About Us

StratBerry is a division of Advantage-India Consulting Pvt. Ltd., which has been into strategy consulting & knowledge incubation since 1998. Group company, finberry prepares young professionals for successful careers.

Unlike many publishers, whose competencies originate in the printing activity, our competency is knowledge.  Our inhouse digitized knowledge management system complements an enviable collection of books focused on strategy, management and markets.

We believe that sound knowledge has to be the foundation of any credible publishing service, just as good food forms the basis of any restaurant’s reputation. Food for thought?!

  2. Corporate Identity Authoring (CIA)
    Corporations and leaders generally use product / service advertising, sales promotion and press releases to reach out to their stake-holders.Corporate Identity can also be nurtured through a management-oriented book on the company / leader. Hence, our CIA offering.Very few companies have taken the benefit of this unique approach to identity building. Notable exceptions are Tatas, Godrejs, Biyanis, HDFC Bank & Crisil in India; General Electric, IBM, Goldman Sachs, McKinsey, Disney, Cadbury & Federal Express, have done the same internationally. The trend is catching up.A book is a superior means of communication for the following reasons –

    • Unlike other media, a book can give a complete message.
    • The credibility of an independently authored and objectively written book cannot be matched.
    • The company that is featured in the book is in a much better position to express its views on the message than is possible with most other means of communication.

    At your option, the book can be published under your authorship, or with independent authors.
