White Panda Update #1
A beautiful sunny day masks the fact that it’s finally time the searing heat of Gujarat makes way for the winter. Working in the summers in Gandhinagar is no easy task, let me tell you!

Connections 2016 at IIT Gandhinagar
Connections 2016 was the first edition of IIT Gandhinagar’s industrial Conclave, and we had a chance to stand shoulder to shoulder with some of the Industry’s biggest names – General Managers, Presidents and Vice Presidents from Maruti Suzuki, Reliance Industries, Torrent Pharmaceuticals, Tata Consultancy Services, Maxim integrated and Ricoh India to name a few.
The day began with Dr Sudhir K Jain addressing the dignitaries. After being out of action for the past few months with a broken knee cap, it was great to see him finally back on feet, alive and kicking. Amazing Lunch catered by the Fern Hotel was the perfect opportunity to discuss White Panda with the attendees, and boy was the response positive!
The second day gave us an opportunity to showcase White Panda alongside 4Dea Technologies and Geocarte, fellow incubated startups at IIT Gandhinagar. To think that the man behind Reliance Textiles entire operations, would walk up to you and congratulate you on your presentation, is a dream come true for every entrepreneur.
Our First Disgruntled Writer
It was inevitable; one day or the other, we would encounter one such writer on our roster who wasn’t pleased with the services on offer at White Panda. Repeated texts and threats soon followed, after which the matter was soon resolved. It was an unsavoury blip in our otherwise perfect record, being committed as we are to our mission of cleaning the world of online content.
There are many writers out there with whom we share the pain – getting into contracts with individuals who have no intention of fulfilling their end of the bargain. However, the world of modern content is harsh, there is absolutely no room for poorly written content, no excuse for being tardy, which is something the individual failed to realise.
We’ve moved on, though, and so has that individual. We share no feeling of contempt of ill-will, only a feeling of regret, that we were too late to save him.
Blog Design Revamp
As you know, White Panda maintains an active Content Blog, exploring topics on Content Writing, Inbound Marketing and the latest updates in the content world. However, every good blogger knows that it’s not just the content that determines the success of your blog, but also the design of the blog- how attractive it is to the beholder.
We subsequently proceeded to revamp the design of the blog, including elements like infinite scrolling, a new and improved Guest Posting Form to accommodate Guest Posts and the overall look and feel of the blog.
And yeah! This is our First update. If you wish to learn more about White Panda, our journey as entrepreneurs, or stay updated with the latest trends and news in the world of content marketing and Content Writing.
