“You have to dream before your dreams can come true.” - A. P. J. Abdul Kalam An entrepreneur acts as an anchor to his business, encompassing all his ideas with innovation and creativity. He enlightens his business to clasp new heights. Although being an entrepreneur is not an easy task, it is all about experiencing ups and downs. The nature of business requires a lot of hard work and patience as ‘all good things take time to happen’; for example- ideas and opportunities take time to get materialized and skills and understanding require a lot of research and market analysis. Building a company and shaping up its future is a tough job. The saying by famous and successful Jeff Bezos, founder and CEO Amazon “I knew that if I failed I wouldn’t regret that, but I knew the one thing I might regret is not trying,” stands testimony to it. Hence, we salute the power and persistence of successful entrepreneurs who have excelled in their respective domains.
In this edition of ‘SR 30 Entrepreneurs of the Year’ we are presenting a new approach and different perspective by bringing the contribution of all featured Entrepreneurs to the forefront. Ranked as per our strict survey of market standard compliance, this comprehensive list intends to help you chose the best solution provider for your explicit desires. We wish all the featured entrepreneurs and companies, the very best for their future endeavors.

“Ultimately, the cloud is the latest example of creative destruction: creating wealth for those who exploit it; and leading to the demise of those that don’t.” - Joe Weinman
loudFX is an industry leader in the global Platform Economics market with leading Enterprise IT Transformation, Digital E-Commerce and Anything as a Service Platforms through the provision of Cloud Service Automation, Cloud Service Management and Cloud Billing, Analytics and Reporting solutions, transforming businesses through the promise of technology. Since inception, CloudFX’s primary goal has been to lead and enable customers that are wishing to prosper in the “Digital Age” through the adoption of industry leading Cloud platforms, disruptive technology innovation, world class solution quality and proven advanced services, as primary business model and success differentiators.
CloudFX is positioned extraordinarily well and this reflects the deep understanding of the inner workings of this industry, how different industry segments will reposition and innovate to improve their respective positions and ultimately, where is the technology landscape headed and what kinds of services, solutions and platforms will customers need to thrive in an evolved market landscape more dependent upon technology than ever before. The current positioning reflects very significant investment in R&D and Human Capital efforts to ensure that the organisation and companies who partner with them are leaders in their respective markets.
Motivation behind the Foundation
The company started out focusing
12 | The Silicon Review | July-16
on supporting customers transform large scale physical asset based data centre’s into consolidated, virtual infrastructure environments supporting global technology leaders like VMWARE, Cisco, EMC, NetApp, VCE etc. who outsourced what would be described as mission critical services delivery into key, strategic industry verticals like Banking, FSI and Telecommunications. After a point in time, it realised that given the time the “consolidation” process was taking, pre-technical and service automation and pre-operational transformation, at the rate and pace these companies were taking, they wouldn’t reach a state of optimised IT, capable of serving the business real time and enabling their innovation and realignment to a newly defined set of economic conditions and customer expectation for many, many years, worsening the “reputation” of IT and exacerbating the growing trends of “shadow IT” (where the business go off and do their own thing because IT is to lethargic and slow). As a result of these first hand experiences, it decided to take on 3rd party investment and put that working capital to work with a vision to build a platform that could take a business from their current state or IT to a future, optimised state of hybrid IT in weeks potentially years or decades and that became the genesis of CloudSelect, a business that has now been built and subsequently evolved over the past several years. Today, it is one of the only cloud and ICT independent Digital and Cloud Service platform providers capable of automation tens of thousands of workloads and yet normalising consumption, provisioning, service
management, analytics, billing and payment irrespective of the source of the service. The company is proud of where it is but with IoT and AI now in front of us, both driven at some level by API’s, it has developed an incredible platform to evolve into different directions which is exciting.
The founder’s words:
“The motivation was simple contribution and enable change or said differently, change the way this industry operates, deliver measurable customer value, make IT a contributing component of our partners P&L and Balance Sheet and allow organisations to truly harness the speed of innovation and contribution of technology to enhance the way they bring their products and services to market. Even today, I personally get involved in understanding our customer’s businesses and work across my team’s and theirs to ensure they are receiving best in class guidance and using the most optimal combination of technology’s to maximise their business success. I truly care about our customers, doing business ethically, delivering value and making sure that if someone partners with us, they are successful as a result of that commitment.”
