I met Ajit a few months ago where he was speaking on a panel. Ajit had some great insights to share. What also stood out was his academic credentials and professional achievements. He is definitely an inspiration to many young professionals.
Before joining KPCB, Ajit was with SAP for 5 years. At SAP, he worked for Dr. Hasso Plattner, CEO, Chairman and co-founder, SAP. Ajit played a key role in formulating and executing SAP’s internet strategy (mySAP.com). He co-founded SAPMarkets, a fully owned company of SAP, focusing on Marketplace applications and technology. As the Managing Director of SAPMarkets Americas, Ajit grew the business to $100 million in six quarters. In 2002, he laid the foundation for SAP Inspire, SAP’s New Venture Unit.
Optimist Warning: I hope many more people will take Ajit’s question to heart. It covers a VERY important issue.
