Noida/Greater Noida/Ahmedabad/Bangalore/Mumbai Job Code: 1121077

Manager - Business Valuations (Work from home 2021)

Company Profile : Knowcraft Analytics (

We are a focused end-to-end valuation support services provider. Valuation and transaction advisory firms count on us for our domain expertise, extensive experience, academic pedigree and financial modeling skills. Founded in April 2012 by a team of accomplished senior-level valuation professionals, we are based out of Ahmedabad, a fast-growing city that enjoys close proximity to Mumbai (the financial capital of India).

Our operating model blends cross-industry research expertise with world-class valuation capabilities. We aim to provide our clients with

insights that aid better business decision-making.

Knowcraft - the story behind the name:

We realize that knowledge is relevant only when backed up by the right application. To that extent, our job is to bring our industry knowledge and apply it like skilled craftsmen. Each business problem is unique and at Knowcraft, we craft our solutions to serve a distinct purpose and it helps that we have a team that is young, driven and masters at their craft.


We believe in offering value-added, high quality and flexible valuation services, with a strong commitment to business ethics, data integrity and confidentiality.


Our team consists of valuation professionals who have assisted on over 500 valuations for tax and financial reporting purposes. Our valuation specialists have been working in this space for more than five years with academic credentials to back their work. With a keen eye for analytical insights, they have built a reputation of providing thoughtful, credible and defensible valuation opinions.


Our robust valuation approach blends in our in-depth understanding of several niche industry sectors, extensive experience in dealing with complex capital structures with multiple classes of shareholders and other unique challenges involved in valuation of early to later stage businesses. This includes cross-industry exposure to companies through all developmental stages; from seed funding to the pre-IPO stage.

In fact, we know that the traditional Income and Market based methodologies may not suit the appraiser's requirements of new age businesses. Hence, constantly tracking the developments in such industries enables us to evolve our methodologies and capture their values appropriately.

We strive to ensure that our valuation reports not only stand the scrutiny of auditors, IRS and other stakeholders; but also provide clear insights into the industry value chain, key performance metrics, key growth drivers and other dynamics.
