Tell us about yourself?
My name is Yashu Kapila and I am the CEO of BugRaptors. After completing my Master’s in Computer Application, I started my career journey pursuing different roles like Quality Consultant to QA Lead, Senior Quality Manager, and Vice president.
I was always a tech enthusiast and the exposure that I had from various career roles inspired me to look at the bigger picture. Diving into the various concepts of Quality Assurance and software testing allowed me to witness the true potential it can offer to the digital transformation concept.
Being a first-generation entrepreneur and CEO of a company, I am responsible for managing the overall operations of the company. It includes delegating and directing agendas, driving profitability in business, managing organizational structure, creating business development and resilience strategies, and most importantly inside and outside communications.
If you could go back in time a year or two, what piece of advice would you give yourself?
One advice I wish that I would have given myself back in time would be to stress less. Being a work enthusiast, I barely gave myself a “me time”. I believe, sparing some time for your own self not only helps you self-assess yourself but drives more productivity in your life. It brings you balance and more importantly, complements the most important aspect of personal health.
I think everyone should work on it while they still have it. I also practice mediation and yoga on everyday basis for maintaining my mental health. Also, one piece of advice to every working man/woman is to never miss weekly outings with your friends and family, as it really helps you to stay motivated.

What is the inspiration behind your business?
Technology always fascinated me. Since my childhood I loved indulging myself in technical things and once I did my master, the interest got even more stronger. Moreover, the enthusiasm to learn more pushed me exploring all the dynamics of QA industry and polishing my skills.
