Pathway Stories

After completing B Tech in ECE from Saintgits [2002-2006], I joined Wipro, where I gathered experience handling global clients over a period spanning 6 years. Thereafter I decided to chase my dreams of pursuing a startup opportunity along with my classmate from Saintgits, Biju, working out of the Silicon Valley in America. (We started our venture with solutions for urban mobility and to automate processes moved into access control space.) APSO was selected as the icon for the Startups Flex in NASSCOM 2017.

I launched my first startup with the inputs gained during my professional career [2008-12 CSE Batch]. With the determination to generate more employment and also to bring about change in our nation, I have launched another startup named Rezpo. Rezpo is a real-time feedback collection and data analysis system. Rezpo changes the way feedbacks are collected and analysed in Hospitals, Educational Institutions, etc. Rezpo gives users a mobile application to run feedbacks on iPad, Android tablet, iPhone or other smartphone devices and a dashboard that analyses and visualizes results through graphs and charts.
