Start-up founders must learn the value of persistence
Bragpacker founder Manan Shah says be persistent, rely on your network of contacts, and define your business value early
NEW DELHI :
Manan Shah and his wife were in Brazil in 2014 to watch the Fifa World Cup when they decided to add a few more days to their itinerary to travel across South America. “I was on a backpacking trip through a high-altitude, mountainous region of Bolivia when I became acutely aware of how over-packed and ill-equipped I was compared to Europeans," Shah says. It was then that the 41-year-old struck upon the idea of launching a travel gear website.
