The heart of Replicon: What it took to grow a software company

What it took to grow a software company

Replicon is now a $20+ million company. On one hand you could say it reached that milestone by virtue of 7,800 companies joining our family of customers in the past 16 years. On another, you could say it stemmed from vision and hard work (and yes, learning from mistakes—some of them big ones). That’s probably the case at many companies that started small and took a little time to grow. But rarely do you get to hear a company’s founders describe with detail and candor the significant hurdles, decisions and accomplishments they experienced along the way.

Recently, our founders and Co-CEO’s, Raj and Lakshmi (to me, it’s a nice marker of Replicon culture that everyone refers to them using their first names) were interviewed by financial blogger Sramana Mitra, who asked them detailed questions about how they conceived Replicon, devised its business model, funded growth, built an infrastructure, and much more. It’s revealing to see how they persisted in their vision, survived bumps, and shaped the company. If you want a feel for the heart of Replicon, the blog post is worth a few minutes of your time: Bootstrapping to 20 Million: Replicon Co-Founders Raj and Lakshmi Narayanaswamy
