About Anurag Pal

Escalon Services

United States

The founders of Escalon have all started, run and exited multiple businesses. We know firsthand the frustration of entrepreneurs who are trying to change the world but are getting bogged down by the unending demands of trivia - paying bills, sending out invoices, running payroll and finding the right insurance. We’ve also held executive positions in large corporations like GE, HP, and McKinsey & Company. So we knew that corporations had the luxury of having their essential business services run smoothly in the background. Out of sight and out of mind. Why couldn’t small businesses enjoy this same convenience? Why did maintaining the back office need to be such a hassle? Back office services like accounting, payroll, HR, taxes etc. were limited to one or two services at a time. The search for and coordination of these providers was left to the business owner. There had to be something better than these time consuming and inefficient options.
