I am a digital thinker, innovator and mentor having interests in technology, education, and entertainment.
As a Founder and CEO at Appetals, I lead a team which develops digital products in a way that allows people to connect with something deeper in themselves, with those around them and with the creator, even if that creator is an entity. We believe people don’t buy inventions, creations or messages. They don’t buy technology. They buy what things do to and for them. For us, it’s about how to create the experience of connection and consumption.
Our team at Appetals works closely with clients to shape their ideas into web software and mobile applications with ethics, speed, and boldness of entrepreneurship.
My workshop on “Idea to IPO: The mindset, method, and toolkit for starting and scaling business” aims to help entrepreneurs realize the journey and prepare themselves well for a successful journey. The Idea to IPO workshop has been presented to over 1000 entrepreneurs and students of leading management colleges.
I work with a team of reputed career trainers for enhancing the employability skills of graduate students. We have organized several workshops in colleges and helped of students in getting hired by leading companies.
As an erstwhile CIO for Sony Music and CEO at Zee Digital Convergence Limited, I was instrumental in starting up a mobile VAS Company, Online Portals, Digital Assets Management System, and high impact technology-driven business solutions.
I am a published writer with credits of over 80 articles on technology, media and business for leading magazines such as MIS Magazine, CIO Magazine, Data Quest and many others.
I was featured as “CNBC Young Turk” for launching world’s first “3G Car TV” and conferred with several awards for my contributions; including CIO Of The Year Award from CIO Magazine, Best IT Implementation Award from PCQuest Magazine and others.
