Business Blogging & F5ive Technologies
Business Blogging helps companies exploit the potential of social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter and blogs. It’s about how to do business via social media. F5ive Technologies offers online solutions.
“I started these two to explore the potential of social media and web development. While corporate blogging aims to explore the potential of social media, F5ive Technologies focuses on web development for Indian companies and other business start-ups,” says Kiruba Shankar about the success story of his two businesses.
Kiruba Shankar was confident when he started his own business, thanks to his experience during the 13-year period at Sulekha.com. He focused on writing from the very first days of blogging and has also written several books. The seven years of his blogging experience also helped Kiruba Shankar start Business Blogging. A large number of his customers spread the message to make it a success.
In addition to these two initiatives, Kiruba Shankar is also one of the founders of Proto.in. He is also a lecturer at the Asian College of Journalism and also writes columns for leading magazines on business and entrepreneurship.
Excellent speaker, motivator too

In particular, Kiruba Shankar has been a professor of digital marketing for 18 years and has also attended courses for various B-schools.
He also conducts several workshops for future entrepreneurs, who have great ambitions. During these workshops, the digital expert asks participants to completely get out of mobile and laptops. He urges them to refrain from reading newspapers and watching television these days. All their thoughts should focus on what they strive to be and the ways to reach the goal. They must also prepare and make presentations about these during the workshop.
Kiruba Shankar has three questions for the young entrepreneurs:
* What should we do to achieve our goal and our dreams?
* What resources should we look for to achieve our goals?
* What challenges do we have to face to reach our goal?
Not only achieving one’s own dreams of becoming an entrepreneur, but encouraging others to pursue their goals is also a positive trait. Kiruba Shankar helps to open the door to ambitions and opportunities for others.
