Thanks for the interest to know about me.
“Adding Value through Building Sustainable Organizations, Growth Consulting and Interactions“.
My journey to become a successful Entrepreneur started as an ambition when i was in 10th grade and has taken me through a road, in which, I met and worked with great people who will always inspire me. The opportunity to become an entrepreneur came along, when, with Vasanth Kamatgi, I started ecomZera to pursue opportunities in ecommerce. We have come a long way from our garage kind of start-up in Hyderabad, India during May 2005. As Co-founder & CEO of ecomZera for 5 years, the business grew and it spun off into three new entities to increase focus on the value proposition they provide to the market.
At present, I am CEO of Gifting Inc and Managing Director of ecomZera. Gifting Inc is into International Gift Delivery delivering to more than 180 countries across the world. ecomZera is into delivering ecommerce platforms based on open source technology and delivers Web Applications integrating Digital Spaces into existing ecommerce applications.
To keep myself fresh in thoughts and perspectives, I do Growth Consulting in Internet Retail, ecommerce Technologies, Digital Marketing and Global Business Development.
I understand that i have covered a small distance in my journey and have a long way to go.
Prior to this, I worked as Business Head to another startup and helped it grow. I should say, i was – “Bitten by the bug of ecommerce” working there.
I am passionate about:
Books I read few books but live by them, once i like it (i read mostly non-fiction and don’t read a book until somebody recommends it to me)
Entrepreneurship: For me, Vivekananda Quote says it all – “Stand up, be bold, be strong. Take the whole responsibility on your own shoulders, and know that you are the creator of your own destiny. All the strength and succor you want is within yourselves. Therefore, make your own future.”
eCommerce: It is combination of Business & Technology that makes ecommerce very interesting to me. ecommerce market is at a nascent stage & has many niche areas to work on.
Digital Marketing Digital Communication has changed the way we live and therefore, has to be understood & practised. I experiment with lot of Digital Marketing strategies as the field is nascent and provides unlimited opportunities
Global Business Development World is becoming smaller by the day, and presence across the globe is no more a choice. “Think Global and Act Local” is something i practise day in and day out.
