Business Connect: Did you see any transformations happening for startups, over the years in the field?
Shivendu: Various Government schemes such as Startup India have helped ideas transform into products and have helped in many ways financially as well as technically, helping young entrepreneurs setting up their first company. As startup companies in nascent stage need assistance and constant monitoring through audits and compliances checks. They have also eased out some compliances for recognized startups and various tax benefits have also led the startups to flourish and have given the platform in our country for FDIs.
Business Connect: Did everything come easy or you have your story of struggle.
Shivendu: I hail from Siwan, a small town in Bihar and my success story is similar to that of young entrepreneurs who come from smaller places basically lacking in technology, infrastructure or support. Although the internet has definitely been a revelation and helped me update my knowledge about what was happening around, I had to move out from Siwan and settle in Varanasi for better prospects of my company but the core idea of setting it up was conceived at my hometown. I had my share of hardships but I am happy the way things turned out to be.
Business Connect: What kind of clients do you serve, any special mentions?
Shivendu: We serve Government, Private Sector, Corporate Sector and HNIs. Government is constantly in need of various project reports like smart city development plans, Private Sector such as educational institutions need help in developing curriculum and skill development programs, Corporate Sector which is in need of feasibility studies and market research & HNIs in their philanthropy projects and asset management.
Business Connect: How do you ensure unbreakable faith of clients in your company?
Shivendu: We enjoy continued patronage of our clients through consistent meticulous service provisioning. We always stick to our core value of great customer experience and hence a great brand loyalty.
Business Connect: How do you keep pace with the changing market trends?
Shivendu: Although there no definite way to it and most of the times we follow our instincts but along with it we also try to evaluate what is relevant to our requirement, follow the best practices of the market leaders, make optimum usage of the social media platform and constantly keep evolving by up-skilling ourselves.
Business Connect: Do you believe R&D is essential for the growth of the company?
Shivendu: I would say that Research and Development is the backbone of an organization. In fact, the market is led by those organizations who have a strong R&D team. We also emphasize on our R&D and the emphasis would be stepped up with time.
Business Connect: Do you still come to work with the same zeal, like you did when you started?
Shivendu: Well, this company is our brainchild. It is somewhat like raising a newborn. You nurture it and you do it with a sense of responsibility and purpose. There is a natural enthusiasm for whatever you choose to do. There is a great sense of passion for running this company.
Business Connect: In terms of your market what do you feel the future holds for entrepreneurs?
Shivendu: That solely depends on how equipped you are to dynamically evolve, accepting change with open arms and pursuing your passion with great acumen. The role of a consultant/consultancy requires to have a deep understanding of people, processes, and tools within the context of organizations. The ability to concisely explain something complicated to a non-technical audience differentiates an average organization from an Extra Ordinary one. We always strive to excel.

Shivendu: Our employees are the foundation of our company and it is of utmost importance to keep them happy and motivated.
