Kamal Karanth and Anil Kumar have been childhood friends, classmates and even colleagues at one point in their careers. So, it was only natural that the duo ended up founding a start-up. Having worked in the staffing industry for over 17 years, the duo spotted an emerging opportunity. With the engineering sector moving up the innovation and R&D curve, there is going to be higher demand for skilled and specialised technicians. Based on this premise, the duo launched a strategic talent firm, Xpheno, in April 2017, by investing around Rs.3.5 crore.
