THE IDEA: What is the problem being solved by your startup / business?:
With all employees working from home, it’s become more challenging for HR, Corporate Communication and Marketing managers of companies to meet with vendors, see samples and find the right product/solution to send corporate gifts and merchandise to their employees, customers or dealers. And in these tough times, sending goodies is very vital to keeping the moral high.
That’s why, we created The Corporate Gift Show, where we demonstrate a new, innovative corporate gift idea, every single day.
THE FOUNDER’S STORY: When and how did you come up with the idea for the business?:
Srikanth has been running a corporate gifting company since 16 years. And there were times in the past when he would send a product video to a client when it was not possible to meet.
