A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
Starting up is a difficult thing to do. No, seriously! It’s like running a 100 metre race which is very different from running a marathon. Marathon runners have the opportunity and time to look back, adjust pace and plan whereas the 100 metre runner has to keep running forward whatever the case maybe, there is hardly any scope to look back, introspect and adapt. Moreover, if you are in the technology industry, the world seems to revolve just a little bit faster.
Starting something from scratch, it’s realization into a company and actually running it is an unparalleled experience. There is so much to learn that no book in any syllabus could cover. In starting up, the beauty is, you don’t just learn about departments in your organisation or human resources or finances or technicalities of data; you learn a lot about yourself, your character, your limits, your discomfort and that is what develops you as a person.
This New Year, we thought of reminiscing 2016 with what we have learned, achieved, missed and enjoyed.
Firstly, we would like to say that it has been one hell of a journey! Apart from the fact that we have had many sleepless nights, unkempt beards, excessive caffeine, nervous breakdowns, exile from family…everything else has been pretty amazing!
Well all of that being said, it’s difficult to list out everything that we did in the past year, we would like to mention some of the things that stood out for us to look back and cherish.
We launched in May this year and have come a long way in ~250 days since then.
On a more personal level, there were a lot of areas where Pedagoge stood out as a team and showed its uniqueness. We’ve not only recorded our product data, but our people data too!
Thank you people for your commitment towards us!
The last one went over 30+ hours and was capped off with a beer drinking challenge. Our techie is still in his hangover 😛
From Fish to Butter Chicken. From Filter Coffee to Lassi. We’ve got it all!
B.Tech, LLB, B. Com, BCA, MCA, BBA, CA, CS, MEM, MBA. You name it, we have it!
We are a company based out of Kolkata, it is imperative for it to have a culture of its own. Being a democratic organisation, we like to follow the crowdsourcing model for defining our culture.
And that folks, is how we reminisce our 2016! We hope to improve on all of these and paint a better, bigger and crazier picture of 2017.
