Ashok Hariharan

#EnergizerBunny #DataGeek #ProblemSolver #CEO

Ashok started his career in semi-conductors, building high-speed network processors. His MBA degree took him away from Engineering and into the world of Business Strategy. He worked with British Telecom in London for 5 years before deciding that his heart lay in creating value grounds-up. 

He started IDfy out of his living room in Mumbai’s suburb of Bandra.

At IDfy, other than giving direction to the company, Ashok takes keen interest in product innovations. He is the chief problem solver, using data and logic to solve tech and process problems. 


He is also the chief entertainer, pulling pranks and celebrating mini-victories at work everyday.
