In the tech industry, startups face its own unique obstacles as well as opportunities. Share with us some of the hurdles that you confronted in the initial stage of road to innovation and how you dealt with it?
We believe that failure is a part of life. We analyse and improve upon our failures. Get up and move on stronger. We all learn, as we get older, that rules are made to be broken. Be bold enough to live life on your terms, and never, ever apologize for it. Go against the grain, refuse to conform, take the road less traveled instead of the well-beaten path. Laugh in the face of adversity, and leap before you look. Dance as though everybody is watching. March to the beat of your own drummer. And stubbornly refuse to fit in.
All organizations are in flux: changing their focus, expanding or contracting their activities and rethinking their products and services. We welcome change and take it up as a new challenge; the only constant is our focus on providing high quality products and services. At TurtleDove, we aim to stay motivated and productive to maintain business continuity while we work in rapidly changing environments.
