Chief Executive Officer, Lightstorm Telecom Ventures
I am currently CEO of a tech venture focused on changing the game at the exciting confluence of fibre-based connectivity, cloud services and digital consumption. We focus on the India market as a start but in general across emerging South Asia markets where more than 50% of future digital consumption resides.
I have, in the past 25 years , worked in developing emerging market businesses and managing large P&L’s for US-based global MNC tech giants – like Juniper Networks , Alcatel Lucent / Lucent (now Nokia Networks) and Microsoft in various capacities like Managing Director/business division head.
My passion for technology and its life-changing impact in emerging markets also fuels my participation in the start-up ecosystem in India in exciting areas such as Cybersecurity and wireless analytics mid-size organisations, where I serve as a mentor, advisor and board member in a few.
