Excerpts from our exclusive interview with him:
Q1) What gets you out of bed in the morning & what’s your source of motivation?
I wake up each morning with mixed feelings – excitement, anxiety, adventure, and challenges. The best part about waking up and getting out of bed is not having a regular and fixed-job. Each day is new, fresh, and unpredictable for me which gives me a kick, and look forward to starting my day.

Q4) What risks are you facing?
The technology industry is full of opportunities but this comes with a bit of competition from other market players. It often becomes difficult to get your business noticed. Also, since we are a start-up and still in the early phase which makes it challenging to keep enough cash surplus and cash inflow sometimes.
Q5) Have you considered any alliance/partnership?
We are just in the very early stage and to sustain in the market we need financial support, so yes we are looking for that support and we are trying to out to different Angel firms for the same.

Q7) What comes first for you money or emotions?
Money is important to run the business while emotions are useful while dealing with people in an business. Thus, both are equally important.
Q8) What are your strengths and weaknesses?
Strength is my passion. Whatever I do, learn or create, I do it with a lot of passion, enthusiasm, and hardworking. My emotions are sometimes, I think as my weakness.
Q9) Tell us about an accomplishment you are most proud of?
I am proud of what I have gained and lost in this entrepreneurial journey. Quitting my job and pursuing my passion was not an easy decision, It is an accomplishment for me.
Seeing your product adding value in this world is the biggest accomplishment. Covering my hometown with my services is also a big achievement for me.
Q10) How do you handle the pressure?
As a start-up founder, I always want to meet the client’s expectations & if possible, reach above it and deliver satisfactory results. This indeed creates immense pressure. There is no greater relief for me than a happy client. We put our best efforts to make our clients satisfied with our work. I look forward to not only gaining new clients but retaining the old ones. The best way to handle all this is to always remain positive and keep oneself motivated.
Q11) What piece of advice would you give to college graduates who want to become entrepreneurs??
Believe in what you are giving to the world. If you do not believe in the value addition from your product or service, no will buy it. Also, it’s not the product you are selling; it’s you whom you are selling. So be good at selling yourself.Prashant Kumar
Q12) Tell us about your early life & How has being an entrepreneur affected your family life?
I belong to a middle-class family, was born in Purnea ( a small town in Bihar) on 10th Nov 1993 to Mr. Awadhesh Kumar Bishwas and Mrs. Lily Devi. I am an elder child of my family, I have one younger brother & one sister “Pranav & Pooja”. Even so, my parents belong to the village area, but always think big & send us to the hostel in a big town for study & create a better future.
Our parents did lots of sacrifices to create a better life for us. Since childhood, I was passionate about Technologies & my family always supported me for “Whatever I wanted to do”.
“What I’m today, all credit goes to my parents, they were always standing behind me in every situation & pushed me to do best in life. They are key of my life.”