Understanding the market landscape
The ICT and Telco industries and the businesses dependent upon their services are presently in a period of profound and unprecedented change and as specialist in this space, CloudFX Group decided several years ago to invest and establish capabilities that would enable partners and customers to seamlessly transition this
generational technology change or optimise the monetization that this period represents through the emergence of innovative and differentiated technologies, software and platforms. Over the past 4 years, the Cloud Service Brokerage (CSB) and Cloud Service Management (CMP) segments have emerged and subsequently evolved into the preferred model of cloud services distribution and Hybrid Cloud services management across the ICT industry and Enterprises business respectively. The emergence of the “broker or manager” is not surprising given an intermediary eliminates multivendor management complexity and normalise areas like automation, provisioning, consumption, service management, analytics and billing as client’s business model transitions from physical asset sales (PC’s, Services, Storage, Routers etc.) to their equivalent virtual service products from vendors like AWS, Century Link, Azure and Google.
What is surprising is the bifurcated path this niche but considered industry sector has taken over in such a short period of time where on one hand, the industry has evolved into a highly strategic segment of its industry enabling what it now terms the “platform economy” whereby
the top 15 Platform company’s in the world have a combined market capitalisation of $2.57 Trillion dollars and in parallel to a homogeneous, vendor orientated model where global distributors and ICT leaders like IBM and Cisco have acquired Cloud brokerage companies in order to enable what will likely evolve into a proprietary hybrid cloud or cloud services distribution model offering limited choice, narrow API support, high costs and ultimately vendor lock-in.
The implications? Less choice but clearer choice for the commercial market given a single question allows a business looking for a Digital Platform partner to enter the Digital economy or leverage a Hybrid cloud services automation and management solution determines whether they adopt a vendor and services agnostic strategy maximising choice, flexibility, cost and agility or in the alternative, adopt a vendor or distributor centric strategy which requires the customer to embrace a model of platform, cloud or hybrid cloud computing which reflects the vendors strategy and not their own.
Revolutionary Services Offered
The CloudFX business has evolved into one of the global leaders
in enabling the 4th industrial revolution commonly referred to as the Digital Revolution fundamentally enabled by the Platform Economy. The company has spent several years developing a platform called CloudSelect, now in its 3rd generation as a Digital, Cloud and IoT services automation and management platform. From the outset, CloudSelect has been and will remain an open, scalable and integrated approach to managing the hybrid cloud landscape from a single point, smartly connecting intelligent infrastructure, data, applications and business processes together and it remains manically focused on advising, investing in and delivering platform (CSB and CMP technology via CloudSelect) that embraces 6 key attributes which include: Cloud Services – Foundation, API Strategy and Structure, Open Source foundation, Supports Containerisation, Integrates Digital, Cloud and IoT services; and finally embraces Mobile Development and Delivery. The cornerstones of the Company’s value creation strategy are 4 inter-related divisions – Enterprise ITaaS Platform Solutions, Digital & Cloud Services Platform Solutions, CloudFX Labs and CloudFX Managed Services. Common to all of these divisions are deep experience,
DIGITAL CLOUD SOLUTIONS WORLD-CLASS CLOUD SERVICE OFFERINGS POWERED BY CLOUD SERVICES BROKERAGE.
C OV E R platform solution expertise, product development innovation, and solution delivery quality. Together, these attributes create an unparalleled value chain for its clients to leverage and scale both today and in the future.
