Transjovan Capital’s voice about its unique services
“We are a one-of-its-kind Board advisory firm. No consulting firm in India provides our kind of services with the blend of high quality and reasonable pricing under a single umbrella” mentions Gaurav Asthana, Managing Partner.
Some key differentiators that Transjovan Capital’s clients benefit from are:
Partnership approach to Consulting: most consulting firms look at shorter-term engagements, whereby they provide advice, submit report and conclude their participation – many-a-times, leaving the Promoter/CEO with the report to be best-kept on the bookshelf and with limited actionable. Transjovan’s engagements are longer term, as they prefer to hand-hold clients through the implementation phase as well.
‘Pay-as-you-go’ pricing model: provides better visibility on the engagement progress to clients and is easy-on-their-budgets.
Performance-focused engagements: Transjovan team has advised on USD 1+ Bn worth transactions and has access to over 250 PE/VC investors and financial institutions globally. Post-their intervention, the client companies have observed significant business performance improvement.
Leverage the varied experience: Transjovan team has helped companies in building businesses (e.g., assisted new ventures), in scaling up businesses (e.g., advised established SMEs) and in transforming businesses (e.g., advised on turnarounds and M&A for diversified conglomerates). Their clients can leverage their varied experience across different stages of company’s evolution cycle.
Expert advisory panel: clients can avail Transjovan’s access to some of the best industry veterans as Subject Matter Experts for their respective industries.
Technology-enabled delivery model: Transjovan is a technology-savvy company and utilizes the latest tools available to deliver superior quality services.
