Anagha Dattatray Joshi, CoFounder at EBA Solutions Private Limited
Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?
Anagha Dattatray Joshi: The decision to move back from USA to my motherland India triggered this discussion with the partner of the company I was working with. He suggested I start an offshore centre for the company in India to tap into the vast tech skills and support all kinds of tech product development. I immediately took this suggestion, came back to India, and started EBA Solutions Pvt. Ltd with my partner Mr. Ram Kumar.

Great Companies: What were the struggles and challenges you faced and how did you overcome them?
Anagha Dattatray Joshi: Being a first-time entrepreneur I had to face many challenges from getting right people for the job to managing all aspects of a business. In this process, I discovered myself as a leader who by being human, was able to connect to people and get the right people to follow me in this endeavour. I am proud to say that 4 of my first 5 techies are still part of my EBA Family. Being a computer science postgraduate, I was already on top of my tech game but being a commerce graduate helped me understand finance easily. Just by being honest and putting myself in my employees shoes every time I take a decision made me a better person and a leader. I have faced challenges every step of my way for past 11 years and I have emerged out of them by applying my wits and might to find solution to every problem. I found out that I am a problem-solver at heart who likes to find solutions rather than harp on any weakness or curve ball that life throws.
Great Companies: How do you plan to grow in the future? What does 5 years down the line EBA Solutions Private Limited?
Anagha Dattatray Joshi: My plan for EBA is to become a product company. I want to create products that solve problems people or organizations face in their day-to-day work. I want to create products that automate mundane tasks and free people to do the tasks they like. I am not a big fan of the valuation game. I like to take it slow and steady. EBA will be developing the products with its own strength and experience. We are here for the long game. So, 5 years down the line you will see EBA as a product company with the best human culture where people will want to work and build their future.
Great Companies: If you had one piece of advice to someone just starting out, what would it be?
