In this exclusive interview, He shared his experiences in IT and several more things. Let’s check his success story and thoughts.
1. Tell Us about yourself how you start your career in IT Sector?
I began my work when I was still pursuing my university degree. I realized that I am good at web development and began looking for clients who needed technological solutions for their business.
I am the founder and CEO of an IBM and Google certified, mobile app development company called Fluper.
I am also the business head of Fluper, which gives me immense responsibility for preparing this organization and its members to scale great heights every year.
I graduated in BTech and then did a PGDM in sales and marketing from Symbiosis Pune. When I went to pursue an executive MBA in sales at Cambridge University, I realized I had no interest in it at all. My disinterest gave me the idea to establish my startup company in Digital Marketing.

Fluper is a NASSCOM, GOOGLE and IBM certified web and mobile app development company. We provide peer-to-peer mobile apps across different verticals. We have a team of over 500 experienced professionals who have undertaken over 320+ projects.

The main aim of my company is to enhance efficiency, integrity, functionality of applications, and interface to deliver solid products.
Every startup needs strong leadership who guides the company and its members towards success and glory. I try to motivate my team members and lend a hand to them so that we can achieve our dreams as a team.

16. Android or iOS, Native or Hybrid — which platform is best to use to build your app? What are your recommendations?
I prefer the native model because of its brilliant user experience, as well as higher scalability. However small companies and startups might find it difficult to build a native application because of budget constraints. In such cases, they can opt for a hybrid app, which can run on multiple platforms with ease.
