About Me

Sahil Parikh ><

I am an author, web entrepreneur, founder & Chief Trailblazer of Synage Software — a technology company that successfully pioneered one of India’s first home-grown SaaS products, DeskAway in 2007. My first book, The SaaS Edge (How companies can leverage Software As A Service for competitive advantage) was published by Tata McGraw-Hill in early 2011.

Things have worked out kinda well, for instance…I had been named a Paragon 100 Fellow (Asia’s most inspiring young entrepreneurs and social change makers), shortlisted in BusinessWorld’s Top 30 Young Entrepreneurs in India, featured on the cover and leading story of India Today Aspire and showcased on CNBC’s prestigious TV show ‘Young Turk Innovators’.

I am currently managing Brightpod — a project management software for marketing teams.

This blog has no particular schedule. I write when I want to and when I have a strong opinion about a topic, article or a broader theme. My posts range in length from a few sentences to a couple of paragraphs. I mostly write about technology, business, productivity, life, ideas etc.

When not in front of the computer, I spend time reading, writing, playing golf, tennis, and traveling to exotic islands with my wife and daughter.

You can follow me on twitter or get in touch via email (sahil dot parikh at gmail). Oh, I am an alumni of UNC Chapel Hill (Computer Science).

Sahil Parikh Book Launch ><

It took me almost a year and a half to write this book while also managing my startup DeskAway. This book is very easy to read and very non-technical. The main theme of the book revolves around how businesses can harness the power of Software As A Service, Web 2.0 and on-demand computing to lower cost, increase efficiency and productivity. Everything is moving to the Web and so should your business!
