“In order to attract the best talent from the country, you have to go to the places where they are. We started in the middle of the country when we opened Hyderabad center, and then went south with the Bengaluru center”, Kumar said. “My vision to create the Noida center was to attract the best talent that graduates from some of the world-class engineering and management institutions in the country’s north.”, Kumar added.
“Our mission is to empower every person and every organization on this planet to achieve more,” Kumar added.
