Kiran is what is known as a serial entrepreneur.
(He founds start-ups, the way most of us change underwear.)
First, he was co-founder and CEO of Zephyr Software in 1997, one of the web's earliest community services providers for the Indian diaspora. The company was purchased by Infospace in 1999.
Then, he co-founded Cogniti, a provider of business intelligence and analytics solutions to the retail industry. (Always busy, our Kiran.)
He is one of the pioneers of the hybrid model for a start-up,where an offshore development center and back office operations are established in India, business operations, conducted in the US. And, he's a Charter member of TIE.
Before accepting The Economist as his personal saviour,Kiran made a lot of money for other people, at Microsoft and Wipro,in business development, account management and partner management.
For some inexplicable reason, Kiran spends all his time between start-ups,discovering new Andhra and Indo-Chinese restaurants.
