I am an author, web entrepreneur, founder & Chief Trailblazer of Synage Software - a technology company that successfully pioneered one of India’s first home-grown SaaS products, DeskAway in 2007. My first book, The SaaS Edge (How companies can leverage Software As A Service for competitive advantage) was published by Tata McGraw-Hill in early 2011.

Things have worked out kinda well, for instance…recently, I have been named a Paragon 100 Fellow (Asia’s most inspiring young entrepreneurs and social change makers), shortlisted in BusinessWorld’s Top 30 Young Entrepreneurs in India, featured on the cover and leading story of India Today Aspire and showcased on CNBC’s prestigious TV show ‘Young Turk Innovators’.

I am currently building Brightpod - a project management software for marketing teams.

This blog has no particular schedule. I write when I want to and when I have a strong opinion about a topic, article or a broader theme. My posts range in length from a few sentences to a couple of printed pages. I mostly write about technology, online marketing, productivity, ideas and my experiences running and growing Brightpod.

I frequently speak and write on SaaS, Cloud Computing, entrepreneurship and startups. When not in front of the computer, I spend time reading, writing, playing golf, tennis, and traveling to exotic islands with my wife and baby girl.

You can follow me on twitter, get in touch via email, or check out my profile. Oh, I am an alumni of UNC Chapel Hill Computer Science.
