Marketing is the core of every business which, if compromised can cause great destruction to an organization. The quote “Business has only two functions – Marketing and Innovation” by Milan Kundera rightly defines how crucial both of these elements are. This approach was adopted well by Innovation Central Int’l, a marketing consulting company based in the national capital. The company was founded by Achal Kaushal in 2008. Innovation Central was established to help small and mid-sized enterprises design their marketing campaigns. Another major objective to introduce this organization was to infuse innovation with marketing and deliver solutions that elevate its clients’ businesses. Beyond its marketing solutions, Innovation Central also offers solutions for Retail, Online Business, Strategic Alliance, Business Development, Liquidating Inventory, and Innovative Media Planning.

Innovation Central took these instances as an opportunity and came up with the idea of corporate barter, wherein the clients are enabled to liquidate goods that are lying unused and thereafter avail the services offered by the company. This was considered a viable option by the clients. While the company’s innovative solutions helped it get an edge over the competitors in the later years of its existence, the initial phase didn’t offer much to Innovation Central. Soon after the company’s establishment, global economic slowdown hit the markets and the repercussions were felt by the organization as well.
The company took almost two years to come out of this critical situation and to sustain its presence. Since then, the company has been progressing remarkably.
