Elaborating about the strategies to deal with the COVID disruptions, Shivashish Tarkas, Founder & CEO, The Intermentalis, asserted, “I see a good growth happening in this industry. There is absolutely no doubt that it has become an easy cup of tea for us to go and explore how the digital and online marketing are. What we have done is we have written down our goals into fragments. We are expecting another wave also coming across, so it’s better to think of a three-months planning, rather than going for a long-term vision. At the end of the day, of course the longer vision plays an important role but the way towards that is breaking it down into smaller visions; accordingly take it forward and see how successfully you are able to achieve your aim. Definitely, I see a growth for people emerging from online industries.”
Sumit Garg, Co-founder and MD, Luxury Ride, spoke about his future plannings considering the COVID. He stated, “We planned our launches, our short-term goals, our long-term goals.
