In the next 24 months, we will invest 350 crores in India, aspiring  to source and recruit top talent up to 500 people by next year-end, including product innovators who will work with our engineers to create global products, go-to-market experts who will market to our customers around the world and the strongest engineering talent that we can find. Fifteen to 20 per cent of our hires will comprise freshers who will be trained in-house for periods ranging from 3-9 months,” highlighted Rishi Daga, CEO at EagleView Technologies.

EagleView believes to have over 200 million users of its software globally, and considers Microsoft, IBM, SAP, and Oracle as its main peers.
