I believe there is no defined formula to inspire and motivate others, and you cannot create one for the sake of it,” says Jasmeet Sawhney, CMO at YibLab, Inc. “It is a natural part of your everyday job, and mentoring your team is just a characteristic of good leadership. When it comes to inspiring teams, I simply use my instincts and try to be ‘me.’
You can be extremely smart, and may hire some of the smartest people, but none of that would matter if you do not treat them the right way.

Here’s a video where I, along with other leaders of fast growing companies in NJ, share thoughts on establishing a company culture that has an entrepreneurial mindset, how to handle failure, and the best piece of advice I have received about running a fast-growing company.
Below we present the New Jersey companies that made the Technology Fast 500 list published by Deloitte LLP, a global professional services firm with U.S. headquarters in New York.
The Technology Fast 500 provides a ranking of the fastest growing technology, media, telecommunications, life sciences and clean technology companies – both public and private – in North America. Technology Fast 500 award winners are selected based on percentage fiscal year revenue growth from 2011 to 2014, the company said in a statement.
Axtria, a leader in Data Analytics software and services, has been Ranked 11th on New Jersey’s 2015 50 Fastest Growing Companies by NJBIZ (New Jersey’s premiere business news publication). We are glad to share that Axtria has achieved this feat for the second year in a row.
The NJBIZ 50 Fastest Growing Companies awards program celebrates New Jersey’s most dynamic companies who progressively contribute to the success of the state’s economic growth and stability. To qualify, companies had to meet selection criteria that included a revenue size of at least $500,000 within the past two out of three years and growth in revenue over a three year period, dating from the fiscal year 2012 to 2014.
The NJBIZ recognition follows Axtria being featured for the second year in a row on the Inc.5000 list in August 2015 and also being selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America winner in June 2015.
