Vidya Spandana began consulting entrepreneurs with strategy at age 17 as an engineering freshman at UCSD. By the time she turned 21, she helped to scale DMV.org into a highly successful internet brand, launched an online publishing startup, and turned it into a multi-million dollar privately held business - Online Guru Inc. Under her strategic guidance, the company made the Inc.5000 list reporting 391% growth in three years. She left the company to pursue art and filmmaking, and studied yoga and meditation for a couple years, while consulting for various businesses around the world.
In 2012, she launched Neppalli Strategy to provide end-to-end, adaptive strategy for small to mid-sized technology startups — taking software, web, and mobile technologies from idea to launch.
Vidya is also an active advisor for Portland Incubator Experiment (PIE) and Astia, providing strategy and mentorship to tech startups when she is not advising her consulting clients. PIE is an initiative of technologists and leading brands like Nike, Coca-Cola, Google, and Wieden+Kennedy (the largest independent advertising agency in the world) to foster the tech startup community. Astia is one of the oldest and most successful accelerators in America, outperforming TechStars for the past 12 years. Astia’s mission is dedicated to the success of high-growth, high-potential, women-led ventures.
Deeply rooted in entrepreneurism and armed with an MBA, Vidya brings more than 13 years of deep experience in strategy for CXOs, founders, and enterprising managers.
