Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Anil Goyal : After passing Chartered Accountancy final exam with national rank in 1995, through campus placement, Anil could get an opportunity to work with IDBI in credit division, where his role was to evaluate project funding cases and keeping track of their business progress through various check-points. Working with IDBI and specially under Mr Debasish Mallick, it gave a rock-solid platform for Anil’s career growth. IDBI platform gave him an opportunity to interact with Entrepreneurs, who showed their persistence, team-work ability, risk-taking ability, leadership skills, creativity, self confidence etc, while show-casing their projects during evaluation stage by IDBI.

Post IDBI, Anil had worked at a leadership positions with SKIL Group, IL&FS, Mangalore SEZ, Mexus Education and Meril Life Sciences. Having worked at leadership positions and taking ownership for top-line and bottom-line, it gradually engraved a sense of entrepreneurship in Anil’s working style. While managing Mexus Education as Managing Director & CEO for more than 10 years and leading cross-functional team of more than 1500 people, Anil gained rich qualities of an Entrepreneur while dealing with various organisational challenges such as maintaining performance levels, managing employee productivity, communication improvements, teamwork, systems developments, service management, cash-flow management, regulatory challenges, managing internal and external scepticism, managing workplace culture/ diversity, stimulating innovation, change management, downsizing, competition management etc

Having born in Agarwal family and with deep understanding gained during leadership positions at various organisations, Anil decided to become an entrepreneur and started his own company CapSavvy Consultants Private Limited during November 2019 with full support of his wife Aruna Goyal, who is a post graduate and an artist by profession and his son Ayush Goyal, who is post graduate from IIT, Varanasi.

Commenting on initial phase of CapSavvy, Anil mentioned that “the most important factor for growth of any organisation during initial years is to win trust of its initial customers, who become company’s well-wishers and help for its growth. We were fortunate and blessed that our initial customers were referred to us from our close-circle friends group, who believed in us over last 25 years”.

CapSavvy’s approach is modern and unique while serving the clients. They work with their client through “Business Partner Approach”. Under this unique approach, CapSavvy team gets into shoes of their client and understand their business needs through their eye, so as to ensure personalised and effective advice.

Great Companies: What are the struggles and challenges you face?

Anil Goyal : During initial period of CapSavvy, major challenge was to look for right candidates, who are like-minded and believe in CapSavvy vision and objectives. Company thoughtfully used social media platforms such as Linked-in, Indeed etc to reach out to right candidates and hand-picked them. Being a new entrant in the already crowded advisory space, it was difficult for CapSavvy to hire good candidates. However, due to past reputation of its founders, CapSavvy could get associated with a good mix of team.

Another challenge at CapSavvy during initial phase was to tie up with right ERP agency to manage clients’ projects and internal service team. CapSavvy had evaluated many ERP, Lead management software and Project Management Software. After thoughtful consideration and in order to serve its clients in best possible way, CapSavvy tied-up with Zoho Suite, who is currently best among all available options in ERP.

A common challenge for any new company is to fulfil all regulatory requirements and managing compliances. At CapSavvy, they found it easier to manage due to founders’ prior experience of running successful ventures at leadership positions
