Tell us a little about your organization and your organization’s journey so far;
About my organization, I would like to apprise that “S10 SafeCare” is an offshoot of S10 Health, started off as a network of ambulatory care clinics with a funky sports medicine & high-performance center and many S10 SafeCare minute clinics. We took "Health and Wellness" to the day-to-day lives of individual health seekers, schools, and corporates. It was awesome.
Our model of care made people feel amazing — but was hard to access at home. We needed an easier way to bring these magical elixirs to people's daily rituals...so we hit the App button!
We set out on a mission to create the most relevant, feature-rich App on the planet. Our doctors and technology experts after 3 years of experimenting with people and meticulous designing unraveled this wonderful set of Super Apps!
Here we are, buckled up for a long haul to make a meaningful impact
Tell us a little bit about yourself (background) and your journey as an entrepreneur, please;
I did my schooling from sacred heart matriculation higher secondary school and further pursued medicine from Chettinad hospital and research institute in Chennai. I was a passionate individual from the beginning and always aspired to be one of the youngest achievers by delivering high performance in all walks of life. To add to my skills and knowledge, I also completed a course in the most prestigious Harvard business school on entrepreneurship. And have also done AI In healthcare at Stanford University. I have won the young entrepreneur award for the year 2021 by the Indian achiever’s forum.
I have always been a hustler and a hard worker. Along the journey as a doctor, I realized the importance of converting my knowledge into healthcare for improving lives and took up entrepreneurship. I wanted to use software and technology to help people get the best and easiest solution for their healthcare needs.
Why did you choose entrepreneurship over a job?
I chose entrepreneurship because I always wanted to improve lives. I have always been intrigued by entrepreneurship and read success stories of all successful entrepreneurs. You see –For any entrepreneur, the route from an idea to an established business is a long and winding one. I was always into building things. As an entrepreneur, there are just certain skills that are integral to your success. No one is one hundred percent prepared to be an entrepreneur and an expert at it, so you’ll inevitably learn quite a few things during your tenure as an entrepreneur. So I’m on my journey of establishing and building my brand with my mission to provide healthcare to all needy patients.
What gets you out of bed in the morning i.e. what’s your source of motivation?
It is very much true that everyone is of different calibers and that includes what motivates us and our perspectives of rewards. Some people are more intrinsically motivated by a task while other person sees the same activity extrinsically. Being challenged every day helps me to work at a continuously optimal level of work towards meaningful goals and stay positive.
During this COVID-19 crisis, what are the measures you have undertaken to continue your business without disruption?
As the business is born during COVID, each measure is taken to ensure that the model aligns with the challenges of the pandemic.
Our business model consists of a lean team that is not at all resource-heavy and has minimal overheads.
Every aspect of the business is online and tech-enabled to ensure automation as much as possible.
What challenges/obstacles did you face in your journey so far?
I feel every day is a new challenge, a new adventure a new opportunity for. So, if you dedicate your mind towards your goal, you will achieve it so as I am doing to achieve my goals. This is what drives me to work hard and achieve my dream for the betterment of healthcare for the needy.
What is one strategy that you believe has helped you grow as a person/startup?
The one strategy that I believe has helped me grow is the ability and desire to learn powerful skills that can have a positive impact on many areas of my professional life. Learning can take place in a traditional sense through reading or studying, or in a more interpersonal sense through listening. Either way, it's a crucial aspect of my personal development.
In your opinion what are the keys to success?
I will say it straight that there are many factors but if you really must have the key elements then to me these are the ones:
Build high self-esteem, belief in yourself, have confidence, like and feel good about yourself, take pride in what you do.
Focus with a positive attitude Always expect the best possible outcome for what you do.
Set powerful goals Give your brain a place to aim.
Persevere Never quit.
Maintain a healthy mind, body, and spirit
What advice would you give to someone starting out as an aspiring entrepreneur?
I would like to advise the aspiring entrepreneur, First of all, choose your occupation wisely. Before you decide to pursue any career ask yourself this question: "Can I see myself doing this all day, every day, for many years?" When you choose an occupation, make sure it's a good match for your personality, interests, aptitudes, and work-related values. Most importantly don’t let anyone tell you what’s right for you. Root for yourself. If you aren't your own biggest fan, who will be? Take note of and pride in all your successes and positive attributes. Don't wait for someone else to tell you “Job well done!" Reflecting on your achievements will spur you on to accomplish even greater ones. Some people see only the negative side of things and always find something about which to complain. Don't be that person. You will bring yourself and everyone else down. A negative attitude saps your energy. Don't ignore problems, but instead of just complaining, look for ways to fix them.
