BusinessInterviews.com: What inspired you to launch your business?
Neha Modgil: I would call my marriage and motherhood as an inspiration. The business launch happened because I got married, had a kid and I knew that nobody would be interested in giving me a job anymore. Rather than putting my career to a standstill, I began working as a freelancer on some major projects. As I grew professionally, I began hiring other freelancers which in turn grew into a firm and today Techved is one of the leading UX/UI agency serving global clients. I believe that business is like a baby. In fact, with my own baby and a business to run, I felt like taking care of twins at a time. Managing the business has been quite tough but I’m happy that it has paid off quite well.

Neha Modgil: Our business works on references and to have retained number of clients in these many years itself is a huge success. For us, retention is success. It is when we find clients saying, ‘Techved’s suggestions are our highest priority’ and the way they introduce us to their team as the doctors who will cure the website with usability. Success, to me has never been monetary but the love of clients and I feel honored by the trust they have in us.
