Our Tamil Innovators Spotlight is an online series which puts the spotlight on individuals from the global Tamil community who are building great products, services and initiatives. Our latest event is brought to you in partnership with Startup Dojo.
I'm currently the CEO and Co-Founder at HowNow, one of the fastest-growing technology companies transforming the way organisations approach learning across the world. Our clients include tech unicorns GymShark and Checkout.com as well as global enterprises such as Sanofi, Telefonica and Investec to name a few. As mentioned by Forbes and TechCrunch, we're one of the edtech companies to watch out for, backed by industry influencers like Mark Pearson (founder of MyVoucherCodes.com), Andy Murray (Tennis Champion), Michael Whitfield and Chris Bruce (founder of Thomson Online Benefits) and Alwin Magimay (Previously digital leader at McKinsey, KPMG and Accenture).
I have been a speaker at over 100 events including HR Summit, AI Talks, Google Campus, London Tech Week and a mentor for Startup Britain and a Guest Lecturer on Entrepreneurship. I have been recognised by Virgin Media Business as one of the top 30 young innovative founders in the country as well as one of the top Asian Stars in Tech by KPMG. I'm a thought-leader on Startups, Technology and Workplace Learning contributing to publications such as The Guardian, The Telegraph, Startups.co.uk, and Training Industry to name a few. I was also recently featured in Bloomberg's documentary on Entrepreneurial Mindset.
