Q&A with Anjana Sinha
Founder @ Beyond Border
What are your plans for the future?
In the coming months, we will try to have a 150 % increase in SP and a 400% increase in creating the connections.
We are targeting to collaborate with Ry association and providing Beyond border as a service to them. Moreover, we will onboard one more cofounder.
In the next 6 month, we have a plan to apply for Tekes funding.
Wix is a cloud-based web development and web hosting platform which makes it easier to create a website and host the data helping us in evaluating the whole concept. The effort saved here can be used for initial business development. With the increase in traffic on our website, we understand that we need to move to a platform that we have full control on and most importantly can develop it to anything what we need. The various choices are Google cloud, Amazon Web Services, and Microsoft Azure. We will use these cloud-based solutions as IAAS (Infrastructure as a service) or PAAS (Platform as a service) while building the website using PHP in order to keep the maximum flexibility.
Aside from achieving commercial success, what do you see as your startup’s mission?
Our vision is to build a community in which people who share the common skill interest and cherish human bonding can be connected with the support of technology.
Our missions are:
To learners: Providing a platform where learners can actively access and search for private tutors in diverse skill areas close to their location effortlessly.
