Change is the only constant, especially in technology. With 20+ years in software business, I have seen many such emerging technology disruptions, from client-server to web to social, cloud to mobile to IoT, Data Warehouses to Data Sciences to Machine Learning/AI. I have also worked in major industries, including Finance, Telecom, Healthcare and Pharmaceuticals, Consumer Goods, Advertising, Distribution, Retail, Oil and Gas.

Thanks to Trilogy/ for getting me to Austin, TX, the city we fell in love with and for showing me a path to startups. Co-founded Olivesystems, a telecom provisioning startup. Led a consulting company to spin off two startups, Context (enterprise marketing optimization) and Treasury Sciences (Enterprise Cash Flow and Treasury management).

Advisor and angel investor in many startups in TX with Capital Factory and rest of US with HBS Angels. Helping them from concept through multiple funding rounds. I love collaborating with exceptional entrepreneurs on moonshot ideas in technology innovations and I am betting on startups that bring real value to enterprise customers from AI/Machine and Deep Learning.

I have a Bachelors of Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering from India, Masters in Management Sciences from George Washington University and completed the Program for Leadership Development from Harvard Business School.