Fundamental to the Company’s strategy, formulated through the delivery of more than 1200 Enterprise projects is the belief that clients must adopt a business perspective to the digital transformation opportunity, enabled through innovative Cloud Services and Solutions. This is based on 3 core principles: • Today’s IT Value Propositions are outdated as consumers of technology are seeking out on-demand and consumption economics base virtual service capabilities. • Innovation, Quality and Service Management are the corner stones of the Value Creation Process • IT Management Practices have reached an Inflection Point and are no long serving business customers effectively
Mentioning about how the company stands tall, CloudFX is Cloud and ICT vendor independent, Highly Agile, Deeply specialised, Innovative, Experienced and purveyor of global best practice for local domiciles customer and partners. The company is committed to its customer’s best interests and only advise them to pursue strategies which serve their businesses optimally. Vendors sell products, most of which never fulfil their sales personnel claims and having worked with them for over 2 decades, I’ve seen no demonstrable evidence that any of them put the customer first and frankly, the average ICT sales person does not have the business and strategic acumen to advise a customer on the direction they
14 | The Silicon Review | July-16
S TOR Y
should take their business.
At CloudFX, this is what they do, not just define the “What and Why” but invested its own working capital and over 500,000 of engineering hours building a platform that delivers the how. There is a difference between being a specialist and a generalist in the ability to create and deliver value and a difference in conviction and ability to execute and deliver on the value committed.
Bigger the network; greater the performance
The company supports all horizontal segments of the ICT industry that need a platform to transform the way they interface with the demand side of the market, i.e. their customers. It works with industry leading Distributors (Distribution Central recently acquired by Arrow, ECS in Asia) to provide them with multi-tenant, multi-vendor e-commerce Cloud service market places. It works with global managed service providers like Happiest Minds who leverage CloudSelect to provide next generation Cloud native ITSM services combined with Digital transformation solutions. It works with Telecommunication companies like Digicel to bring innovative Cloud services and solutions to market thereby enabling some country’s to skip generational cycles of technology and have their first experience with technology being that driven by digital or cloud services. The company advises some of the largest Telecommunication companies in the world on how they should orientate their business models to prosper in the new Digital and Cloud services world including SoftBank, Vodafone and Telkom Indonesia and Maxis so they understand how to monetize the movement from physical ICT provided assets to Telco provided
Cloud service assets and finally, it works with Banks like Citi Group, JP Morgan Chase, OCBC to name a few.
The company has strategic partnership with governments (Malaysia for example), Revenue share models with company’s in large strategic markets (China) and managed service and platform relationships with customers in Australia, China, Malaysia, Indonesia, India, Germany, the US, Canada to name a few which reflects its focus on enabling the global Telco and ICT communities around multi-vendor cloud automation and management and providing OEM solutions into commercial horizontal or vertical segments to enable partner digitization and cloud computing strategies.
Plotting the future
The founder’s words: “The
CloudFX Group will continue to align with and ultimately lead the evolution of the Platform Economy and provide the associated services which enable our customers to grow and prosper in this new industry revolution. We will remain open, we will remain an enabler, we will complete our globalization efforts and we will add additional monetization dimensions and more clearly define our Digital, Cloud and IoT services and solutions strategies and how they directly impact our customers and partner’s business growth, customer relationships and P&L’s in the future. I’ve never been more excited and yet assured that we are headed in the right direction and our ability to support current and future customer’s goals and objectives as they look to thrive in this new platform economy.” SR

“We are the market leaders in India in all natural dog treat market.”
Khanal Foods Founded in 2015, Khanal Foods Pvt Ltd is the first company to bring All Natural and Human Grade products to the Pet Industry.
M Bhupendra Khanal, CEO
“We are working to bring natural and healthy food, and thus help pet parents to have their pets for longer time.” 52 | The Silicon Review | July-16
aking people aware of the quality and brands of food for the well-being of their pets, Khanal Foods Private Limited with their premium brand ‘Dogsee Chew’ is making a revolution, since its inception. Facing the challenges in making people aware of quality pet food/treat in India, it was tough initially as Pet Parents were not aware that some of the best-known brands do not produce quality pet food and compromise on dog’s health. Soon, with sheer dedication and his love for pets, Bhupendra Khanal (Founder), came up with Khanal Foods & Dogsee Chew and never looked back. Making their presence felt in cities like Bangalore, Delhi, Mumbai and Shimla, Khanal Food is working on exports and have plans to enter the United States and APAC very soon as part of their overseas expansion.
