Full bio

Sanjay loves his wacky sense of humour ‐ entrepreneurs who work with us will have to deal with a handful of self‐graded B‐grade puns!

Sanjay is well known for his founding role at ZipDial (now acquired by Twitter) and his role at mChek, the path breaking startup in secure payments, Sanjay has trodden the path of an entrepreneur all through his career. After completing his bachelor's degree in engineering, Sanjay headed to Paris where he earned his Master's degree.

After a stint at Xerox PARC in Palo Alto, Sanjay embarked on a journey to build world class teams and products that took him through startups like Ketera and Portal Software, mChek, Zipdial & Ezetap which he co‐founded in 2010.

An active member of the community, Sanjay is a Rotarian and a charter member of TiE, a volunteer at iSPIRT, and organizes the Fintech Panel at the Nasscom Product Conclave. He also played a prominent role on the UIDAI project under the leadership of Nandan Nilekani. He is a frequent speaker and evangelist in the entrepreneurship and payments circuits in the country. Sanjay loves to blog ‐ anything you say that is half‐way intelligent will turn into a subject for his blog.
