Based in Bangalore, with an office in Kochi, Eventsource has worked hard to build a value driven entity with laser focus on market communication that is the need for today and tomorrow.

On the business direction, Eventsource’s successful venture in to the business of conceptualizing and partnering with media channels in creating value and knowledge based serious reality shows. They have just completed Hausley Ki Udaan Season 2 with ABP news which is currently being telecast successfully.
How did you generate this idea to set up this organization? The CEO Magazine asked Mr. Joshi. “There are two ways to start a business, one, you need to make money so let’s start a business, the other which we are a part of is that you are passionate about something, now let’s find a way to generate income from that. We got into this business purely because we were passionate about creating effective experiences. However, we studied the market at that time and realized that there was a need in the market for a professional agency whose expertise and intelligence was purely in execution. Given this need, we launched Eventsource, so we were arguably South India’s first professional execution agency at that point in time. Later we realized that the market dynamics were changing and for the future, we needed to move beyond just operational mode. The future demanded a more intellectual approach to experiential marketing and events which were not being addressed to then; hence we have now re-positioned ourselves as strategic consultants and have restructured the organization accordingly. Though we started work from 2006, Eventsource, was formally founded in the year 2008,”he asserted.
Commenting on company’s culture, Shautick said: “We believe that aptitude can be gained, attitude cannot. Therefore, we recruit for attitude first and aptitude second. As an organization we are a hierarchy neutral organization, which means a trainee can become the CEO of the company if he or she is capable. We inform this to every new recruit and at all levels. This actually inspires a lot of people today. Every aspect of our policies is tuned to support the performers. The core proposition of our organization is ethics and this reflects across all our policies internal and external. It’s a highly energetic environment where we encourage different thoughts. That is why we recruit candidates from various aspects of life.”
The company’s vision has always guided its planning initiatives and growth pattern so far. In this phase of its growth plan, it is focusing on organic growth both in terms of revenue and value of work. Currently headquartered in Bengaluru with an office in Kochi, Eventsource plans to expand to Delhi and Mumbai. Fortunately, at this stage of its growth, it is sufficiently funded and denies any external funding, but looks towards adding a few people to its advisory board.
