Jaspreet Bindra, emtech india 2017 speaker

Jaspreet Bindra

Jaspreet Bindra is currently the SVP- Digital Transformation of the Mahindra Group, where he does what a CDO does – transforming legacy companies to Digital. He is one of the ancient curiosities of the Internet, technology and startup world in India, having being born many years before the Internet was. He started his career quite conventionally in the venerable Tata Group, as a Tata Administrative Services Officer, and led functions and businesses in FMCG and Telecom. For some time, he was part of the startup team at Baazee.com (now EBAY India), as their COO. From thereon, his travels took him to Microsoft India – where he led the Internet, Retail, XBOX, Consumer P&Ls. Looking to something more unconventional, he became the CEO of AskMe, the yellow-pages-publisher-transformed-into-a-mobile-app-led local-search-play, which, incidentally, is now comatose. Jaspreet is quite active across the tech start-up ecosystem, and has invested, advised, mentored and incubated a dozen tech start-ups. He leads the CDO Forum of IAMAI, writes extensively on Digital Transformation, fancies himself as a Blockchain and AgriTech expert; and has dropped pearls of dubious wisdom at HBS, ISB, IIMA, IAMAI, CII and other academic and industry forums. Many years ago, he was surprised to see that Business Today had listed him as one of the ‘The Top 25 Young Managers in India’. Jaspreet is a Chemical Engineer (though he only spent 4 months practicing it), and an MBA in International Business. What he is most proud of is being a three-time National champion in Brand Equity Business Quiz, having been a keen quizzer in his salad days. Oh, and he is also a accredited Leadership Coach (PCC – ICF)
