#Foodfordigitalthought and #Gratitude

Jugular is in that transforming phase as we prepare ourselves to progress on our vision to become the largest digital business ecosystem.

Our roots have been built on giving the first mover digital marketing, martech and social media innovations. Reflecting back at the decade that was, our biggest milestones have been milestones of our client partners. Their passion for customer experience is the reason why few of India’s important digital firsts happened with us.

Thank you for embracing Jugular, your digital business department.

Anyone for creating an ecosystem for sustain first, scale next enterprises?

Sep 10, 2018

A slight drift from the usual digital ramblings:) Bumped into this awesome thread on fund raising by founder of Mixpanel on their fund raising journey and adventures. The few lines he has shared is perhaps going to save years of fund raising experiments for startup founders and for investors who are looking to spot that secret mojo in entrepreneurs! This one is a gem:) Mixpanel by the way is a powerful mobile analytics platform.

On a different note, I think fund raising is romanticized way too much as a metric in a startup journey. It is a good story to believe or fall in love with, but the reality is that less than 1% get lucky. There is also nothing to be proud about times when one was going to run out of money soon and that some Angel bailed them out just in time for helping them live another day. This could be an annecdote for how luck can play a role, but definitely not an example for role modelling!

The grittier and more realistic journeys are those who had no angels and piggy banks to fall back on.

Those few from the 99% drive the economy of the country. Those who had no choice but to be profitable and sustainable first before they scaled anything. Those who had no choice but to persistently innovate and add value. Those whose biggest investors are their customers…

It is important to create an ecosystem of realism which can help entrepreneurs to persevere and build companies that last. An ecosystem that can inspire others to persevere to succeed instead of thinking funding decides whether one should pack their bags on sprint a marathon.

The Story of Social Networks

Apr 12, 2017

Not sure how many of you are early adapting social networking natives from the late 90s and early 2000s. Here is a quick tribute to Ecademy and Ryze- The first online professional networks before the times of the LinkedIns and Facebooks.

For customers, a valuable new customer experience is never ahead of its time. Very vividly remember Ecademy and Ryze. Concepts which were bang on time for the end users, but perhaps not spotted by the right investors at the right time who could understand the progress and potential.

Professional Networking always would have been much better with slightly different takes on the concept of a Professional Network.

Disappointing not have likes of #Ecademy around at a time where everything digital revolves around a network! As entrepreneurs, it would have been a really lonely world for the founders to persevere the way they did. Kudos to the Ecademy founders Thomas Power and Penny Power who fought it out till they could not fight the inevitable! Coming to think of it their concept of a social network was lot more real and lasting. Their users like me still stay connected and stay valuable to each others’ professional goals.
