We are glad to roll out the first edition of the GyanMatrix monthly newsletter. We got a creative and passionate editorial team who is going to take it forward.I take this opportunity here to share with you journey of GyanMatrix so far.
GyanMatrix made its humble beginning in a small apartment in Chennai in beginning of 2015. At that time all we had was product ideas and zeal to execute those ideas. This article is an attempt to share with you the defining moments of 2015 and where we are heading towards..
2015 a snapshot
In my view, 2015 had mostly been a successful year for GMX. We went through surprises (pleasant and unpleasant), signed with FT (Financial Times), built a great team for FT in a short span, and a young & talented team for Loany.
If someone had asked me to think about the challenges GyanMatrix would be facing in 2015, my list would have been getting talents, building team, investment. But never in my wildest of imagination would I have predicted that office space hunting would have been our challenge of the year. The experience we got here would be of great help in our future plans.
It's the sheer dedication and support of “Team Loany” and “Team FT”, that made the year 2015 what it is. They went through these transitions and yet took that extra step to ensure the productivity is met, deliverables are delivered. Thank you guys!
Inception of GyanMatrix Technologies PVT. LTD.
One of the biggest decision for me in 2015 is to transition GyanMatrix as PVT limited from sole proprietorship firm and make a board of five.
Rajan has been supporting me throughout as a valuable advisor. When he introduced his G3 (Gang of 3) :), I knew we were going to be a formidable team. With the addition of Rajan and G3, our board has become a fantastic five. Creativity, quick decision making, risk taking, stepping in each other's shoe, proactivity are our signatures and strong mantras. (May be our weak spot also sometimes).
That's my best attempt to summarise 2015. Let's move forward to present. 2016 had started with a positive note for us with Solvvy getting in as our client, Loany hitting the market and meeting up with all the goals set, a fruitful business trip from our FT clients. We delivered successfully to FT and Solvvy.
Now as we stand in the middle of 2016, it's a big bang moment for GyanMatrix. I am glad to announce that we have signed up with NewsUK, London to provide them software services. We are in the process of setting up a dedicated workspace for NewsUK and also on a hiring spree. It is indeed a proud moment for GMX to have brand like NewsUK, Financial Times, in our banner.
On the other side, it's a tremendous responsibility on our shoulders and very critical for us to stay humble and focussed towards fulfilling our responsibilities.
