After moving back to the US, Naveen had the idea of creating a family social networking site. In India, UX UI was an unknown concept and he had no idea how he would enter in it. So somewhere between all this hustle, he stumbled upon Divami Designs, one of India’s top UX UI service providers.

Naveen Puttagunta in his school he was always earned top grades.

In the past 12 years, he has run a design company from the ground up, and have had a close look at the entire product lifecycle for software development. 

Company Journey

As soon as Naveen returned to India after living in the US, his entrepreneurial journey began. Creating a social networking site aimed at families to create family trees and connect was the idea. Our product was hampered by a shortage of talent for UX and UI design in India. Despite the fact that it was a challenge, they put together a team that developed their website. Unfortunately, the venture didn’t pick a market, and they were unable to secure funding. Specific lessons and realizations derived from this process of creating products contributed to the formation of Divami Designs in 2008.

About Divami

Key driving force to become an entrepreneur

One of the benefits of entrepreneurship is that it is never monotonous. There is always something new to learn. There is value in the journey, not in the destination, as the famous saying states. For entrepreneurs like us, the journey is irreversible. You can’t turn back. It’s in this way that their passion endures. The bottom line is: No monotony and the relentless pursuit of perfection.

Challenges

Entrepreneur’s stories tend to be similar, as you know. It is almost certain that everyone has experienced tough patches or lean times. Naveen and his team faced the same challenge, but overcame it.

In his experience, this point is crucial when transitioning from a small start-up to a larger one. The first transition for a company is when it goes from a 10 person team to a larger one. It failed in this case, and a lesson is being learned from it. As a result, we suffered and that point has now been passed.

“Throughout a company’s journey as well as an entrepreneur’s journey, transitions occur, and the first time they appear is when we have stabilized and are taking the next step into something bigger, and that’s a transition point, and I’ve had to learn how to recognize those transition points and be cautious.  Often I’m overly pessimistic and cynical, and I suffer from the same problem. However, with a lot of help and a lot of people’s support and advice, I’ve learned to be cautious and watch out for those transitions”.

Successful entrepreneur

“I would say even in challenging times, staying optimistic is the key. Also during this period, market trends are analyzed. In the event that a temporary low phase will pass, one should remain optimistic. If the initial premise of the business idea changes, you may want to reconsider whether to continue. The idea needs to be researched and analysed, if the company’s solution isn’t yet ready for the market. Maintaining a positive outlook will improve the company’s performance”.
