My name is Sachin Gopal, and I was born in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. My mom and dad struggled initially but made it to the so-called “middle class” family. I was always in awe of entrepreneurs as a kid, and when asked about my dream job would say “Businessman.”
I started my first company, TechSolutions, when I was eighteen in our second home with three of my friends who had a strong programming community presence. We were reasonably successful and made good money. Lack of alignment between us caused a split in 1992. The same year I saw a magazine stating Linux (Operating System) difficulty and its lack of hardware detection. I tried installing it and, after several unsuccessful attempts, had it running. Over the years, I painstakingly mastered the OS around Server and Application Security. With very few Linux specialists, this skill helped me provide consulting to small firms when I moved to Bangalore in 2003. Later as a consultant/full-time, I worked with some top multinational companies like HP, DELL, Hinduja, Xen, and iGATE.
On the professional front, I currently head IT & IS for a Software company in Bangalore and help startups thrive with minimum infrastructure as a consultant. I am a digital marketer and a specialist in developing strategies for small-medium businesses.
I am an experienced meditator with more than 3000HRS of practice. However, I have practiced many traditions like Vipassana, Zen & Twin Heart, I found my solace in the Shakti tradition. On weekends, I am a Past life Regressionist and energy healer (Pranic Healing). I am also certified in Arhatic Yoga.
My entrepreneur dream journey does not end here, and is am working on different areas as I write. Also, an entrepreneurial journey can be daunting, and unlike what others think, it can also make you feel low, but what would that life be not trying? Let’s create some change, find a fix, explode out to areas we have never ventured. Success can come later.
