NextBigWhat Huddle has been created to ensure that working remote does not get boring and you continue to get insights + real-world lessons from founders and product leaders on building and scaling product-led businesses.

On Wednesday (April 15th), we have Aloke Bajpai, CEO & Co-Founder & Rajnish Kumar, CTO & Co-Founder @ ixigo joining us for an AMA on Crisis Management & How To Plan For The Next 12 Months.

This is an extremely difficult time for entrepreneurs and startups around the world and many of them will have to deal with new & difficult realities. As founders of one of India’s most successful travel platforms, that has survived many ups and downs, Aloke & Rajnish are very well placed to guide founders and teams on how to deal with the current crisis.

Over the past few years both Aloke and Rajnish have shared some unique perspectives on what guides their philosophy behind ixigo. From ‘Building For Bharat‘ to Being A Cockroach Startup‘, they have made a notable contribution to the Indian startup landscape in helping entrepreneurs navigate their way through very desi problems.

This time though, we’re dealing with a global pandemic that threatens to derail the world for many months to come. How is ixigo looking to tackle this? And what is their advice to other founders and entrepreneurs? Can startups even plan for something like this? Rajnish & Aloke will be answering all of this and more. Don’t miss out & make sure to register.

Our leadership team agreed on taking a 60%+ pay-cut graded by pay, and for the rest of our company, the mutually agreed pay cut level would be a function of the actual compensation level varying from 20% to 50% pay cuts. We will reinstate the salaries as soon as the situation improves and we will also convert the accumulated salary deductions over the hardship period into equivalent ESOPs so that everyone benefits from future upside when the going gets better again
