We have been lucky to survive for yet another year as a bootstrapped startup , monetising our Featured Jobs segment that helps corporate recruit CA Industrial Trainees to CA CFOs.  The money spent on the placement consultant is a grudge purchase for most 🙂  A popular piece was “Way Forward for Recruitment Agencies: Death, Delivery & Irresistibility” https://goo.gl/kgditJ
We crossed the Billable CTC of INR 12.5 crores ( USD 2 million) on our platform and are now empanelled at 125+ companies in 6 countries 
The DIPP recognised our efforts as also segments of the media. One notable piece was my interview on Taaza TV https://youtu.be/FTQJlxQDhxU
