How 1M/1M: Premium Member helped them to get that grant? If I am right they applied for the challenge and they got because of the potential.

You are asking silly questions.

Sanil, I suggest you ask this question of the Freshdesk team, whether they got value out of their affiliation with 1M/1M or not. You are absolutely right that they got the grant because of their potential, and the credit goes entirely to the team. We do not, for a moment, want to take any of the glory away from them.

1M/1M works in the background with entrepreneurs to help them become successful. You can try to understand the program and its value proposition if you are seriously interested.
