About this event

Shashank Dixit is a successful entrepreneur and currently the CEO of Deskera Open Source. From a humble background to the CEO of a multi-million dollar software company, Shashank’s success reminds us about “from rags to riches” story but this story is written by his sheer hardworkship and the great vision of a person born with entrepreneurial instinct. Shashank went to Indian Institute of Technology in India and during his last year he conceptualized the idea of building an open source software company that would serve millions of SMEs in the world. It took him 8 years to build from that idea to Deskera, a leading enterprise open source company.  An entrepreneur at heart, Shashank loves to help and guide young entrepreneurs. Shashank believes that "it is the entrepreneur, who holds in the palm of his hand the power to change the destiny of this world".
