I'm working on a startup called Indix.
I was at Microsoft for 19 years. My last role was as corporate VP of the Startup Business Accelerator, a new division I created to grow startups for Microsoft.
I was corporate VP of Developer & Platform Evangelism from 2000 to 2007. I built the D&PE division from 0 to over 1,500 people worldwide and grew Microsoft’s developer tools business from $500 m to $1 billion. Along the way we launched .NET.
I was Regional Director, Microsoft South Asia from 1996 to 1998 and directed Bill Gates’ first trip to India in 1997. This hugely successful visit led to a massive expansion of Microsoft’s investments in India and had a catalytic effect on the Indian software industry.
I've run microsoft.com and the Internet security product unit. I started out at Microsoft on Windows multimedia and Interactive TV.
I have a master's in engineering from MIT, a master's in management from MIT Sloan School and a bachelor's in mechanical engineering from Anna University's College of Engineering, Chennai. I am on the Executive Board of the MIT Sloan School.
I captained the Anna University cricket team in 1985 and have represented Tamil Nadu state and South Zone in under-19 cricket (1982) and under-15 cricket (1980). I have also represented Tamil Nadu in under-22 cricket.
I was the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) junior school cricketer of the year in 1980 and won the S.W. de Allwis Trophy (L. Sivaramakrishnan won in 1979 & 1981).
I have played for Madras Cricket Club and Young Men’s Association in TNCA's first division league.
I love art and make photographs.
