Early in this year, I expressed the desire of working with 2 Fortune 500 Brands within the first half 2017 to Akshay. We both agreed that it was a rather ambitious goal, but we decided to give it a shot none-the-less. In Sales, when there is intent and action, results follow. As we are closing in on completing the first half of the calendar year, we are happy to have already worked on THREE Fortune 500 companies, on significant projects and are looking to expand our footprint.
Here is the story of one of them. In February 2017, the consultants at Mercedes-Benz India, approached us with a unique proposition. Unfortunately, it was the kind of work we had not done earlier. But fortunately, it was the kind of work, no one had done earlier. We jumped on to the opportunity and started working on a project which grew very dear to me and proved to be a big opportunity for Till it clicks.
On June 5, 2017, this project was inaugurated by the top management of Mercedes-Benz India and today, official social media accounts of Mercedes-Benz India featured the project.

Such a proud feeling. Here are a few reasons why we are elated:
- We always knew we were building up a talented unit, but “Talent is nothing without opportunity”. And this project provided us with that wonderful opportunity.
- It kick started our journey of working on noteworthy projects from noteworthy brands. We have bagged some good customers after that. :)
- Personally, I come from a life sciences background and I am a conservationist at heart. So I understand the importance of the initiative Mercedes-Benz India took. It does really make the world a better place.
- It was so unique that we had be the trailblazers. All the R&D with no set paths to follow was painful. But now that we have come out of it, we feel we have grown into better Technology Marketers than we were 3 months ago. Talk about hard work paying off.
Just want to wrap this up by saying a big ‘thank you’ to the team involved in this project from Till it clicks. It is your hard work that makes us all look good.
