Kashyap Deorah talks about his tech startups almost like they were old cars—there was the one he had in college, the one he had in Bombay, the one he sold to a shop. But he knows each one was useful; they all got him to where he needed to be.
And where that is now is HyperTrack, a tech startup that offers a GPS tracking system as a SaaS, allowing companies to track their drivers and share selected information with customers in real time.
On this edition of Founder’s Journey, Kashyap goes into more detail on this long journey and the many lessons he learned along the way, including how to treat investors, how to build the best team, and the right time and way to begin marketing.
