Why did you choose to work on this project?
I’ll give you an insight. I have interacted with many startups and their founding teams. Out of over a hundred that I have worked with, I barely see any strength in the team and their ability to deliver. Just 2%-5% check all the right boxes for a startup.
And I saw that Accomac checks all of them. So, it was an easy choice for me because I knew which ones not to pick.
I barely feel like I’m going to miss out on something. But with Accomac, I knew I would be missing out if I did not work on this project. It’s all good here.
How do you balance work and your life commitments?
I have a very simple approach. Instead of chasing money, I chase free time. My first step was to figure out how to work less and still earn the same amount of money. It took 3 years but I figured it out.
Now, I keep chasing free time, so I have de facto the opposite. I have to constantly decide how to fill that time so that the balance is maintained. How I was able to leave the rat race is my secret.
You have been dedicated to taking care of your grandpa, is that right?
I have an uncle and my father who take care of my grandparents. I help when they are not available.
What sets this project apart and makes you get involved?
- The founders do not burn money. Effective and profitable operations are the focus, which is a big green signal for investors.
- Work gets done, sooner or later.
- The product made has an actual problem to solve, affordability.
This alone is missing in 90% of startups today.
Describe a difficulty you’ve had in the past locating investors and having a limited budget and how did you overcome it?
Locating investors is the easy part. The difficulty is in getting them interested. I present smart projects. There my clients and my reputation is the important aspect. It is even more essential to be consistent and patient. And that is why it is difficult. I just keep searching and reaching out.
How do you handle difficult circumstances?
I try to remove the emotions, see the possible things under my control that can be changed, and then consider their impact on others’ emotions to a certain extent before making the final choice.
What’s your hobby or what do you do to relax?
I like to work out, motivate other people, and go on treks once in a while.
