India is a country that has just recently moved from being a power shortage nation to a power surplus generator (Source: news18.com). However that power is unevenly distributed and also subject to reliability and safety issues. This is of utmost concern for businesses (especially those in manufacturing and capital intensive businesses) that rely on a steady supply of power to run daily operations. Any fluctuations lead to operations being stalled and wasted resources. Further electrical fires are a frequent occurrence in India. Majority of electrical fires are a result of short circuit due to old wiring, damaged or poor quality of equipment and faulty outlets compromising safety of workers and equipment leading to huge losses for businesses (Source: ieema.org).
This gap in the market was exactly what motivated Rajen Mehta to start Efficienergi four years ago with a goal of becoming India’s most reputed consulting firm dedicated to improving health and efficiency of electrical power networks through technology enabled and data driven tools. Efficienergy offers unparalleled range of assessments and studies, multi-disciplinary panel of highly experienced experts and cloud-based tools coupled with structured field services.
With such a huge market to address scaling up and generating adequate sales became a challenge which is when Rajen turned to TAB. Interacting with other business owners has given Rajen the tools to dream big and create substantial impact with his business.
“TAB has helped us to stay focused on the final goal, develop discipline and accountability towards solving a challenging situation which have been instrumental in success of our business. Bonding with TAB co-business owners has been amazing, their constant support has given me the belief that I am not alone which is something a lot of small business owners face”
Also visiting board members offices to get a chance to see their company, staff & work culture has provided Rajen a better understanding towards best practices which can be implemented at Efficienergy. Sounding board issues provide better understanding to manage, communicate better and become a more effective leader.
Although Efficienergy has just started on its journey Rajen signs off by saying, “We have a long way to go but with TAB’s guidance, I am confident we can solve critical issues in India’s power sector”
