A few days ago, I saw a Facebook live interview of Confirmtkt's founders, Dinesh & Sripad. Early on, I had led a round of investment into Confirmtkt and also sat on their board for a few years along with Pravin Agarwalla.
Back then, we both went through a very tough phase with the founders (and the venture), which the founders recount as something that gave them “sleepless nights” in this interview. While I quit the board last year, my eyes were full while watching the two of them. I’d credit the interviewer, Vishal Krishna for bringing out this story so well.
Vishal’s interviewing style is awesome. He is extremely well read and well-prepared with questions for the people whose venture he is interviewing. This thorough preparation helps him delve into the deeper delicate, intricate details with the interviewee that would otherwise have been missed out. I can vouch for this because he has interviewed me before and dug out some details that even I had long forgotten.
The video focuses on Dinesh and Sripad’s journey of becoming responsible and established leaders who grew Confirmtkt into a category leader and a sustainable enterprise. This is what makes it my video of the week as well as the inspiration for my blog post tomorrow.
