Startup City Magazine conducts an exclusive interview with Niladri Choudhuri – Founder and CEO

How and why did you decide to create it? How does it sit within the entrepreneurial ecosystem of India today?

"I felt that there is a big gap in the area of process improvements, whether it is corporate or startup. I wanted to share my knowledge and experience in improving the process of the organizations, whatever stage they are, to enable them to provide better products and services to their clients and achieve the maximum growth possible."

Entrepreneurs get to know about sales and funding but very rarely see the focus on management and delivery. Hence, Portfolio, Program, Project Management, Service Management, Agile, and DevOps are necessary for organizations today not only to grow but to also survive.

What problem does your company solve and how are you different from others in the field?

In the expansive field of Management Consulting, numerous firms offer a wide array of advisory services, spanning from specialized niches to general management areas.

What truly sets us apart is our practitioner's approach. Unlike some who solely provide advisory services, we are committed to seeing projects through until the envisioned benefits are realized and the desired outcomes are achieved.

Our extensive experience across various industry verticals and geographical regions empowers us with the confidence to actively invest in achieving the intended benefits and values for our clients.

Who is the company's ideal customer and how does the company currently approach them? 

Our clientele comprises both IT and non-IT organizations, encompassing those engaged in product development and various services. While we serve a diverse range of businesses, IT organizations hold particular relevance due to their focus on product development.

Startups are also among our valued customers, as we recognize the importance of not just sales and funding but also efficient delivery in their growth journey.

Digital Marketing Strategies for Accelerating Startup Growth in India

How did the company get to where it is today?

Our approach to building connections involves both direct outreach to individuals within our network and leveraging platforms like LinkedIn. Additionally, we have established strategic partnerships with various organizations to enhance our marketing and sales efforts.

Our toolbox includes personal networking, cold calling, and LinkedIn engagement, all complemented by collaborative alliances with key partners.

Can you tell me more about the founding of the company and what the problem is that you were addressing?

In August 2012, I took the leap and left my job to co-found Xellentro with my wife, forming it as an LLP to establish a solid legal foundation.

Our journey began with the dual challenges of hiring the right talent and driving sales. While we have made strides in sales, the ongoing challenge remains the acquisition of skilled team members.

Is hiring a challenge for a startup?

Hiring has been a challenge for start-ups. It is always good to hire a person who is already familiar with the mission, values, and work culture of the other organization.

It always benefits a business if the prospective candidate is positively influenced by the information he or she is equipped with. But instead of these, most of the candidates expect more than the capability of any startup in terms of salary, infrastructure, and perks.

"Startups need people with passion, capability, and a killer attitude."

What are the company's core values?

The company is based on the core values of Honesty, Integrity and to provide quality services. It helps Xellentro's customers to achieve excellence in their delivery.

How do you describe your culture?

"We are an open organization, and people are empowered to do their work within the expectations set. We work in a team, and there is no hierarchy."

Where do you want to company to be in 3 years?

We see ourselves to be seen as the best in the area of service globally. 

How did you create the vision?

My decision to enter this field stems from my extensive experience and knowledge. Through my observations, I've identified significant room for improvement in both corporate and startup sectors, areas that I believe have not received the recognition they truly deserve.

Do you think that the company will ever need outside investors?

Securing funding is a pivotal step for us at this juncture. We find ourselves well-prepared for exponential growth, and having investors on board will be instrumental in achieving our goals.
