Furthermore, Pradeep emphasizes on an importance of the first 3 years of any startup. And how decisions could be critical to your startup’s health.

According to him, the whole journey divides into 3 parts that are called: seeding, nurturing and growing. Each resembles the length of one year. Pradeep concludes during an interview how you can make your customers super successful and why you need to do so. Another topic he covers is understanding local conditions, because when something works in one region, doesn’t always transfers to another.

Pradeep also shares his experience on how to identify startup’s sweet spot and why you need to identify your perfect customers only in a second year and not the first. Moreover, he contributes his opinion on building processes and establishing cadence within your sales team.
