Mastering crisis resolution
As big challenges beget bigger accomplishments, Jan’s business decisions have been fraught with challenges.

Although people think that stories are shaped by people, in Jan’s life, it has been the other way around. From converting leads to sales by targeting the right consumer base, raising funds to stay afloat to inspiring talents to work with his team and motivating them to see the bigger picture; each one is a meaningful tale focusing on making Jan’s venture mean more than the sum of all the components, explaining his nascent team why the organization exists and how it meets customers’ needs.

In his business transformation efforts, Jan also knows how to transform himself to define the future growth of the enterprise. A fast-paced, high-growth environment gives him the much-needed kick to go the extra mile. He tries to influence and create momentum for those whose professional goals are aligned to the growth mindset of the organization and is thus always looking for talents beyond educational pedigree – who are willing to adapt and collaborate as intrapreneurs having an ingrained desire to leave a lasting impact on the organization’s future.
Mentors harvest talents
Alongside, passion and perseverance Jan ascribes his steep learning curve to many other people who contributed to it.
