“Seventeen years ago, long before it became commonplace to work remotely from home, my wife, Shahera Choudhury, and I started this company from our bedroom office and in time converted our basement into our home office,” said SJ Innovation CEO Shahed Islam. “The beginning was hard. We sent hundreds of emails to potential clients and hardly received any response. However, once we started getting some client projects and were able to successfully deliver them, this became the driving source for us to continue on this journey.”
SJ Innovation now has branches in Goa, India, Ukraine, and Bangladesh, with a total of 150 employees worldwide and growing. As a team, SJ Innovation fully collaborates with and supports customers while providing high-quality work and ensuring success.
The company is also continuously working on broadening its range of services and thriving to improve performance.
“People have asked us over the years why we do not move to a bigger office, but we’ve chosen to invest in our employees instead of a fancy and expensive office in Manhattan because that’s where our strength lies,” said Islam. “Our employees are what makes SJ Innovation what it is today.”
“We are so honored to be included on this prestigious list of the successful independent small businesses in the United States,” added Choudhury. “SJ Innovation has grown not just in size but also in knowledge and is so proud of our global presence. We thank our employees for their hard work and dedication. They share in the success of this honor.”
