Lakshmi Narasimham, Engineering Director

“Kart as an adviser has given significant inputs to the company work culture which fixed the gaps and improved the work culture a lot. He pulled a couple of engineers from his network on short notice and helped Loktra to fill the urgent opening in just 3 days. He has helped Loktra in key hiring. He is a great value addition as an adviser.”

Vipin Khandelwal, Founder, Unovest

“Kartick has contributed to multiple areas: staying on top of the evolving fin-tech landscape, brainstorming products and features to build, planning our roadmap, pricing, making introductions to relevant people, helping with a vendor relationship…”

Rohan Gupta, Cofounder, stealth startup

“I was introduced to Kartick by a common friend from Sequoia. I would often ping Kartick about questions related to the tech stack and product capabilities. He has not only answered those questions for me but also taught me how to think and approach those questions effectively. He has a deep technical understanding and an eye for business nuances.”

Packages Offered

Scale One App

Is your business scaling but your tech unable to keep up? Are your customers unhappy? Are you going slow on sales to avoid destabilising your system? If so, I'll put your tech one step ahead of customer demand, so that the ball will be in the marketing / sales team's court to acquire customers as fast as they can. To do this, if your organisation isn’t set up to build scalable products, I’ll advise you on transforming the company.

The full benefit will be achieved over 3 quarters, though you'll start to see results in the first month.

Price: $90K / year.

If you have one specific question like "Should we use serverless?", schedule a 1.5-hour call to discuss it in detail and get clarity. You can use this to build comfort and trust with me before upgrading to a bigger package.

Price: $400. Pay only if you're satisfied.
