‘Jo bhi karunga,  usme khush rahunga, kidhar bhi mein kaam karu, I want to be happy’ – Akash Gehani

Here is a story of an intelligent boy who grew up in the suburbs of Mumbai with one mantra ‘never take yourself seriously’

But when it came to starting a business, Akash was very serious about helping small amd micro businesses to grow and help them trust the internet. Instamojo started with Payment Links – a simple URL that one can copy and paste anywhere on the internet and receive payments online via any payment mode.  Today Instamojo has 3 Million+ payment links, 50,000+online stores and a 5 million + monthly reach

Akshay Dutt talks to Akash Gehani about his early days and how the idea for Instamojo was hatched

Some key takeaways from this show are: How to stick to your vision when faced with fast up-scaling options.  Networking the right way to help your business grow. Being persistent with ideas inspite of initial failures and how to keep constantly learning from your environment
