As a start up, there’ve been many trial and errors before we’ve managed {or at least we think we have} to set up a trusted network of service providers. Two years in, with more errors than trials, we’re giving you pages from our Black Book of services; forget the saying, and learn from our mistakes. There probably won’t be enough time to make them all on your own. From food that never disappoints, cleaners that’ll take care of every type of closet, to designers that make it all happen, here’s our directory.

Anindya Roy | For All Things Tech 

In a nutshell, he’ll be your go-to man for everything tech related. If you want the longer version, he’ll architect and implement complex data centers and cloud based infrastructure for online focussed businesses, along with vulnerability assessment and performance optimisation consultancy. As for commitment, his services are available both for regular engagement as a fractional CIO { Chief Information Officer}, and on a project basis.

Charges: As for charges, they vary basis the complexity of the task, but he will try and cap it at INR 3000/hour. {Approx}

Broomberg | For Cleaning Services

Although a thorough cleaning of a space might be a one time affair {if you already found the office of your dreams}, do not underestimate the power of a hectic scrubbing down. We’ve been greeted by many a nasty surprise, and hence enlisted Broomberg to come in for an overhauling. After having decided on a time and date, we were greeted by 5 Broomberg branded clothed men, who went on to dust, sweep and scrub every corner of our HQs, including spotless windows, outdoor areas, questionable bathroom fittings, and furniture. We recommend their services if you’re moving into a new space or house, and would like to know what it actually looks like.

Charges: On request, based on size and manpower required.

FBPay | For Online Transactions and Hosting Contests

Notice how we’re event and contest junkies? The crew over at FBPay is god sent, and saves us years of time in an otherwise tedious process of collecting payments, registering credit cards, and attempting to track entries. FBPay will sync contests and payment options directly with your FB account, so instead of having to create new content, they’ll just pull it off the already existing profile. Best part yet, they’ll assist {read:pretty much take care of} in monitoring payments, with various real time email notifications, 24/7 customer support for failed payments, and direct transfer to your bank accounts. Better still, the online marketing assistance.

Charges: They work on a commission/ online transaction

Yashasvini Kumar | For All Legal Matters 

Bigger, more fancy firms tend to not give entrepreneurs or start ups the time of day, so by practice we’ve learnt, it’s better to place your legal woes in the hands of trusted, more accepting solo lawyers. Ms Kumar here has 5 and a half years of work experience in the areas of mergers, acquisitions, private equity and general corporate law. She’ll be best advising and executing transactions in these areas, providing insight on market practices, transaction structuring, corporate compliance requirements, review contracts, and negotiate any related transaction documents that might come up. She’ll be happy to send you in the right direction if you have a criminal/property dispute, which are outside her area of experience.

Charges: Depend on your scope of work. If her rates are too high for you, she’ll be happy to point you in the direction of smaller firms/independent lawyers who charge less. PS: Rumor has it, she’ll waive her fee for start-ups and entrepreneurs she really likes. You didn’t hear it here.
