Vatsana Technologies (the parent company of WittyFeed) has announced today the appointment of Harsh Mani Tripathi as Chief Product and Strategy Officer to strengthen and accelerate product development and business-wide strategy implementation. Harsh is also a serial entrepreneur and an angel investor.
Harsh’s last venture, Delhi-based SaaS platform Pyoopil Education Technologies, was acquired by Ronnie Screwvala’s leading ed-tech company UpGrad. Post the acquisition, Harsh spent a good 2 years across various leadership positions at UpGrad, driving product verticals and leading multiple cross-functional teams.
On this new journey, Harsh’s focus will be on creating and leading company’s product offerings as well as business strategies, in the endeavour to evolve Vatsana Technologies’ from a new age media company to a media-tech industry leader. His key responsibilities would include driving Vatsana’s product vision as well as cutting across the organization through creation and implementation of business strategies for serving Vatsana’s Billion plus consumers globally. He would also ensure that the entire organization is led by a unified and cohesive vision.
Speaking about his appointment, Vinay Singhal Co-Founder & CEO, Vatsana Technologies said, “We are fortunate to have Harsh Mani Tripathi on-board. We have worked with him on multiple occasions across the last 8 years of Vatsana’s journey. He has been a committed investor in Vatsana and it is an extremely positive signal to have had his unwavering belief in our endeavours throughout. This is the most interesting time in Vatsana’s journey for product and strategy to flourish. We are entering this new phase of the organization by heading straight into building unique products to rediscover content distribution for the world. He is bound to bring global technology leadership to Vatsana, through the breadth of his experience spanning from building ground up technology ventures to leading in corporate environments. He has done some groundbreaking work in his previous ventures and I believe he'll bring the same energy, enthusiasm and focus as we continue to innovate on for our audience.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining Vatsana Technologies at this very interesting juncture to further explore the amalgamation of new-age media with the next billion Indian users coming online. Vatsana has been a global company since its inception, we are proud flag bearers of being a company for Bharat, from Bharat, having a strong global footprint. The areas that we are going to tread next, through OneFeed, are some of the most exciting opportunities in the media-tech space. Figuring out a robust content distribution engine for publishers across the globe and solving the largely unsolved problem of content match-making are going to drive some of the most influential engines in the media-tech space. I am enthusiastically looking forward to leading the organisation with a strong focus on our global and Indic audience, by strategically leveraging technology and unleashing a new era in content distribution and matching. Without an iota of doubt I can assert that Vatsana is on the right launch pad for evolving into the only global media tech giant from India.
