Below are the highlights of the interview between Dev Garg and Insights Success:
Take our readers through your journey being at the help of Easyanalytic.
My journey at Easyanalytic started in 2014 when I was still a senior at the University of Minnesota. I took few university tech projects which although didn’t pay enough, gave me a direction to who we are today. Right after graduation in late 2014, I moved full-time into EA with a vision of a unique ecosystem where start-ups can come to build, fund, launch, and grow their ideas. Over the years, we relentlessly worked with startups ranging from bootstrapped to companies with 100M+ in valuation where we bring a tailored solution and hands-on expertise to fill their specific gaps in their journey.
What were the challenges you came across in your career as a CEO at Easyanalytic and prior to working at other companies?
The journey of starting a company is never easy. From day 0, when you are getting ready to change the world with your brilliant idea to the day your idea gets acquired or gets folded (which happens more often than we think), you face numerous challenges as a leader. The ones who tackle these challenges strategically and persistently are the ones who have a higher chance of survival. Most of the noticeable challenges I faced over the years are no different from what many other startup leaders face.
One of the challenges we faced early during the growth phase was managing cash flow to feed the growing machine. My vision for Easyanalytic was not to build just a tech product firm but a complete solution for startups. This vision required bringing on talent across technology, business, finance, legal, product, marketing, PR, and much more. My job here was to be good at basic math, revenue in vs expenses out while staying true to the vision.
Taking into consideration, the current pandemic, and its impact on global economies, how are you driving the company to sustain operations and ensuring the safety of your associates and employees at the same time?
Well before the pandemic, our teams were already working virtually and so although the pandemic did affect us in more than one way, our working style wasn’t too affected.
