"EVERYTHING YOU CAN IMAGINE IS REAL"
- Dinesh Makani, Founder - IBS Group
IBS is the culmination of many dreams that sparked its way into the business landscape in 2010.
We are a team of fellow professionals who have come together with the purpose of practising International standards for corporate excellence in organisations.
Armed with our professional degrees and rich corporate experience across various industry and sectors, we started IBS Operations in Mumbai and slowly expanded operations to Hyderabad, Pune, Nagpur, Delhi, Bangalore and then to South East Asia beginning with Singapore. We started with an aim to serve the enterprising Startups, promising SME sector, and various other organisations at all stages of their business cycle. Our Mission is to create holistic business value to organisations across geographies, by bringing together two valuable domains - Financial and Legal consulting services under one roof.
"We took the leap – from being successful industry professionals to establishing IBS Group as we saw the growing need for expert advisories in the changing Indian & Global market. India has been typically a hub of many unorganised businesses existing successfully with the organized sector. But globalization, ever-changing laws & consumer behaviors defined new parameters for existence as well as growth for an organization.
Thus we envisioned IBS – to help plug the gap between the need & supply of corporate advisors. And this is how we picture ourselves – creating growth stories for organizations in India and overseas as we evolve together in our respective turfs."
