One way of defining entrepreneurship is fulfilling the needs of people. On one side there is a need and on the other there is creativity to meet the needs. An entrepreneur builds the bridge between the two sides. The perfect explanation to this definition would be Stagephod, founded by Nikhilesh Tayal. It connects the film makers with the people who wish to get a video which best explains their ideas and thoughts.
Founded by Nikhilesh Tayal on 3rd November 2014, Stagephod is an online market place to find and hire a video maker to create amazing videos like corporate videos, product videos, web series, a promo video, marketing videos, social videos or a client testimonial video.
“We at Stagephod believe in connecting emotions to brands.” says Nikhilesh. They come out with video branding concepts and get them executed through their “hand-picked” film makers. Right from bringing out the concept to the final product, the complete video branding of startups is taken care. It helps to expand the horizons of various film makers.

Meet the founder:
|Founder- Nikhilesh Tayal.
Nikhilesh had started Cvbhejo which was incubated by The Morpheus. He scaled his venture on great heights and was selected as the top 10 upcoming entrepreneurs shortlisted by Bloomberg TV. Unfortunately it did not work as expected. But he decided not to give up and started exploring on his passion for film making.
On making a short film, Nikhilesh saw the hidden entrepreneur behind film makers. Initially he started off with a blog as stagephod.org which featured budding film makers. He approached various film makers who happily agreed to share their stories on his blog.
Constructing the platform:
While interacting with various film makers, he realised that all of them had a common problem of getting work opportunities by doing something they love.
At the same time many of his friends who run different start ups asked him for a reference of any video maker. They were looking for someone who could bring out their ideas digitally in front of people.
This was the Eureka! moment where he decided to establish a marketplace to find and hire video makers.
