From marketing to being a CEO…

Vu Technologies has shops in shopping centers all across India. We have exhibition centers across India in 20 citys and an online sales platform.

5 percent of our income to Ar-Ge
Saraf who gives much importance to the companys infrastructure Ar-Ge says, “We have a new product development center that is based on the MIT Media Lab’s product development and human approach factor. Our Ar-Ge department is made up of 20 people. Right now we are working on more satisfying things like Netflix which we launched in the last few months. We spare 5 percent of our income to Ar-Ge. We have factorys in China, Korea and Taiwan. Our panel production in japan is still continuing. I am thinking about new features for our TV technology and customer interface in 2016 rather than new products. I am at the same time the Head of Vu Design Department. We are co operating with different design houses across the world.

Never give up
Saraf, makes this evaluation of leadership success and entrepreneurship in a buisness life and accumilation of success like this: “I see myself as a leader that is the combination of mishief and the mind. I am a singular spirit who doesnt obey the rules. This helps me put up a creative fight with global giants like LG, Samsung or Sony. The most important thing about success is creating happy receivers and increasing the number of happy receivers… No matter how far you go, you can always go forward. Never stop and never give up.”
