Like most companies, Igniva began with one person and the conviction that there was a better way of doing business. But founder Raj Dhonota knew that sustainable growth would only come through flexible teams of specialists. Teams that would work together, delivering breadth and depth of expertise to help Igniva’s clients succeed.
Through rapid evolution, Igniva today comprises around 400 people worldwide working in configured, interlocking teams across all technology and business disciplines. Working to tried-and-trusted processes, they're able to deliver maximum value to clients, drawing on experience across start-up, SME and enterprise in sectors and markets that span the world.
Igniva began as a twinkle in Raj Dhonota’s eye. The company is now global with clients from SMEs to Enterprise but Raj still leads Igniva’s strategic direction – and the twinkle is definitely still there. Find out more about Raj.
