About Me

An entrepreneur, having experience working for startups and MNCs who is passionate about developing innovative Saas product.

Currently CEO & Co-founder at KonnectzIT , an innovative, no-code & workflow (visual builder) automation software. With 825+ apps integrations under the hood.

KonnectzIT is an Estonian approved startup company based in Tallinn, currently having $700k in revenue and targeting $1M next year.

Before KonnectzIT, I was a COO & Co-founder for Delaware, USA startup company SilFer Bots (now called Chatrace ), an AI-chatbot platform for multiple channels like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Instagram, SMS, Telegram, and Web.

In SilFer Bots, primarily spearheaded in marketing & operations, led to sales & revenue growth to $100K in less than a year & $10K MRR before exiting from the startup company.

Previously worked in MNCs companies like IBM & Schneider Electric (APC) for a decade across multiple geo-location, like India, USA, Singapore & Philippines in the information technology industry. Most recently as Product Manager for IBM products like collaborative software, AI & Analytics.

I enjoy travelling the world, planning to complete 50 countries before turning 40 and presently at 35 countries. Hobby in travel hacking knows which credit card (debit/prepared/crypto card too) to be used to get most of it [a penny saved is a penny earned] and loves to read books on motivational & self-help.

Love connecting with new people, give me a shout here on LinkedIn !
