I have spent my entire career either working for startups or starting businesses. I now spend time between coaching aspiring entrepreneurs in launching their ventures, apps and websites, and building Arkenea, a partner to entrepreneurs in launching their mobile apps and website businesses.
I am a published author at Forbes, Entrepreneur.com, VentureBeat and Under30CEO, and a member of the Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC) – an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most successful young entrepreneurs. I am a Certified Clarity Expert and an Advisor at The Greatest Pitch.
My fourteen-year technology, media, communications and digital marketing experience helps in designing engaging strategies for individuals, businesses and organizations that seek to drive their business or idea forward through cutting edge mobile experiences. My hands-on approach with assignments has helped brands achieve 1-million-plus downloads in the app store. Also, my passion for creating value for customers helps transform one-line client briefs into successful products.
Apart from my entrepreneurial ventures, I have worked with India’s leading media houses: A&M Magazine, NDTV and Times Now; financial services communications agency: Concept PR; and AEGON Religare Life Insurance as the Corporate Communications and Digital Marketing Head. I have been quoted in India’s Bloomberg UTV business and news channel and Moneycontrol.com and my company has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, among others.
