The Mini App That Is A Boon To Run Businesses Online
Isn’t it frustrating when your phone slows down because of having too many apps? Don’t you just hate it when you have to pick and choose a limited number of apps to keep on your phone? Well no more, thanks to Anand Kelaginamani’s Goodbox app. The Goodbox app is a mega app with thousands of mini apps within it, allowing for businesses to create their app in minutes, and saving consumers the hassle of downloading multiple apps. A win-win for all!
An alumnus of NIT Surathkal and IIM Bangalore, Anand was always drawn to entrepreneurship. He says, “Entrepreneurship somehow caught my imagination at a young age during my under graduation at NIT Surathkal. I attempted multiple small ideas which allowed me to get my hands dirty and taught me few lessons. It was a natural pull when I found the right team later. It has been a humbling experience so far. I have got to learn quite a bit.” Nothing like hands-on practical experience to get the best lessons from.
We would like to build a global product out of India. Building and taking Goodbox to its zenith is the only goal. We want every business to have a mini app and run their business online.”
Success isn’t a lack of failure, but the ability to rise up higher every time you fall. The ups and downs of entrepreneurship are tricky to manage, and risks need to be taken, despite not knowing the outcome, and only with time can you gauge if they’ve paid off. Anand says, “There have been many such moments when the going got tough. The transition period is particularly memorable. It is always a tricky decision to pivot. It’s a tussle between focus and a reality check. Looking back to that time today, I am happy knowing that it was indeed a good decision.”
Building a company is very different from managing a company. Be prepared for tough times. Belief, optimism, and confidence in self are crucial. They will get bruised many a times.”
Buoyed by confidence in his idea and the determination to make it greater, Anand says, “Goodbox is a big idea. It has massive scope in what it can become. We would like to build a global product out of India. Building and taking Goodbox to its zenith is the only goal. We want every business to have a mini app and run their business online.”
A seasoned businessman, Anand shares handy advice for aspiring entrepreneurs, “The most important thing to do is to overcome that initial hesitation and get started. It’s never too early to start. Building a company is very different from managing a company. Be prepared for tough times. Belief, optimism, and confidence in self are crucial. They will get bruised many a times.”
Anand Kelaginamani is the definition of success today. But, he has seen his fair share of challenges, and instead of getting bogged down by them, he chose to tackle them for the better. A tough situation is only a test, pass it and the rewards are all yours.
