Vivek Ghai (Founder and CEO)
Like the overwhelming majority of mankind, Vivek lived the 9-to-5 life. That, however, was until he was bitten by the Entrepreneur Bug.
Having dropped a comfortable job for the rough-and-tumble world of entrepreneurship, Vivek weathered storm after storm, trying to keep Panacea afloat in the face of strong gales. He started off handling web development projects and worked doggedly to give his company an edge in the market.
Now that he owns a full-service software development company, Vivek is on his guard against complacency. Back-slapping is as much a part of his day at work as ensuring that projects get delivered on time.
Vivek unwinds by surfing the Internet to stay abreast of the latest in IT and playing with his son. He is an alumnus of Devi Ahilya University, Indore. .
