How did you get the idea of The Digit Nine?
The current company , that I’m working at , was in the phase of getting an investor on board + so many other things. I couldn’t find one platform , that gave me an opportunity to learn, make changes and then PITCH to investors on a global platform , there were agencies but it was all broken down in various parts.
Thats when , this struck me , where we could get mentors , train the start-ups , get founders – learn best practices and then get the entrepreneurs ready for their Pitch to the investors all under one roof in 5 Days .
Why did you decide to start with The Digit Nine?
It was time , I put my vision and my dreams in work and get to reality . It was a wake up call , which was on snooze for years .
What is the vision behind The Digit Nine?
The Vision is to be that one stop global solution to all Business and Financial Needs.
How difficult was the start and which challenges you had to overcome?
Honestly , the difficulty was my current work , where I’m working as Chief Operation officer .So giving time to ideate something new and from scratch was difficult . But with time management and different time -zones , we have left that challenge far behind and is ready for the first competition to be held in London, United Kingdom ,this May 2020.
