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 “Businessman”.
I started my first company TechSolutions when I was eighteen in our second home with three of my friends who had a strong presence in programming community. We were fairly successful and made good money. Lack of alignment between us caused a split in 1992. Same year I saw a magazine stating Linux (Operating System) intricacy and its lack of driver detection. I tried installing and after several unsuccessful attempts had it running. Over the years I painstakingly mastered the OS, Server Application and Security around it.
Being an early adopter this skill helped me in providing consulting to small firms when I moved to Bangalore in 2003. 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.
I am an experienced meditator with more than 3000HRS of practice with Vipassana, Zen, Arhatic Yoga and Srividya. On weekends, I am a Past life Regressionist and energy healer.
My entrepreneur dream journey does not end 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.