Meet the Entrepreneur
A dream venture of Bhupendra Khanal (Bhupi), a serial entrepreneur, who
began his entrepreneurial career with Analytics consulting company Marketelligent, as its founding member (now sold to Brillion), and Social Media Analytics company Simplify360 as co-founder and CEO. Currently a market leader in its category in India, Simplify360 has offices in India, US and Singapore. Bhupendra came out of Simplify360 by bringing new CEO and started Khanal Foods for the love of dogs, a passion for food and affinity for the Himalaya.
…And this is how Bhupendra came up with ‘Dogsee Chew’
Raphael Saadiq has once said, “The way to stay inspired and motivated is by doing what you like, doing what you love.” Success follows you automatically if you are in love with your work. A successful Analytics professional and an unbeaten owner of an analytics company, Bhupi took an exit after successfully heading the company for 7 years to follow his dream of doing something in the food industry for dogs. Widely known as a hardcore
technology & an analytics guy with a lot of love for food & dogs, his journey on this path started when he came to India to pursue his Engineering and since then has been settled in India.
Walking down the memory lane, Bhupi remembers “It was while on a trek in Elam, a small district in Nepal, I found local stray dogs with shining furs, perfect teeth & overall with a great amount of energy. When interacted with the villagers, they revealed that these dogs often chew on ‘Churpi’ that villagers sometimes throw out or don’t use. This came as quite a surprise to me as Churpi or Hardened Yak Milk Cheese is something that we have known & ate all my life but never thought of as dog food. And after doing a little more research later, ‘Dogsee Chew’ was born!”
Widely applauded for producing Pet Food focusing on Pet Chews, Treats and Supplements, the company takes pride in offering its premium and popular product Dogsee Chew Bars, which is their best selling product and is super hard to chew. It is 3 times harder than the bones that cleanses dog’s teeth and removes tartar and plaque. Using the power of technology at its best, the company first focuses on the production where worldwide commended methods are implemented to construct and manage the supply chain, aided by best technology products. They also use Technology products for HRM, Finance, Media Management and Marketing Analytics tools, with a solitary reason to have absolute precision and transparency at all stage, while mounting the
efficiency of the organization.
The company produces Yak Milk based Chews for dogs. The chews are healthy, natural and also highly nutritious with good content of calcium and other minerals, which is the greatest contributor strengthening dog bone. This quality there has enabled them to become one of India’s fastest growing companies in the Pet Supplies industry covering over 20 states in 9 months. For future, the company is in strategic plans come up with Cookies, Biscuits and Treats.
Pioneers in the Pet Industry
Wearing the title of being the first company to bring All Natural and Human Grade products to the Pet Industry, Khanal Foods is ahead of starting the quality revolution in India. As they stand witness to low-quality products having low-grade ingredients or high chemicals as preservatives which harm dogs. This also causes as a chief reason behind the death of dogs between the age of 8 and 10 years, while they should have lived for 4-5 years more.
Delighting the Pet Owners
Serving an impressive client base, the company reaches out to retailers’ directly in Bangalore and also sells its offerings through distributors in 19 states of India. Some of their distribution or retail partners include JustDogs, Companion Pets, Paws The Pet Store, Satyam Agencies etc. Currently working on building partnerships with Pet-Friendly resorts and Restaurants, Khanal

Loans for everyone under one roof: IndiaLends Why IndiaLends
n unsecured loan is a loan debt rendered without the use of property or any kind of mortgages and thereby these are called as the signature loan or the personal loan. The Borrowers of such a loan should have high credit ratings to obtain an unsecured loan.
The Indian market for the unsecured loans is not well organized. Moreover, only a few lucky borrowers with high credit score are able to avail loans. Most of the borrowers end up in borrowing from unorganized lenders who demand high-interest rates. The unorganized system of unsecured loan in India led to the opportunistic inception of IndiaLend by its founders. Gaurav Chopra and Mayank Kachhwaha, the masterminds of IndiaLend vouched to improvise the unorganized system of lending. They created IndiaLends as the unique online
