Sachin Gopal

My name is Sachin Gopal and I was born in Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh, India. My mom and dad struggled initially but made it to so-called “middle class” family. I was always in awe of entrepreneurs as a kid and when asked about my dream job would just say “Wannabe Businessman”.

I started my first company TechSolutions when I was eighteen in our second home with three of my other friends who had a strong presence in the programming community. We were fairly successful and made some money. Lack of alignment between us caused a split. In 1992 I saw a magazine stating Linux intricacy and its lack of driver detection. I tried installing and after several unsuccessful attempts had it running. Over the years I painstakingly mastered areas around it.

Being an early adopter this skill helped me in providing consulting to small firms when I moved to Bangalore in 2003 helping me make a living out of Linux. Later as consultant/full time, I worked with some of the 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 business. On weekends, I work as a past life regressionist.

I am also an experienced meditator with more than 500HRS of practice with Vipassana, Zen, Arhatic Yoga and Srividya (Tantric Meditation- Mishra Tantra). Srividya Sadhna changed me from inside out and hence i practice this meditation daily as on today. Here is my meditation profile.

My entrepreneur dream journey does not end up here and is being carefully charted out as I write. I believe Entrepreneurial journey can be daunting and unlike what others think can also make you poor 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.
