About Us

Quite a few people have posed this question as to what exactly does Indygo do? So this is my view of who we are -

Indygo is a company which builds products, more often than not, from scratch, and more often than not, for other startups who are pressed for time, quality and money. Some of these products that we build would also be our own. We are at the drawing boards of one product currently. However, we do not want to be associated with a single product, since we want to build and deliver a lot more. I know some of you might say that this will lead to blurred vision. I say, what we need to see is the immediate road ahead and guidelines to drive, not a set plan. I feel that a plan on that scale (i.e. the future of the company) puts too much focus on the future and less on the present. As Mahant Shetti says - "Having vision in such a case is impossible; 'the visionary' can set directions, but we can not depend on him/her to plan for the unknown future, especially with the rate of change in our industry."

Indygo is a journey, not a goal. And we are in it for the long haul. Not for one product lifecyle. Indygo is as much about people as the products we build. We are here for developers who love to do what they do best. Develop. Grow products that are world class. And by investing in them, we invest in the products that get built, and by that we invest in Indygo.

Now if you ask me what our current expertise is? I would say, building applications for the web.
