In general, I am not an emotional or sentimental type but today its kind of mixed feeling.
When we came to our current facility at Ramapuram in Jan 2010 with 19 employees on board and our balance sheet was worse than my 10th Standard report card.
We grew at an unbelievable pace in this office and we made millions. We took this office space as a bare shell and built it brick by brick to our taste. If I can say that our entrepreneurial trip was a roller coaster ride then this office is our train.
I Like this office for lot of reasons. For any business, first 3 – 4 years will be very crucial with lots of ups and downs. Most of the good and rough stuffs for us happened here. Its very important for start-ups to stay lean and still manage to grow. We got that cushion with this facility.
People see a lot of cons with this facility like the looks, parking issues etc but I see lot of pros like transportation, restaurants and the location is far more better than the places we have seen for leasing at OMR.
In spite of moving to bigger and better infrastructure, am not sure whether any of our future offices will be as special as this one.
I will certainly miss my walks to this office from my residence and lot more.
