The Client-First Approach
Unlike most other consultants that go for the one size fits all approach, Surmount Business Advisors prioritizes on offering bespoke solutions that will offer the best results for their clients. “Having worked with corporate clients in the past, I realised that businesses need real value added services that help them grow their business exponentially, which included financing, strategy, growth and business advisory. These are quite wide terms and can mean different things for different business setups. Our work involves solving business problems through deep diving into various business aspects to get the desired growth/solution. We offer a wide variety of services ranging from accounting and taxation advisory, business and strategy consulting, and growth advisory. Our intention in any of the services is to add value by solving a problem, be it establishing an efficient tax mechanism, optimising capital allocation, tracking and benchmarking key metrics, and business model pivoting to name a few. We also invest and onboard high growth start-ups and help them in their growth story. We have guided various firms to business growth and one of our newly established B2B segment client was looking to get right leads for their offerings, and we got a tie-up in place for them for 5 years, through which they got many leads and conversion and it enabled them to get authenticity within their segment”, avers Niraj Bora, Founder, Surmount Business Advisors.

When asked about what acted as the major catalysts behind the company’s growth, Niraj says,” I would say we learnt a lot building these companies and working with the clients from different verticals since the beginning and that’s the best takeaway in last few years for us. We are also very selective of the people we hire and the clients we work with. We typically look for clients / businesses who are looking at exponential growth trajectory, and not very keen on low growth business. What we believe is the get working with companies who are at their inflection point in their life cycle and that enables us to grow faster with them”.
