Entrepreneur. Mentor. Strategist. Consultant.
Hi, I'm Milind. Entrepreneur, Mentor, Strategist, Consultant & maker of fine things that live on the internets.
Founder of eScalent Technologies. Making a difference to start-ups and enterprises in their digital transformation.
Currently living in Pune, India — Founder at eScalent Technologies. Previously across the globe, living and exploring the information technology world.
In 2009, I started thinkinward.com, a personal blog; delivering my experiences on human behaviour applied to business; during my engagement in several countries, communities and markets over the last two decades. The blog targeted young aspiring professionals and young business owners, who are actually hunting for the right insights to help them achieve success.
The demand for mentoring from individuals and businesses grew rapidly and helped me establish my venture - eScalent Technologies.
We are a company with a mission to help create beautiful business strategies and related digital product experiences. I believe in validating ideas against both strategic goals and firm user insights — and can advocate for the right decisions based on that validation. I play a central role on my team, collaborating with product leads and engineering, setting the vision for products and features, solving problems, and producing simple, usable internet products.
