Tell us about your background, and how you came to found your company?
I am an early adopter of technology and got a personal computer since I was born. At that time Windows was not yet launched and Internet was yet to be invented. I started to learn programming when I was a kid and was able to develop a website to promote my esports team at the dot-com age. After studying Economics and Finance in university, I started my career in a private equity firm and had the opportunity to look into a lot of companies all over the world. I realized that many businesses can have better utilization of technology in order to grow and optimize the operations. After spending few years in private equity, I decided to start my own company with a mission to help businesses adopt technology.
What is most important to you and your organization – mission, vision, or core values? Why?
Mission, vision and core values are different things and all of them are important to Gianthouse. Mission statement describes what the company does in order to achieve its objective and drives the company forward. Vision, on the other hand, sets the ultimate goal of the company. The core values are commonly shared among the members of the organization and are the glue that holds the team together.
