The Pop Quiz, Monday is a fun little exam that we love to give to savvy business owners. The examination is not a surprise after all since the interviewee already knew about the questions in advance. However, we can always pretend and have fun with the scenario of a young entrepreneur sitting in class nervously biting on their pencil. They are ready to take a pop quiz on a chapter that they were supposed to read the night before. Instead, they played Metroid all night on their SNES (Oops, this was me in high school). The real purpose of the pop quiz is that this is a fun way to introduce business tips from real-world experiences that you can not learn in a classroom. We want to thank our entrepreneur for being a good sport and volunteering their time to answer a few questions to help our community grow from their knowledge.
I want to introduce you to our guest today who will be taking our Pop Quiz Monday.
Can you please tell everyone your name?
What is your job role?
Meet Dhruv – Founder & CEO of Sports Pub
Jayesh Thaker – Founder of Sports Pub

And we will also have some more features which will benefit users.
What do you love most about your job?
Being a Sports lover, I would love to be involved in the Sports industry. Also being a people’s person, I aim to provide the solutions to users who think Fantasy Sports is manipulated and data is being tampered. So to overcome the issues and helping the sports community to gain trust is the best part
What motivates you to get up every day and go to work?
Well, I always keep on searching the resolutions on the existing system. What excites me is exploring about the solutions real time by talking with the users, their thought process, views and all. So every morning I check my phone, go out and meet them and help with one, stop resolutions makes me motivated and keep on trying to help them
How do your co-workers inspire you?
We have a team of 6 people. They all are after creativity and innovations. Bringing new ideas on the platform. I have worked with a couple of teams before the current team is the best so far. As they are hungry about solving issues and also helps me to how to serve our users in a better way
How do you have fun at work (team building, pranks, etc..)?
Having an innovative team, they all are creative having pranks on the floor. With work, fun is also in our To Do List. When we work we work hard but when we party we even party harder.
What are some of the challenges of your job?
There are competitors like Dream 11 and others in the market, and we continuously monitor them. They are also best at what they do. So our main aim is to be better than the best
What are some lessons learned from a past project that you can share with us?
Before Sports Pub, we are Founders of Crypto Exchange name Pexo. Pexo has been acquired, and we have now coming in Fantasy Sports Industry. There are some mistakes we have done regarding promotions, services, marketing and have learned a lot. The best part what we have learned in past project is to keep improvising. Think by keeping yourself in User’s shoes and think from that angle and helps a lot from it
What advice would you give to someone who is starting in your industry?
Never manipulate for earnings
Once users trust is gone..its gone..so built as the user wants and not you want. After all, User is the, Ki g of every Business
Think like building a brand and keep earning from business as a second priority

Blitzscaling: The Lightning-Fast Path to Building Massively Valuable Companies
What entrepreneur or founder doesn’t aspire to build the next Amazon, Facebook, or Airbnb? Yet those who actually manage to do so are exceedingly rare. So what separates the startups that get disrupted and disappear from the ones who grow to become global giants?
The secret is blitzscaling: a set of techniques for scaling up at a dizzying pace that blows competitors out of the water. The objective of Blitzscaling is not to go from zero to one, but from one to one billion –as quickly as possible. — Publisher
