NC- The strategic consulting machine
Running and managing a business could be a daunting task! While, some have the experience and the technical expertise to run it efficiently, others have excellent interpersonal skills and deep domain expertise to manage the business. However, no entrepreneur possesses all skills that are required to run the business and invariably depends upon outsourcing or outside assistance to perform better.

Both the Founders of the company had unique journeys. What is common is the fact that both were highly successful in their corporate careers followed by failed entrepreneurial stints and subsequent successful ones. The learning from the failures is what created NC in the form and shape it is today.

He has tremendous energy and enthusiasm with an uncanny knack for identifying new opportunities. He strives to create an organization that delivers rather than just talk.
