Description

In 1994, Mohandas Pai joined Infosys, a $5m Bangalore-based IT start-up. Over the course of the following 17 years, he played a pivotal role as CFO and Board Director, becoming the first Indian CFO to list a company on the NASDAQ Stock exchange. Today, Infosys is one of the world’s largest and most respected IT outsourcing companies, capitalised at $34bn and employing 200,000 people worldwide.

Since stepping down from the Board, Mohandas Pai has emerged as one of India’s most prominent figures in business and public policy. He is the driving force behind an ecosystem of venture funds, paving the way for a new $10 trillion economy by 2030. Pai's other accomplishments include:
