were asked to stay back and then told that interview process is over.
Interview Tips
Tell what they are focussed on. Positions of responsibility, field work you have done like marketing, inviting colleges, business development, It gives you an edge if you have worked with a startup or working on your own startup. If you follow startup news, it also helps you. Do a thorough homework about profile and company and competitor company etc.
