Lamp was founded by Nilesh (ex-Yahoo) in 2008. In his own word
I had an itch to start my own company since long. I was not sure about what it takes to start your own company, but I was very much sure that I can do far better than what I was doing.
I always felt that, things can be done different ways, things can be changed, things can be manageable. Some time you get chance to make things proper and some time you need to accept what others believe is true.
Certainly, the later part was not so convincing for me. So, starting our own company was one solution for me to control my professional life and fortunately I have friends and partners with me who believed & supported the same idea.
There are two types of people in this world. One, who spent their entire life; doing job, making money, getting married, having children and live happily ever after.
Now nothing is wrong in that. that’s what normal people do, seek for stable life. Others (like me), who don’t want to die with regret of not doing something, which their heart tell them to do. When I was in college, I read somewhere
Dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be. Because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you want to do
Bit philosophical, but its driving factor for me to make decisions. Seriously, if we have only one life, do we need to do what other people, community think right or what our heart says is right? Simply I follow my dreams.
