Founder & CEO
Sanjeev Shukla’s passion for business and social entrepreneurship led him to start Sanmita. As the founder & CEO, he is at the helm of all operations at Sanmita. However, Sanmita is not his first business venture. His past ventures have included Infobyte, which grew to become the largest distributor of Zenith Computers in Northern India. The company grew by more than 100% every year under his leadership. In 2000, Sanjeev moved to the United States to establish a subsidiary of Infobyte.
Sanjeev’s management philosophy is simple and focused towards people. He believes that “each individual has tremendous potential” and judges people on three criteria: honesty, willingness to work and ability to be trained.
Sanjeev is passionate about getting knowledge and passing it on to others. Had he not pursued a career path in business, he would have liked to be a teacher. In fact, one of his future ambitions is to open schools which will use the web to enable people in remote villages in India to access quality education.
Ask him about his hobby and he will answer “business.” This probably explains his dual MBA from Cornell University and Queen’s School of Business. Sanjeev believes that “doing business gives people the flexibility to do many things and the freedom to experiment with their ideas. It enables people to execute a personal mission at a much faster pace.” Sanjeev is an avid consumer of leading business publications such as Harvard Business Review, McKinsey Quarterly and Knowledge@Wharton.
Sanjeev commits himself 100% to his goals, “Whatever I do, I do it to the best of my ability.” This dedication towards his work was evident on a trip to Serbia, where he helped local farmers improve their business. Despite language barriers, in a short span of two weeks, he was able to analyze the key issues and find simple solutions that addressed the farmers’ business needs. Sanjeev does not believe that language itself should be a barrier to helping people address their problems. According to him, it is the intent that matters.
Sanjeev brings this passion and commitment to his clients and team at Sanmita. His past experiences and deep knowledge of IT, finance and business lend him the edge to lead Sanmita on the path to success.
