A collaborative advisory in-house think tank was initiated by Capt.Kohli when he crossed paths with other professionals at a start-up enterprise in 2007. Here they shared thoughts, challenged the base concepts, adapted and innovated fresh initiatives - bringing about improved sense to ambiguous situations. Years of consolidated experience was further refined under providential tutelage in fast moving environs. New product development was undertaken, redefining age old street retailing and cold chain concepts.
A band was naturally formed, one that excelled at developing and carrying a vision to its conclusive cascade. Crosstree was formally founded in Dec 2008 with the design & launch of this website. Please also visit the Newsworthy Page
CrossTree has since evolved into a collaboration of senior independant professionals, a think tank on tap for advising & mentoring on strategic inputs. For implementation based tasks, CrossTree team arranges & coordinates ties ups. CrossTree has frequently functioned ex-gratis.
The only policy, the sole belief - hands on experience and thought leadership is a must. The core team must be multi-functional, process initiators and those who have been ready to lead from the front. Long standing grass root experience can only fully appreciate & help drive a successful business.
Only with greater understanding comes true expertise!
