Dear Netcorians: My Annual Day Speech (Part 3)

Our Future

Dear Netcorians,

We are on the verge of a historic move – becoming a public company. When we accept money from others, our responsibilities will increase. We will have a great obligation to deliver value and returns for big and small investors.

We also want to ensure wealth creation for as many of you as possible.

We may not always match the salary offers that you get from other companies. But if you trust us, if you have stock (and everyone in Netcore can get ESOP), you will make more money over the next few years than what you will make with a salary hike.

Our expectation is you put work ahead of life; I know this is a big ask after the past 2 years of the pandemic. Remember that nothing in life comes easy.

At Netcore, you can live the life of an entrepreneur or CEO in whatever function you do. You get to see what it takes to run and build a business. You can be an entrepreneur within and lead. Working at Netcore is like doing the world’s best startup MBA program! Netcore prepares you for the future, gives you an education no money can buy.

If you want to quit Netcore, don’t quit for money; quit to become an entrepreneur. I will be the first to congratulate you. It is the hardest journey you will undertake in your life.

For 30 years, Bhavana and I have done just that. Life for us has been about our two companies: IndiaWorld first, and then Netcore. 24×7; even while on vacation; always looking one step ahead; a life built around our work; with passion.

We are now ready to climb the next mountains; together with Unbxd; and as a public company.

Netcore’s journey will go on; as an institution that outlasts every one of us. Built to last; an enduring, great company; one that delights customers, innovates, grows.

Many among you are our future leaders; you will be tomorrow’s faces of a public Netcore.

Thank you for being a part of the Netcore team and family.

I ended by asking everyone to join me in singing one of my favourite songs – Ruk jaana nahin tu kahin haar ke (from Imtihaan). I called it the song of an entrepreneur, the anthem of Netcore.
