“When you are in the digital tech business, the day never ends up or starts a-fresh as the whole day your mobile keeps on buzzing up with new emails (smiles).”
Please introduce yourself and your company
Hello! This is Karan Chopra, the CEO of a digital tech company named G2One Network based in New Delhi, India. The company owes 20+ brands running under seven verticals, ranging from publications to entertainment to services and lots more.
Can you tell us about the projects you are currently working on?
Currently, we are working on multiple projects, including Radio36 (Our internet radio station), BeThink TV (web TVs) and our upcoming data networks.
Where do you see your businesses in the next 5 years?
We are expecting to see huge growth in the next few years time. The reason because currently we are working on projects which reduce our dependency on individual clientele and focusing more on generating revenue from direct advertisements (Cost-Per-Action and Pay-Per-Click model).
Do you plan to compete in the global market place? Or do you have a niche market?
Since our business is of digital in nature, we are already competing in the global market place. Our niche(s), our business line-up is currently catering seven verticals while we are working towards adding one more vertical soon in our line-up.
Do you believe there is some sort of pattern or formula to becoming a successful entrepreneur?
It is not about patterns or something specific but it is all about having a belief in yourself. If you know that what you are doing is correct, then one day you will become a successful entrepreneur.
What sacrifices have you had to make to be a successful entrepreneur?
Sacrifices seem not to be the correct word for that as because what I am doing today is what I always want to do. In short, it is my choice on to be an entrepreneur and I really love my job a lot. J J
What company or business do you admire the most?
The company/business and the person which I admire the most is Virgin Group, the UK-based conglomerate headed by Mr. Richard Branson.
What developments do you see in the digital technology sector?
The way technology makes it stand in almost every sphere of life, the same way it did for the digital technology sector also. Say for example, the advertisements which earlier got headed only by newspapers and magazines (paperback), now got a huge wider space by internet. With the bringing of digital technology in our day-to-day life, the things got easier and much widespread.
What achievements are you most proud of?
The time when we first planned the things back in 2011, our vision just got limited to website making but within the next six months time span, we widespread our vision and get into the media business with the launch of our first publication (I2Mag).
Followed by this, in the next year and two (2012-13), we turned up the whole company from media business to full-fledge digital technology company, catering seven verticals and serving clients worldwide. The way, the company turned up as in the past five years really make us feel very proud.
What does a typical day look like for you?
When you are in the digital tech business, the day never ends up or starts a-fresh as the whole day your mobile keeps on buzzing up with new emails (smiles).
In weekdays, officially, the working hours are from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM but typically you will find me in the office from 08:00 AM to 10:00 PM. In weekends, while I am not available online for majority of time but yes, as soon as I get important business-related email, you will find me online working.
