Let us know about your journey and your initial hurdles.
MINKOOS IS LEVERAGING ITS EXPERIENCE TO HELP BUSINESSES AND PROFESSIONALS TO DESIGN THEIR DOCUMENTS WITH STRATEGIC THINKING.
Whether it is presenting a monthly review, financial report to the company top management, or presenting a start-up business idea to potential investors, making a convincing presentation is a crucial task for every professional is it an entrepreneur, marketing trainee, or CEO. Despite this, well-drafted decks are tough to come by. After experiencing illogically designed important presentations and business documents in different organizations by key professionals, Manish Chaudhary has decided to train individuals and corporates in the art of presentation. Due to ‘bad’ designs, many times have seen people wasting their time in discussion of non-core issues of business skipping major areas of business. Most of the time, it was realized that either the person having an idea doesn’t have the skill of design or they don’t want to spend their time in drafting. This challenge led to his start-up called Minkoos. Before setting up Minkoos, Manish has worked with multiple corporates for more than 15 years. Throughout his career, Analytics and strategic business planning was the core area of his job. Manish helped many customers as a consultant while working with corporates. Finally, he quit his job and formally launched the start-up in Nov 2019. Today, Minkoos is based in Ahmedabad has served more than 400 clients globally. The entire venture is self-funded and recently incubated at Atal Incubation Center located within Gujarat Technological University, Ahmedabad. Even while Covid19 & lockdown duration, Minkoos have sustained with an exciting growth rate.
