SnapLogic founder and CEO Gaurav Dhillon was recently interviewed by Jason Bloomberg as part of his Digital Influencer series on Forbes. The article goes back to Gaurav’s early days of learning computer chip design in college and traces the origins of the first company he founded in the early 1990’s – Informatica.
So why start SnapLogic after taking a company public after 12 years as a founder CEO? Here’s what Gaurav has to say about that:
“SnapLogic is so interesting and relevant, and it’s aligning to my passions. SnapLogic has the ability to be a great public company and I’ve never sold a company except to public investors. It’s amazing what we can do with the Internet of Things. Use streams of data to move businesses into the next century.”
I encourage you to read the entire article on the Forbes site.
