The software engineer and owner of multiple small businesses sat down to discuss his life, his career, and his professional philosophy.
It is with great enthusiasm that software engineer and entrepreneur Saketh Devineni announces that he is the subject of a new, in-depth interview. The interview, which was conducted by freelance journalist Stefan Junge on behalf of an online periodical aimed at business people and entrepreneurs, was published on April 13, 2022.
Early in the piece, Saketh is asked to recommend a habit that he has cultivated over the years which might also benefit budding entrepreneurs. “Everyone should know what their skills are and what they are capable of doing. I think it pays great dividends to take a moment and write down what you can do that is of value,” he responds, before providing an illustration of what he means. “For example, a driver for Uber Eats—whom I also consider an entrepreneur—is capable of sitting in traffic patiently, as well as finding a destination, and bringing the customer their food within a specific timeframe. Like everyone else, they have to know and appreciate their skills. Then, once a person knows their skills, they can apply them in the best way possible once an opportunity presents itself.”
Further along in the interview, Saketh Devineni addresses a question about his most effective entrepreneurial strategy, citing the importance of researching an industry before diving into it. “I’ve made a substantial investment in restaurants, and before I did so, I learned that the service industry has many different requirements. To explain what I mean, it might be a good idea to use a compare/contrast. Running a restaurant is not the same as running a grocery store, for example, even though both enterprises just essentially sell food,” he explains. “The service industry is completely different from retail, and it was necessary that I understood that before making an investment. So, I would say that the best strategy is to educate yourself on each investment before pulling the trigger on it. Make sure that you understand the business through and through to accommodate all of its necessities.”Anyone interested in reading the full text of the interview will find it located here.
