Bringing Poornatha Power into Your Business -
Through Positivity, Passion and Perseverance
Poornatha is a capacity building organisation, in the pursuit of propelling nation's growth by empowering Individuals and Institutions. We partner with entrepreneurs to enable them gain confidence in decision making, and create and maintain a culture of trust. We aim at creating an overarching ecosystem by offering diagnostic tools, coaching, and a support system to enable MSME business leaders to identify areas of growth and increase the confidence to make effective business decisions.
We help bring about a holistic “Poornatha” transformation in both individuals and institutions for a renewed business outlook and amplified productivity.
Who we are
We started in 2017 through the efforts of a prominent entrepreneur and philanthropist, Dr Bharath Krishna Sankar and his team of young, dynamic leaders based in Madurai. They embarked on this journey with the noble intention of imparting their professional life teachings to entrepreneurs seeking guidance. What started as a simple talk soon spiraled into a comprehensive, interactive workshop spanning weeks aimed at creating competent business leaders. Our mentors and advisors have an acute sense of the business climate in the MSME sector, especially in Tier II cities. This puts us in a formidable position to perceive and better understand the challenges faced by such entrepreneurs.
Today, our first batch of entrepreneurs and their ascending growth charts in the past couple of years have made our chests swell with pride and is a telling example of Poornatha’s impact.
We breathe and live by our set of values, which we proudly call “Our Mantras.” These mantras provide clarity to the mind and are way of life. They help us tap into the essence of our being, thereby boosting us in our professional and personal pursuits by creating a transformation within, that leads to a transformation without. These mantras form the foundation of our identity as an organization and we strive to meaningfully reflect them in our day-to-day work and in our interactions with stakeholders.
We Treasure Our People
We are socially-minded and passionate about creating an impact in people’s lives. By providing you with the tools to be a more confident business leader, you are able to grow your profits and create a positive work culture resulting in a ripple effect on the economic, emotional and social well being of your employees and their families at large.
We Cultivate Our Minds
Learning Matters, and we are relentlessly curious. We are constantly looking out for opportunities to widen our breadth of knowledge, improve our processes and provide the best offerings suitable to your needs with the combination of both creative and critical thinking.
We Perceive Our Processes
We are thoughtful, detailed and structured. With the logical end in mind, we approach all our processes through an interesting and engaging step-by-step approach; working tirelessly towards results that have a long-lasting impact for you and for your organization.
We Empower Our Team
We understand that we are on the same team with you as our client, and are working towards the same goals. As such, we provide all the support our entrepreneurs need; from hand-holding in the early steps to providing a network of support in the latter stages. We are fully dedicated to empowering you to make the best decisions every step of the way. We know that people don’t care how much we know unless they know how much we care.
We Raise Our Bar
Being good is never good enough, and we aim to constantly improve ourselves from good to great to glorious. This translates to our services; we evaluate ourselves continuously and challenge ourselves and our clients to higher standards.
We Earn Our Trust
In a world of volatility, complexity and ambiguity, we acknowledge your doubts and uncertainties. We insist on clarifying your expectations and our promises and we keep our word, do our part, and follow through on expectations set, making sure that you evolve to be the business leader better equipped to make strategic decisions.
The MSME sector has proved to be a force to reckon with in our nation-building journey. As per the latest available government data, this sector employs around 11 crore individuals and contributes 29% to India’s rapidly growing GDP*. The government envisions pushing the growth arising from this sector to 50%. For this to become a reality, the MSME sector needs to overcome the basic challenges staring them in the face, namely availability of finance, adequate knowledge, availability of technology, availability of competent team members, constraints pertaining to expansion and modernisation among others.
We realize that the challenges and the processes of the MSME sector are unique and therefore requires guidance to reach their highest potential. Our goal is to provide an end-to-end support system for the MSME entrepreneurs so they can develop the confidence to make better strategic decisions and create an engaging and result-oriented culture in the organisation.
