Sathya Kumar R, founder & CEO, Techindia Infoway, started his entrepreneurial journey in 2000 building custom ERP software applications for clients in manufacturing and healthcare. In early 2003, a serendipitous meeting with a client in the US, who was building a sleep lab, enabled him to transform Techindia into a healthcare management services firm. Today, the company employs over 600 people and serves clients in the U.S., Japan, Canada and Australia offering high-end, ‘near real-time’ cardiac monitoring, sleep disorder monitoring, EEG/EMG, clinical trials and highly specialized e-ICU and e-Nurse support. Sathya, who is also an active angel investor, is media shy and spends most of his time in the world of healthcare and disruptive technology. We convinced him to share his journey for Smart CEO’s Hidden Gem series, which tracks profitable, growth companies that are often away from the glare of mainstream media.
