The M2S Series: Say Cheers To Hemant Dua, DYT’s Co-founder
It’s the people who make a company. There is an inherent truth in the saying. So, to introduce you to the pivotal people who make Do Your Thng, we present the M2S series.
Getting To Know The People of DYT: Hemant Dua
That’s what we tell all creators.
Experiment with the type of content you make. Experiment with the format you use. Experiment with the social media platform you try. That’s how you get to know what you’re good at.
There is no better living proof of how experimenting leads to success than Hemant. Over the years, he’s donned many hats, including CEO of Delhi Daredevils (now Delhi Capital), Consultant at BRC Group, and, of course, co-founder of DYT.
One trait unites them all: his passion to grow businesses by turning ideas into reality!
Is that the dawn of understanding beginning to flow across your face? If so, let’s move right along to get you better acquainted with him…
His Official Designation
Hemant is the co-founder and Chief Growth Officer of Do Your Thng.
In so many words, he’s the man opening new doors for us, managing governance, and ensuring stakeholders and their investments are taken care of.
His Unofficial & Much More Important Position
In not so many words, Hemant is the Boss Man and the Wise Man. A true sales maverick, he is individually responsible for raising DYT’s collective EQ and IQ.
His Monday + Friday Face
For most people, how the work week begins and ends is poles apart.
Normies, like you and I, start by praying at the altar of our chosen puppet master — coffee or tea. By the time Friday rolls around, the feels begin to hit differently.
That’s not the case for Hemant. Monday and Friday are carbon copies: “Dhande ki baat karo and aage badho!”
What’s His Bread + Butter?
If you ask our founder what’s the one thng he can’t work without, he’ll say Google Calendar. He’ll make do, but the hours will pass like a kidney stone. For our NBD Head, the answer is food. For our Tech Lead, it’s coding.
For Hemant, it’s attention to detail. While we may miss a spelling error even with spell check, Grammarly and Quill Bot on, he won’t.
This thoroughness, as well as the rare ability to focus on small and important details while completing a task, distinguishes him as a maven.
What The Team Thinks About Him
Arguably, the DYT team is still young, which means we have a surplus of energy. More often than not that energy needs to be channeled, which is where Hemant swoops in with a cape on.
A hard taskmaster and problem-solver, he knows just how to nurture young talent, so we remain on track!
What The Team ‘Really’ Thinks About Him
In the spirit of keeping it 100, Hemant lives rent-free in our heads because he literally (and we literally mean literally, not figuratively) intimidates everyone.
With just one email, call, or Slack from him, our chutzpah vanishes in a puff of smoke, and we morph into yellow-bellied, scaredy-cats singing, “This’ll be the day that I die. This will be the day that I die.”
What He Brings To Do Your Thng?
Clients and decades of experience are the two very obvious thngs Hemant brings to DYT. But those are not what makes him an irreplaceable part of the team.
It’s his wisdom.
He may lack the long and lush beards King Solomon and Gandalf sported, but he is just as wise, often becoming the sounding board our founder needs to debate and fine-tune strategies.
And, oh, he also lends a much-needed sense of calm to the commotion that is an early-stage startup!
What DYT Brings To Him?
In Hemant’s words, “DYT gives me the energy of the young founder and workforce, which keeps me on my toes. It keeps me alive and thinking as we build a business. It allows me to keep learning and growing as an individual every day.”
