The technology sector has been built on audacious ideas ( e.g. let’s put the power of a mainframe on the desktop, let’s put the power of a PC in a wireless phone).
Ashok Soota’s audacious idea is that you can build a strong, competitive IT services company from India founded on the principles of self-awareness and happiness and make it one of the fastest growing technology companies in the world.
As the Executive Chairman, Happiest Minds Technologies. Mr. Soota has the business provenance to do this. He is one of the pioneer-builders of the Indian IT industry (and is recognized as one its “12 Gems”) Prior to founding his current company, Happiest Minds, he led the growth of Wipro’s IT business from $2 million to a $500 million run-rate. He was also founding Chairman and Managing director of MindTree, now a global IT services firm.
In addition to his solid entrepreneurial track record, Mr. Soota also possesses a profound personal philosophy which permeates his new venture. Happiest Minds is founded on the deceptively-simple-sounding principle that the happiest employees make the happiest customers. This places a great emphasis on the importance of corporate culture, with the Happiest Minds team working together to build a company that lives and breathes mindfulness, sharing, integrity, learning, excellence and social responsibility. And this foundation appears to be holding up very well. Today, at end of its third full financial year, Happiest Minds is a global company with 1450 employees serving 95 enterprise customers in eight countries around the world.
