*The pandemic is testing FNF’s mettle and Pandey’s survival instincts *

In the last 3 years, FNF has grown in leaps and bounds. It has over thousand of influencers in India, with their lease and freelancing model. It has also expanded digitally to Bangladesh, US and Europe to make a influencer oriented digital world. The next phase was an aggressive growth strategy including takeovers and nomination to the startup award.
