Business Magazine

“We don’t just offer advice, we become an integral part of our client’s business.”

 Piyush & Rakhi Khandelwal (Co-Founders, ANKR Global)

Piyush Khandelwal’s ANKR Global was born in the crucible of unprecedented times. In a mere three years of inception, three main pillars of his firm- ANKR Consulting, ANKR Tech, and ANKR Skill have blossomed into a powerhouse, with a dedicated and highly professional team of 100 people today.

ANKR Consulting crafts tailored solutions for SMEs, MNCs, large companies and startups. It offers advisory work on US GAAP, Ind AS, Internal controls, CFO office services, and startup funding assistance. ANKR Tech uses cutting-edge technologies to offer a spectrum of services. The third pillar, ANKR Skills provides skill development courses to create Techno-finance professionals and entrepreneurs of the future. 

Piyush is a Chartered Accountant who loves to blend his financial expertise with state-of-the-art technology and AI tools. After honing his skills for 13 years in Big 4 accounting firms, he decided to incept ANKR (Authentic, Nimble, Kindel, Ruthless) Global. His vision of providing high-quality cutting-edge advisory and skill development services in the accounts and finance domain received support from CA Rakhi Khandelwal. She not only brought an empathic approach to the firm but also helped in setting up the processes and compliance. 

“Our determination, focus, and solution-oriented approach set us apart in the industry. We’re not just consultants; we’re your business partners in success,” says Piyush Khandelwal. 

“Our commitment to delivering excellence, adaptability to client needs, and dedication to nurturing the talents of the future make us more than just a company; we’re a catalyst for success in a world defined by change and innovation,” adds Rakhi. 

The Road To Greatness Is Marked By Challenges

In a competitive corporate world, finding and attracting the right talent is quite difficult, especially in specialised fields like finance and technology. The firm brilliantly overcomes this challenge by emphasising its unique culture, mission, and opportunities for growth to resonate with prospective employees. 

Furthermore, another unforeseen obstacle that hindered the growth path was the COVID-19 pandemic but the firm’s ability to pivot, adopt remote work solutions, and remain resilient during this challenging time proved beneficial.

And the most challenging of all- Managing the funds. Piyush rightly puts it, “ANKR is a bootstrapped startup which called for making strategic decisions about where to allocate resources, carefully monitor cash flow and explore creative ways to sustain and grow the business.”

ANKR Stands Different! 

  • Team ANKR always focuses on continuous improvement and creative thinking. The focus always remains on pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in finance and technology
  • The firm never believes in ‘One-Size-Fits-All’. It ensures that the solutions it provides to the clients perfectly align with their requirements
  • ANKR stays committed to delivering value, rather than competing solely on pricing
  • Agility and adaptability are the core strengths of the firm. It pivots when necessary, stays ahead of the curve and swiftly responds to shifts in the market

“We are dedicated to fostering authenticity in every facet of our operations, forging genuine connections with our team, valued business partners, and trusted vendors. We believe that transparency, honesty, and integrity are the cornerstones of sustainable relationships and we remain unwavering in our commitment to authentic interactions with all our stakeholders,” mention the duo.

Where Strength Lies In Team!

Piyush and Rakhi believe that big things in business are never done by one person; they’re done by a team of qualified people. Everyone is treated like a family member as the Founders call it the ANKR Family. ANKR places a sharp focus on the skill development of its employees. They have access to resources, training, and opportunities for their professional development. They receive continued guidance from experienced team members that fosters a collaborative and knowledge-sharing culture.

“We let them take the lead on projects, make decisions, and learn from real-world challenges. This hands-on approach sharpens their skills and fosters confidence,” reiterates the leaders while signing off.
