It was established by Dr. Amit Goel, an industry veteran and industry expert 19 years of work experience across different industry verticals. He did his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from the Maharshi Dayanand University.
Dr. Amit has always taken entrepreneurship as a way to add value to ongoing efforts and make lives better, this zeal along with his passion for tech trends in different industries led him to choose a path that is deeply rooted in the innovation ecosystem, dealing with subjects and issues having large scale impact on the society. Just as a potter shapes a vessel, entrepreneurs take a nation into new arenas of success and growth.
Intellectual Property has been an underrated subject in the Indian context for a long but thanks to the latest transformations we are becoming much aware of its significance. The role and power of IP drew Amit’s attention during his graduation where he read a lot about the tremendous power that can be harnessed if certain rights are rightly protected, this is what drew him towards this field and what better way to make efforts to nation-building, than identifying areas that need a certain push to excel.

Dr. Amit’s Take on the Changing Industrial Realm
Over the years, IP has evolved tremendously being a bastion for innovation, it is bridging the gaps between sectors of society. The idea of IP rights and their protection has seen a shift in paradigm in terms of recognition, significance, and importance – the shift from divine providence to valuable human talent has taken complicated detours and pit stops but the fact that these imperfections has led companies to reinvent how IP is perceived in today’s world.
The visionary further apprised, “It has been over a decade since we stepped into the IP world and ever since, every day has shown us new obstacles, challenges, problem areas – as we just do not deal with technological impacts but we deal with those across various industry verticals and sub-sectors – that always keeps us on our toes, to keep reinventing the needs of the hour and changing our offerings to suit the changing market dynamics and clients’ requirements.”
An Edge Over the Peers
Since inception, the key factor that gives Effectual Services a distinct advantage and carves a niche has been their dedication to understanding clients’ requirements and offering perfect matching support. Another factor is the aggressive mindset of the team to resolve problems, openness and willingness to understand changing scenarios, ability to benchmark standard industry practices, and most important of all – treating everyone in the same way that they want to get treated, inspired by the words and life of the Mahatma.
The Journey So Far & Surmounting Challenges
It has been a “roller coaster” ride with its fair share of ups and downs – but every bit of it has been enjoyable nonetheless!
Back in the day when Amit and his team were a start-up, they faced many hurdles. With resources being limited in a start-up environment, they had to make difficult choices agaonid again. Turning down brilliant ideas from bright employees due to resource constraints is never an easy discussion. With size things improved and the resource, the constraint was gone, but the challenges are different now – the form has changed. Keeping people continuously motivated, and delivering to the best of their ability is an ongoing task. So is keeping different people continuously aligned with the organization’s vision.
