“As the founder of one of the most successful software product companies out of India, he is thinking of what the future holds,“ said Sharad Sharma, co-founder of software product think-tank iSPIRT. “These are bets he is making which will pay off in the next four-five years.”
“We talk to a lot of entrepreneurs but what makes the cut for Zoho is the acquisition needs to be tucked in to integrate into our product portfolio and we find a cultural fit in the entrepreneur,“ said Vembu. “Entrepreneurs who solely build a product startup with an intention of exit will not fit in Zoho culture.” (Source- ET, Image- Fit Small Business)
