Noida, August 7, 2017: One of India’s most well-established Product Engineering, R&D & Innovation companies, KritiKal Solutions, marked a successful journey of 15 years by celebrating their work anniversary last Friday i.e. 4th August at Mosaic Hotel Noida. Since the outset in 2002 within the premises of the renowned Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD) as the first student faculty-led startup, KritiKal has grown its presence from the domestic to the overseas markets and established itself as a strong contender in the areas of Image processing, Computer Vision, and Embedded Systems.
On the commemoration day, the function commenced sharp at 2:00 pm with a warm welcome note by the founders of KritiKal Solutions including Mr. Dipinder Singh Sekhon, Mr. Nishant Sharma, and Mr. Ashwani Gautam. Recounting the journey so far, “they spoke about the challenges and achievements over the years. 2010 to 2014 had proved to be quite a steep climb with many obstacles along the way, however, persistence & constant innovation ensured an upswing in the following years, helping us reach the 100 million-mark by 2017. Throughout our journey, we learned what it takes to develop and deliver a product that exceeds a client’s expectations and achieved great milestones with lots of hard work and the sheer dedication & determination of the team. The journey has been amazing– full of enthusiasm, dedication, and relentless efforts– that helped us push our limits and begin on the ‘Big Leap’ plan to join the ₹ Billion League by 2020. When we look back to those amazing 15 years, we believe that we are on the right track to innovate the world with our cutting-edge technology & expertise.”
Also, they added in the speech that “We had built traction and were fast approaching the end of our runway, the two evident options – crash or fly – And we weren’t ready to crash! That’s when the first funding round happened, we quadrupled our sales & marketing arsenal and concentrated on our focus on increasing our productivity and efficiency; in-effect extending our runway, for building the best foundation for sustainable flight.
Celebrations began with exciting games and cultural programs that were hosted by KalaKriti- The Organizing Team. In line with KritiKal’s focus on encouraging extracurricular activities, we also witnessed ‘KritiKal’s Got Talent’, where employees got a chance to showcase their creativity and innate flair. Undoubtedly, the energy in each participant of the KritiKal family was at full throttle and the aura of the ballroom was jovial & invigorating. Along with the Celebration, the Company appreciated & recognized the dedication & efforts of employees. There were different categories of awards to honour our champions, ranging from the ‘Exemplary Efforts’ Award to our highest accolade – the ‘Sarvottam Kriti’ Award for outstanding contribution to the company’s success.
