About Me

Welcome to my Website!

Hi, I am Sugat Nayak,recently graduated from S.P. Jain Institute of Management and Research, Mumbai.

With 5 years of experience in IT Sales/ Business Development, Product Management in Cybersecurity & IT Product/Service Domain, I have worked with B2B SaaS Start-up and gained exposure in multiple business processes & industries with an understanding of emerging technologies – Artificial Intelligence, Automation, Blockchain, Cloud, Data Analytics and Security

I aim to build a perfect balance between my personal and professional life along with spreading happiness around me.

I’ve always been inspired by Tim Berners Lee, the founder of World Wide Web’s quote “We need diversity of thought in the world to face the new challenges”. Being a CS graduate, the normal route for me would’ve been to continue as an IT professional but barring the initial few months, I’ve consciously decided to work for start-ups to have a holistic experience of running a business. Being part of the early stage start-up i.e. Linguavista, I’ve had the opportunity to set up a team and manage them. As Business Development Manager I was part of the core team and bring in clients. I’ve had the opportunity to attend various international events as a keynote speaker.

Taking a lot of learning from my time here, I joined Appknox as Head of Technical Sales. I brought in over 100 clients over the course of a little more than 2 years. During my tenure, the company grew 5X and as part of the core team, I believed to have played a major role by contributing on various fronts.

Apart from academics, I’ve also prioritized sports and e-sports in my life as I believe it contributes to the overall character development. Fighting for a common goal with a group of players and coaches teaches you how to build teamwork and effectively communicate to solve problems.

As the famous old adage, “We are the sum total of our experiences”, I’m unique in my own ways owing to my experiences in the personal and professional career. I believe I can use my uniqueness to my strength in the various opportunities.
