In case you missed it, you can listen to the recording here:
Sramana Mitra: How much is the deal size now?
Senraj Soundar: Close to double. We have multiple products, but they are priced at a lower level.
Sramana Mitra: All through this evolution, have you continued to bootstrap or have you brought in any financing?
Senraj Soundar: Till now, we’re bootstrapping because we were able to, in the last couple of years, manage the company’s cash flow. We are continuously taking every dollar and throwing it to engineering. >>>
During this week’s roundtable, we had as our guest Sash Sunkara, Founder and CEO at RackWare. Sash is a rare example of a female startup CEO who has built a sizable venture funded technology company in hardcore tech. She shared her journey and the discussion was enlightening.
Up first, Bhaskar Mani from Bangalore, India, pitched Flocknshop.com, an online collaborative shopping application. There are some strategic decisions to make with the company on how to bootstrap to traction, go-to-market (B-to-B or B-to-C), etc.
Sramana Mitra: A corollary question, whom do you see in deals?
Sash Sunkara: From a DR perspective, we often see Zerto. We used to see others too. Zerto has quite a strong foothold in the lower end service providers, more in the SMB space. We are starting to see some of them in enterprises. We’ve beaten them in quite a few of the enterprise deals. We do address enterprise complexity very well. In the cloud management space, we see competitors like Red Hat. In a pure migration deal, we sometimes we see Arasimi but not as much as we used to. There are internal tools as well. >>>
