he Indian government officially commenced its contribution to the startup journey by launching ʻStartup India’ on January 16, 2016. The sheer aim of this initiative was to provide ample support, and benefits to innovative startups, eventually allowing them to flourish as full-fledged companies. Emerging as the land of businesses and startups, today, India has more than 7500 companies coming up per month. However, for a business to run effectively and efficiently, the primary and most important step is to have the necessary registrations and licenses. Established in 2010, MJ Management Consultants is one such prestigious firm which recognized the challenges that business owners faced while obtaining registrations for their companies. Initially set up as a recruitment firm, the company’s business model was soon restructured into an end-to-end Business Licensing and Registration provider, which is an essential requirement for the industry.
With a vision to bridge this gap between the customers and their requirements Manjunath, Founder & Proprietor, MJ Management Consultants says, “I started in early 2010 with minus investment, not even zero, minus because I had my own financial commitments, zero industry knowledge, and around eight employees. While the initial association was as a recruitment consultant, the early days paved the way to what MJ Management Consultants is today. During the initial days, we would meet numerous key-management level people for work purpose; it was while we waited to meet them that I noticed that most offices were facing difficulties in getting approvals from various government departments. They would often meet various consultants but due to some reason or the other, the companies often failed to get the right solution. Taking note of this, I approached the management to help them. I met each and every department’s officers, government officials and made them my consultants; I took their advice and eventually started getting the license and registration works done. This was our turning point, and at MJ Management Consultants, we left no stone unturned when it comes to cashing on this opportunity. Today, we are amongst the few consultants in India which are working with maximum government departments. Even though we are small and new, but we are working end-to-end with the officers.”
Quality Services through Qualified and Skilled Professionals
The alarming rate at which today’s corporate world is expanding, many business consultants are stepping up to offer affordable services to entrepreneurs that have a business idea but don’t have the knowledge, resources or the experience to move their concept ahead. Whether a company needs business registration, licensing, additional seed funding, innovative marketing strategies, assistance with finding the best employees for their workplace or all of the above, getting the right advice from the right source can be crucial to a business. MJ Management Consultants is a dynamic, business-arranged association, positioning itself amongst the most extreme substances in giving a wide collection of Business Licensing and Registration services.
Headquartered in Bangalore, MJ Management Consultants has helped start and operate thousands of businesses by offering end-to-end Licenses, Registrations, and Compliance.

A leap from Passion to Profession
Started in a small room with a desktop and eight employees who eventually left the firm in just three months due to financial constraints, the journey of MJ Management Consultants has not been a bed full of roses. Later I decided to have a great team instead of having employees. Now we have 30 in the team and every one knows my dream and vision. After this new team our attrition rate in below the 2 percent (in the last 8 year). However, with his strong determination and will power, Manjunath has overcome all the stumbling blocks, and his vision has transformed into reality. Manjunath got extreme moral, emotional and financial support from his wife Ms. Vasanthi. She had 12 years of experience in Payroll Management, HR Policies, and HR Compliance. She contributed almost her earnings to run this company. Today she also part of the company as Head -Business and Strategies.

Signing off with a vision to serve more customers, from India and overseas, Manjunath says, “Today, many foreign companies are hesitating to start their business in India due to the intricacies involves in our regulation system. I wish to convey our Indian regulatory bodies and policy makers to support the employees and employers. There is a need for change to drive in. Investors need to be aware of the laws and regulations. We need to create a positive outlook about our laws and country. My intention is to change the current perspective. I want to tell the foreign Investors that consultants and government officials fool you because of your ignorance or lack of knowledge in the land of law.
