"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not: the world is full of educated derelicts. Persi

  • We collaborated with the best of experts who are Chartered Accountants, Digital and Sales Marketing experts and Senior HR professionals to offer outsourced services on 3 core verticals of business, i.e.,

    Finance, Marketing and HR. Thus creating a wholesome offerings for startups to come to a single source for more clarity, trust and expertise with all 3 functions working hand-in hand for overall business growth. So, You FOCUS on the IDEA, We focus on Figures!

  • The hardships and challenges grow with you everyday. Its like playing a video game, you unlock one challenge and solve it, only to get into another level facing bigger challenge and solving them. Its a sign that you are growing.

    I started referring business to my partners while i was a Corporate Slave. We saw good revenues coming in and understood that every new business needs a CA and along side needs a marketing expert who can actually "SELL" for them. Our skills matched and we plunged into this rough waters and are enjoying the tides and winds.

  • Success is that "Smile", that simple "THANK YOU" from your customer.
  • Lucky to have Chartered Accountants as your business partners. They teach you the difference of how business creates wealth and how wealth creates business. As a services advisory firm, we are customer-funded called "TRUST".
  • We are definitely going Global in 2016 with our focus on Middle East and Asia as there is Tsunami of business opportunity here until 2020 at least.
  • Unfortunately, Start-ups are paying salaries with a 100-300% hike rates which is a disaster in the long run. the idea is to be steady than fast. Focus on your product and your employees, the customers will follow. We don't fear losing our talent pool as everyone hear is mature to see whats happening in the neighborhood. The culture depends on the founders vision and the kind of customers that they are focused to acquire, and hence depend on the team that they want to hire for achieving that goal.

    For ex.: I can still take a word of criticism from someone who is 2 times my age, but am I ready to hear from my boss who is of my age almost to shout back and use his slang machine at? NO. The culture of an organization can be young but needs that string of discipline. We have worked on two of the recently funded startups with an employee growth from 12 to 200 in a span of 7 months. The culture gap is the most dangerous thing to bridge if delayed. We have the expertise to map that for you. Call me :)

  • I want people to flush their mobile phones in the toilet. We are just becoming slaves and are enjoying it, not understanding the deep sh** we are getting into.
