Leo Shastri is the director at Webmuch Softwares Private Limited. He and his team have worked intensely to make Webmuch stand at where it is today.

We talked with him to get an insight about his success and here is what he had to tell.

With a few interns running around the office, the work environment is always fast paced, energetic and calm simultaneously.


Hello, Leo! Congratulations! Your website has been really doing well. We are really happy to see thousands of users are benefitting from your website.

Thank you Twenty19 for giving me this opportunity. I am glad that many are benefitting from this.

How important do you think Internship is. Please guide our students in this regard

Leo: I guess the students should experience real time exposures through internships. Interning is an extremely important process for the start of a career of any student. These internships are the jobs that help students find the best experience they could get because, as an intern, one is provided with ample amount of work. It’s a brilliant learning curve for them. Not only that, there’s always big chances of getting full-time jobs where you intern if you prove your value.

Doing an internship is also very beneficial for students who are confused about what they actually want to do. Those students get the right and professional mentoring those internships and of course the experience is really treasurable.

work life can be the most fun part of your life if you let it become fun and choose to do what you love.

Give us an insight into your recruitment process.

Leo : We have a talented HR team working hard online on finding new interns whenever we need them. As far as interns are concerned, apart from Twenty19, we are directly connected to some colleges, institutes and universities. For other high ranked jobs, our HR team is always connected on websites like Naukri, Monster, Indeed, Shine, etc.

How have interns helped your company grow?

Leo : Without the brilliant young minds that we have at Webmuch, it would have been extremely hard for us to grow. The problems these days come with the high end salary packages. The growing problem in the economy makes the employees sought after higher salary packages which are not affordable for a start-up. That’s where the interns come in. Plus, with a few interns running around the office, the work environment is always fast paced, energetic and calm simultaneously.

If you were to go back in time, what would you do?

The start to Webmuch was the start to my career in actuality. If I were to go back in time, I’d like to start with the ideas that are in my head today. If I were to employ those ideas at that point of time, I’m sure would give my company a lot of success, something we’ve attained later only.

What are the 3 key things that you learnt in your career that college students today can follow?

Leo : 1. Being social and having the right contacts for the future or for your career.

2. I learnt that knowing exactly what you want to do is important before you start with further studies. Students often make this mistake of not having a vision before starting off college.

3.  I’ve learnt that one should always have an open mindset to everything. Times are changing and people are opening up a bit more and that is a welcome sign.

 My advice for students would be to be very active and very focused in life.

Your advice to college students?

Leo : My advice for students would be to be very active and very focused in life. People usually say that you’re done with the fun times in your life in school and college. I’d advice you the opposite, work life can be the most fun part of your life if you let it become fun and choose to do what you love.

These would be the few things I’d suggest to all the students:
1. Being organised with everything helps a lot.
2. Having greater knowledge is always an advantage.
3. Stressing out and taking tension doesn’t help in the long run.
4. Being money-minded is not bad if you want to be a successful businessperson.
5. Taking help and support from your contacts does not make you a small person. One should be open to any support you get from your contacts.
6. A confident mind is the best mind in any work scenario.
7. Think ten times before making big decisions, your career is your life.


Webmuch and the team have accomplished their goals. As a start-up too, they have reached great heights and it was all possible because of the enthusiasm and hard work they put into their work.
