  • 23. What our Mentees Say About Us “Sanjay has proved to be an excellent mentor, honing our business mindset and skills. Under his guidance, we have been able to successfully transform Robots Alive and shed our unorganized startup mindset. We have evolved into a more structured and well organized establishment, all geared up to become a successful enterprise. Sanjay has always been very vocal, outright and honest about everything due to which we were quick to realize our drawbacks and act upon it immediately. We are confident to go places with him on board as Chief Mentor” – Abheek Bose – Chief Executive Officer – Robots Alive “Your guidance has been like a support system. It was under your mentorship that I have been able to make the first few moves as an entrepreneur more confidently. One great thing that I must mention about MindSphere is that it just doesn’t support a company but it actually enhances its personality and of the people within. MindSphere doesn’t do your work but believes in teaching you how do it and hence teaching you all the nuances of being a professional entrepreneur. I am very positive that Antara Design Studios as an organization would achieve its vision with your guidance. Thank you” – Antara Pal Chowdhury – Chief Executive – Antara Design Studios MindSphere Consulting - Confidential
  • 24. What our Mentees Say About Us “Our Association with MindSphere started about 3 months back. Though having worked in multiple Large Indian and non Indian MNCs for about 15 years, at a time, when it came to laying processes and procedures for an organization and getting the right inputs from Industry colleagues mostly senior, was becoming increasingly difficult, I got introduced to Sanjay. We were a startup of about 15 months + and did reasonable well to sustain those first 15 months, however I was not getting a overall picture of what was going right and what wasn’t. Sanjay helped me pay attention towards the Finance processes and functions, health of the organization, cash flows, Legal & Statutory compliance, short term and long term strategies, Sales & Marketing, branding etc., which helped take a step out of the box and take that critical look at all these functions. And more importantly how a business person should strategies to build wealth and increase the shareholder value while ensuring that the employees grow along with the organization and make them part of the plan to succeed” - Bhargav Balla - Founder & CEO - Ninth Dimension MindSphere Consulting - Confidential
