“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” – Margaret Mead
I was the first employee at Com Olho. And I believe that the best analogy for what it’s like to be the first employee is that it's extremely similar to the experience and feelings of being a cofounder. I was a part of every conversation and every decision. The open culture and transparency between senior management and other employees is one of the best aspects of Com Olho.
I joined Com Olho with no expertise in marketing, but with a strong belief in the company’s mission - “To assist Enterprises and the Government to create Digital Safe India.” However, as I reflect on my journey, the opportunities that have been provided to me have allowed me to grow both personally and professionally.
I'm getting goosebumps today thinking about how far we've come. In the last one year, I have gained significant insight into where my true strengths lie by wearing many hats. Nothing makes me happier than taking on new tasks and overcoming unexpected problems, or, to put it another way, stepping outside of my comfort zone. As the company grew and pivoted, I adapted and moved from one set of responsibilities to another. Com Olho has provided me with a diverse range of experience that has helped me advance in my career.
It takes commitment to build a successful business. Working hard entails more than just putting in long hours. It's all about commitment to one's belief and aiming for greatness. And the beauty of working here at Com Olho is that everyone works hard towards the same goal to get it done.
Working here has been an exciting journey and an amazing learning experience. I'm grateful to our Co-founder, Abhinav Bangia for believing in me from the start, giving me responsibility and the freedom to do whatever I wanted. It has equipped me with invaluable hands-on experience, allowing me to grow my skills, and knowledge.
I believe I still have a lot to learn and grow in, and I'm looking forward to doing so with Com Olho.
