About the Finalists
Shekhar and Krishnan started daVIZta, Inc. in 2010 with a dream of helping the Life Sciences industry make better revenue decisions based on strong analytics. With minimal external funding, Krishnan and Shekhar envisioned and built a state of the art technology solution that in 6 years has begun to make a difference in the day to day life and functions of Big, Medium and Small Life Sciences Companies.
Krishnan's philosophy has always been a belief that "If you think small, you are destined to remain small. If you think big, you have a chance to exceed your dreams." At daVIZta, he lives this mantra and as a leader of the company, evangelizes this message this throughout the firm. Shekhar credits his practice of the daily "hustle" being instrumental in thriving first as a start-up and now, as a young and growing company, adding new product offerings to daVIZta's portfolio and making a foray into new sectors of the industry. He is proud to see how favorably daVIZta has been received in the Industry since its founding and is eager to see what the future holds for them.
