About the Co-Founder and CEO

1. What was your journey like to get you here as a CEO?

It was an eventful and satisfying journey with its own share of ups and downs. I started as a customer support engineer but have put on the hats of a consultant, technologist, and technical leader to lead the IT division of organizations. Some of the priceless business opportunities were, to work with some amazing technical minds in different geographies, supporting and working with people from different cultural backgrounds and nationalities. The passion for technology, empathy and care for people and drive for providing a good customer and stakeholder experience helped me to traverse the path with hard work, excitement, and perseverance. Lots of people supported and continue to support me in this journey. Whenever I worked really hard, luck was always on my side.

2. What do you consider your greatest accomplishment to date and what did you learn from this accomplishment?

The key accomplishments were all the learning’s in the journey. The wisdom of self-awareness, belief in continuous learning, appreciation of big picture and ability to adapt to change are the major accomplishments. The trust and goodwill showered on me by the people with whom I worked with, which include my customers, colleagues, suppliers, and bosses have been most rewarding.

3. What does it take to be a startup entrepreneur?

It’s a mix of a lot of different diverse characteristics. Every day I attempt to be a solution finder, solution builder, customer advocate, people champion, salesman and what not. If you work selfless, have patience and are prepared to navigate a turbulent sea, you are going to have an incredibly great journey.
