Name: Arjun Venkatraman
Organization: CGNet Swara
Title: Advisor
I am a social entrepreneur with a background in architecting bleeding edge tactical IT solutions into enterprise IT projects. I have worked with a diverse range of technologies and users, including the telecom sector in the United Kingdom and virtualization for financial services customers on Wall Street. Having grown up in a family of social activists, I have been interested in finding sustainable methods of information exchange, empowerment and participatory democracy. Of particular interest to me is the challenge of connecting communities with language and literacy barriers to the information superhighway. My experience with cross-functional application of new technology enables me to find quick and easy to implement, out of the box solutions to chronic problems.
