We always knew that we were doing great work in software testing as a start-up and we believed in our work. I happened to receive call from Unicom and also an e-mail about the nomination of TestInsane for “Testing start-up of the year 2015” category. I did not respond to the e-mail, but again I received a call from Unicom to know about my decision. I spoke to one of the person from Unicom and I said, “We don’t want to participate in this because we already know that we are insanely awesome in our work and wouldn’t be nice if we don’t win the award”. But, again I gave it a thought and said “YES” for the nomination. We had to talk about our various work at TestInsane so that the jury members could decide on one winner. I was pretty confident that we shall win this award for sure because we had done great work for our customers and also software testing community in terms of open-source contribution by developing apps for testers to help them test better.

And on the day 24-July-2015, at 1700 hours India Testing Awards 2015 event started. It started with awards for various people in different categories of awards and when the time was to announce “TESTING STARTUP OF THE YEAR 2015”, I could feel goosebumps when TestInsane was announced as winner. I was very happy to receive this award and also we were very quick in getting here.

Thank you Unicom & Next Gen Testing for this award. This is special for us. We continue to do great work and amaze the world. Keep showing us the love :-)

Last, but not least I thank all our team members for making us capable of getting this award. Special thanks to Karthik Kini, Sandeep Tuppad and Ajay S Menon. We are awesome as a cool team.

Below are some pictures taken by me :-)

  1. Cordial Wishes to you guys,

    Anyone who leads an initiative: lean, new product development, strategic planning, New Technology, battles at times with the question of centrality. At some point, someone asks whether the effort which is applied towards the organization is devoting to the initiative is worth it. Is the initiative central to and supportive of the organization. One most salient answer which can be self explanatory that is the “SUCCESS” which is everyone which to get identified by some one.

    “INSANE” are finally got a recognition As “TESTING STARTUP OF THE YEAR 2015”. On behalf of UNICOM family member I wish you all the very best.

    Best Wishes
