1. What inspired you to launch Minkoos?
Whether it is presenting a monthly review, financial report to the company’s top management, or presenting a start-up business idea to potential investors, making a convincing presentation is a crucial task for every professional, be it an entrepreneur, marketing trainee, or a CEO. Despite this, well-drafted decks are tough to come by.
After experiencing illogically designed important presentations and business documents in different organizations by key professionals, Manish Chaudhary has decided to train individuals and corporates in the art of presentation of documents. Due to ‘bad’ designs, many times it is observed that people waste their time in discussion of non-core issues of business, skipping priority points. Most of the time, it was realized that either the person having the idea doesn’t have the skill of design or they don’t want to spend their time in drafting.
This challenge led to launch start-up called Minkoos.

Even while Covid19 & lockdown duration, Minkoos have sustained with an exciting growth rate. In the beginning, it was a completely new kind of challenge so we were not ready but as our business is digital technology-driven it was not difficult for us to align ourselves with this new normal. In Fact, Covid created a new opportunity area for us as some industries or segments realized the importance of having conceptually designed business documents in case of crisis. A good design & strategic drafting helped our clients to execute their business well while working remotely with their employees and customers.
