In fact, he is now looking to create impact more than ever before!

We ask Abheek about his business approach when the economic pendulum has been swinging towards tougher times the world-over. Known for his candor and vision, Abheek quips, “I am proud to reveal that in 2020, we have actually achieved all our goals. The focus and teamwork has really paid off.

In my experience, the toughest of times are often just the trigger that propels us towards the best times."
