Data Analytics & Insights
Business Process Automation
FMCG for non-alcoholic beverages
Corporates have greatly strengthened our marketing programs. They have also helped us build trust for our other and future clients, as the corporate’s name gave Krenovator more credibility. We learned a lot from the corporates in terms of project management which we could directly implement in our own startup.
Once we gained the trust of our corporate partners/clients, we had new strong and reliable revenue streams. What’s more, we gained strong partners that we can collaborate with for our future projects.
