The inspiration behind starting Red Bangle

While talking to TimesNext, Lakshmi told us that she used to run a production house where she observed how distributed and unorganized the market was, as well as how specialized some filmmakers were.

Lakshmi and Sunil realized the power of harnessing this distributed creativity through technology and efficient processes, which inspired them to develop a technology platform that would aggregate creators, boost efficiency in the content production process and could deliver content ROI analytics.

Challenges at the outset

We don’t grow when things are easy. We grow when we face challenges.”

Lakshmi believes that any entrepreneurial journey is full of ups and downs.

The company raised 100k USD in angel funding and the founders invested another 50k USD of their own money into the venture. After such an investment, the company had to be revenue positive from day one for which the founders were very cautious about spendings and kept reinvesting to build their technology solution.

Lakshmi told us that it was very challenging for every team member and them as they had to make a lot of sacrifices, which even included not taking salaries home for months.
