Eka is derived from the Sanskrit word “Ekam”, which means “ONE”. It was born out of Manav Garg’s vision to create a world class software product company out of India. The idea was to develop an end-to-end platform for firms to manage trading, operations, and risk across the physical commodity value chain. Manav realized firsthand the shortcomings in the existing software while working on the coffee desk at the GP Group, a US$ 2bn diversified group. He left his high paying job as a commodity trader and went back to his ex-employer Kirit Shah, chairman, GP Group to fund his venture.
Manav believed that with the software development capabilities in India and his understanding of the nuances of the commodity trading business, he could create a product that could manage end-to end physical commodity trade and risk management. Eka was formally set up in January 2004.
From 10 employees in 2004, Eka has grown to 250+ employees in 5 different offices around the world (India, USA, UK, Australia & Venezuela). Eka has competed and won deals against some of the biggest names in the CTRM industry including the likes of SunGard, Triple Point & OpenLink Financials. Eka has an impressive roster of clients including Fortune 500 firms and some of the largest global commodity companies like Cargill, REG, Louis Dreyfus, Graincorp, CBH, CHS, Noble Resources, Tata Steel, Hindalco, and Boliden.
