The Magic Billion Story

There are over 63 countries globally with more than 80% employers struggling to find the right quality and quantity of talent. Let that sink in. If Global Research by top firms like McKinsey are to be believed, things are only going to become worse in the decades that follow. And India has abundant talent in all industry sectors, which can grow exponentially with global exposure.

This is the talent inequity that the father-daughter team - Basab and Aditi Banerjee - sought out to solve when they started Magic Billion in 2018. A chance discussion with a friend in Romania about how he couldn't grow his manufacturing company because young Romanians are not available to fill high skilled manufacturing roles. And these skill sets, along with many others, are readily available in India.The pilot project proved successful and now the first ever skilled and certified workers from India are working in their Plant in Romania.

In one year alone, Magic Billion has been able to curate the right kind of talent for employers in Romania, Italy, Sweden, Russia, Japan, UAE and Abu Dhabi. These include roles in the construction and manufacturing industries as well as those in healthcare, IT and agriculture, who we also prepared with language and culture immersion of the destination country. The proof has been in the pudding.

We are driven by a simple purpose: helping global employers fulfil the most critical talent gaps in their organisations today to enable them to reach their fullest potential.
