I felt as if there are a million disassembled pieces of a puzzle and I have to complete it without an image, the image of the complete puzzle you hold is only in your mind.”
