I am an entrepreneur, technology evangelist and I love mentoring and getting involved in emerging technology start-ups. I believe that the power of technology can make available all that humanity deserves - irrespective of their social status, ability to pay or geographic location.
In 2001, I founded 24x7 Learning and led it's growth in enterprise segment for over a decade to become India’s largest e-learning implementation company. Over the last few years, I have helped large corporates like Aditya Birla Group, Essar, Accenture, Wipro, GMR, Barclays Bank, L&T, Dell, Samsung, Vodafone (to name a few) leverage technology enabled learning to achieve positive business impact. We also successfully raised two rounds of investments including US$ 4 million from Network18, India’s leading media conglomerate.
Prior to founding 24x7 Learning, I had successfully setup business and operations for two large multinational companies, Parametric Technology Corp, USA and Cimatron, Israel, in India and held leadership positions in Patni Computers, Wipro and HCL-HP.
I am a mechanical engineer by education and specialize in creating and implementing Go-to-Market strategies, demand creation, international partnerships, setting up distribution networks, B2B market development, product management, acquiring marquee customers for new products, business operations, strategy and high-value solution selling.
I love Sculpting and Collage and have won many national level prizes. I am now getting back to my old passion. I love to connect with people from different cultures and backgrounds to enrich me (and others hopefully).
Promoting and supporting innovative tech startups that have a huge social impact.... exciting times ahead!
