We hear from Rohini Gupta , Co-founder , FinregE , about life inside and outside of the office .


Can you tell us about your current position ?
My name is Rohini Gupta and I am the Co-founder of FinregE , a regulatory compliance software solution which successfully applies Machine Learning and NLP to legal and regulatory texts to automate the understanding and management of compliance against regulatory requirements . now supporting the UK Government ' s Future of Finance vision and Better Regulation framework , as well as making strides in Machine Learning and regulation compliance and access .
What style of management philosophy do you employ in your current position ?
Being the Co-founder of a start-up and a small team , I wear many hats . Along with being a Co-founder , I am also a salesperson , account manager , marketing executive , PR , IT support and software release tested at FinregE ! I get involved in everything that goes on at FinregE – from the minute a lead comes in for a demo , to a support query from a current customer not being able to log into the platform , to writing blogs on trending regulations , project managing implementation and identifying all the key insurance regulation applicable to a client in Argentina . I love every aspect of my position because I get to work at the heart of it all .
What would you describe as your most memorable achievement ?
It would be winning the Smart Grant from the UK Government . The Smart competition is one of the most competitive funding streams , with a success rate of only 5 %– 10 % of applicants per round and a passing score of over 80 %. And as it ’ s an open call with no specific theme , it ’ s even more competitive as you have to make a very strong application – we could easily do that though as we already had sure-shot ideas and a vision .
At FinregE , we work by the following philosophies :
1 . A business is all about relationships and if you help people get what they want , you can get what you want in your business . Throughout my career , I have learned that if I understand how my actions can help colleagues or business stakeholders , my dreams are easier to achieve .
2 . Always maintain honesty and integrity , as this cultivates your reputation . After all , your reputation is the only thing that will follow you throughout your career and help your business thrive . I always say that we should live in such a way that if someone spoke badly about you , no one would believe it .
3 . Don ’ t get sidetracked by other people ’ s or other businesses ’ successes . As a start-up , it ' s very easy to get sidetracked by what other people are doing or the achievements of other businesses . This can make you lose focus on your core business model , waste your resources and halt progress .
How do you unwind outside of the office ?
We ’ re now more than halfway through our project and are really proud to say that we are
