Ankit believes that products are the center point of business growth, and that with the growing demand for products, companies have started to switch to product-led growth strategies due to its high yield and current market threshold. Ankit also describes the fundamentals of a product, he believes that a product should be simple in nature and effective enough to solve the key customer problem infused with innovation. The uniqueness of the product distinguishes itself from the competition. Generally known as ‘USP’ in the business world, it influences the growth of the business and also is the key to enticing customers to repeat the cycle of consumption.
Building a Tech-Product
In the course of this detailed conversation, Ankit enlightens us with the key aspects of building a tech product, he believes there are two stages in building a tech product, firstly building a solution and then moving to the actual development of the product.

He also explains the evolution of marketing strategies which has defined the current way of buying and selling of the product.
Tech Strategy: A big yes or no?
Every business wants to have an online portal in times of uncertainty, but having an online presence isn’t the straight path to victory. So a lot of thought goes into the development of a tech strategy. On this note, Ankit shares some quite valuable pointers that can help businesses understand its working and reach the right conclusion. He said that tech strategy has become a need rather than a choice due to the pandemic. But what a business needs to understand is that it is not about how they have to do it, but when they have to do it and how much they should do it. Covid-19 had accelerated the tech strategy implementation process quite remarkably.
Due to the presence of existing giants in this line of business, the new businesses are left with fewer options to either compete or collaborate, leaving most of them to take the route of collaboration.
