About the challenges he faced and how he dealt with them, Jiten Thakkar shares, "The original challenges included partnering with local sources, making a fully-featured platform ready to launch in a short span of time along with a workable pricing strategy. Our innovative model enables businesses to enrol in monthly subscriptions plans without any upfront deposit.
