Tell us about yourself?

I’m Rajeev Sharma, Co-Founder and CEO of Markovate, a digital product development company. With over a decade of experience in digital product development, I have led digital transformations and product development of large enterprises like AT&T and IBM.

My main areas of competence include mobile app development, UX design, end-to-end digital product development, and product growth. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and certifications from the Scrum Alliance. Aside from my work, I am interested in Metaverse and closely follow the latest developments.

If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?

Believe in yourself and your vision at all times because if we put in the necessary effort, everything that seems impossible to attain will eventually be accomplished.

What problem does your business solve?

We develop cutting-edge digital products to give tech companies the digital heft. Many complex problems are yet to be solved, issues are yet to be addressed, and the digital economy is accelerating significantly. We often find solutions to complex issues that have a tangible impact and can benefit our clients in practical ways.

Our products are not merely better—they are the best. We back each digital product we develop with a well-considered tech stack, scalable architecture, and user-friendly UI designs.

We build value using three significant areas of expertise.

  • Design
  • Product
  • Technology

What is the inspiration behind your business?

We are passionate about design, user experience, and mobile; thus, we built our foundation on these three pillars: technology, product, and design. This is the primary source of inspiration for our award-winning digital products.

Our inspiration, which is to design mobile-first experiences for businesses globally, serves as our goal. We support companies trying to expand digitally because we think mobile should come first.

What is your magic sauce?

We laser focus on user behaviour, journey, needs, and goals with clients. It makes a difference when you can draw on personal experience to bolster your arguments, such as “We used this product ourselves, and it worked because…” or “We created SaaS products to improve user’s churn rate…”

Our UI/UX team makes sophisticated user flows appear simple and intuitive.

What is the plan for the next 5 years? What do you want to achieve?

We are preparing for a quick expansion. As customer trust grows and our business partner network grows, we foresee numerous things in the future. We will begin analyzing Blockchain and DeFi mobile solutions. There is a high demand for mobile SDKs for various protocols. Consumers can engage in token-gated mobile commerce experiences based on their digital assets and the secure link between a Wallet, Seed Vault, and dApps.

What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced so far?

Our challenge is to change and adapt quickly. Change is difficult, particularly in the near future. We must be adaptable to remain competitive and provide value to our customers.
