    Co­-founder and COO, Exotel Techcom Pvt Ltd | @Exotel

    Ishwar Sridharan is the co-founder and COO of Exotel Techcom Pvt Ltd, one of India's leading cloud telephony companies. Exotel helps businesses of all sizes manage their customer communication over calls and SMS without having to invest in infrastructure.

    Ishwar finished his Engineering in IT from SASTRA University. He then went on to do his Masters in Engineering from IIIT, Bangalore. He joined Yahoo! as a Principal Engineer right after. He worked on a bunch of things at Yahoo! including creating and implementing the video search algorithm for which he holds a couple of patents. It was at Yahoo! that he met Shivku, the CEO of Exotel. And when Shivku started Exotel, he asked Ishwar to join him.

    Since then, Ishwar has donned different roles across Exotel. Mostly, it involves being cool! Ishwar loves startups, building stuff, hacking, science, music, sketching, and problem solving. The order is up for debate, though.
