Market Analysis of Anant’s Competitors


In this blog post, we introduce two of Anant’s competitors in different areas of Anant’s mission. As Anant is focusing its internal efforts to become a product with users rather than a company with clients, one of the competitors that emerge are Sunan Designs, a design consultancy firm that offers graphic design and digital marketing support. Sunan Designs is an example of the direction that Anant is looking to progress towards. Their user-focused model is built to be service-oriented with the various payment options they present.
