Building, scaling, and spearheading a global business takes a certain degree of mental strength. You bring a lot of people with you on a journey and the buck stops with you. I feel a great deal of responsibility for the business and the people that pour all of their passion, talent, and energy into building it. As for humility, I think it’s important as the head of a company to hire smart people and let them take the reins in the areas of the business you can no longer manage closely. Lastly, but perhaps most importantly, a strong vision and big dreams are crucial when building a company like ours. You need a strong vision and the power to communicate it clearly to the people surrounding you. It’s crucial you’re all on the same page.27 November 2021
I believe Dixa creates a positive change in the world by upending the cold, transactional way most people interact with their favorite brands. People, in general, are so atomized and isolated, especially after COVID, and I like the way our customers are able to create warm and meaningful moments for their customers.27 November 2021
Know your market fit: We were very aware early on which verticals and company sizes we were suited for. We knew we were a great fit for e-commerce, food tech, transport, insurance, gaming etc., and doubled down on the companies whose pain points and growth ambitions we could address and solve with our product.27 November 2021
