Plug N Play – Pods for Startups to Build Rapid Engineering Teams

Posted On: 22 June, 2021

What happens when you want spin faster than your own speed. You look for speed that helps you exceed your own expectations. Being a successful entrepreneur is a similar experience. You may be perplexed at times trying to get your ideas flying and in the right direction, but it is never a cakewalk to develop your products and brand them into the minds of potential customers.

The beginning is always rocky. More than keeping the stone tower steady, the pressing points that takes the focus away is how do they surge operational efficiencies, be cost effective and create new product lines. But most importantly become more innovative from the core. This often leads the newbies to take unconventional approaches and marketing stints that do not always work in the market. Factors such as weak engineering practices, and technology choices, among others also contribute to their failures.

When you dabble between enthusiasm and profitability and falter, you need a mentor, a strategic partner who helps you move from the unconventional methods and focus on speed and culture. Only a good mentor or a strategic partner can ensure fast and successful launch.

Industry agrees that startups grow 3.5x faster and raise 7x more money.

The big question is what are the different strategies that can help curb the failures and build a strategy that helps them to stay afloat in the market. The current situation demands that we embrace the new reality of collaboration in the virtual office environment. Rather than a huddled group of various communications tools, a digital collaboration platform with a purpose will improve the quality and efficacy of project management, software, and product design. Moreover, it will link the silos effortlessly, breaking down walls where necessary.
