Ambarish Gupta is the CEO and Founder of Gurgaon-based cloud telephony startup Knowlarity Communications. A graduate in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, he also holds an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University, USA. A technocrat at heart, he believes technology holds much potential for changing how the world does business. He started off his career as a researcher for the Fraunhofer Institute for Computer Graphics in Germany before joining software major EFI. He has also worked with consulting firm McKinsey & Company as a Senior Associate, and in 2009, founded Knowlarity, which provides business telephony software to some of the world’s leading corporations.
In his spare time, Ambarish can be found reading, listening to music, or taking care of his garden. Extremely environmentally and socially-aware, he believes advances in communications technology can help future generations to minimise their impact upon the planet, while allowing them to lead more rewarding and fulfilling lives. His commitment to this is reflected in Knowlarity’s initiatives such as the Emergency Call Card and CEO-for-a-day.
As the CEO of Knowlarity, Ambarish has used his excellent networking and people skills to gather together a talented and dedicated team that is responsible for the world’s best cloud telephony solutions. He believes in leading from the front, and is always available for advice - or a friendly conversation - to any member of the Knowlarity family.
