We often say at Shunya that we are not a sugar water company. We are young, vulnerable, but we have got our heads in the right place. We have markets to crack, demos to make, but we fundamentally believe that innovation comes from reflecting, and nurturing the collective success and the joy of building things together. And that means thinking really long, and not jumping at every 30 cents we can get for a dollar tomorrow. Innovation by its very nature disrupts the fundamental rhythm of Business - and we choose to do that deliberately.
Inside of the company we take raising the bar & investing in ourselves extremely seriously. We have had the hard conversations, pushed ourselves like a true sports pro-team (Who wants a consolation prize? We are gunning for the Olympics!), while we share the occasional chai-pe-charcha and let some steam off. We might miss a few engineering demos here and there, but we still keep each other insanely accountable. We are real when things fail, we remember why we seated this journey in the first place and get right back on track.

No, you did not get the zeros wrong! We are frugal at innovating and we believe that through our purpose, we pull missionaries, who don’t care about the financial rewards, as much as engineering pride & excellence.
Isn't it too little? Yes! But that’s the point. You should be here to build something beautiful which you actually enjoy, rather than doing it solely for the financial gratification.
