Separator

The former CTO of Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri, jewellery brand, Pooran Jaiswal is now appointed as the new Chief Information Officer (CIO) at Entero Healthcare. He will report to company's COO, Prem Sethi.

His thoughts on entering a startup, rather than a well-endowed brand, he said, "when you try to do something, you join a startup and you just have a smaller or larger organization in order to make use of your previous experience. Everyone has a way to determine the career path and it is so different from person to person to describe success”.

Earlier Pooran had worked at Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri for duration of three years and prior to that he was the CTO at Globus. He possesses nearly 22 years of professional experience and is said to have put forth his professional skills at companies like Rediff.com and NIIT Technologies in the past.

While his time at Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri, Pooran played leading roles from moving to cloud, RPA, data analytics and AR/VR under various digital initiatives. Also, he looked after design, maintenance, support as well as ongoing improvement of all IT infrastructure and services for both enterprise systems and individual users. Ultimately, he gave a whole new definition to the jewellery brand within a brief period.

"with your expertise and experience, becoming a Tech Evangelist feels a lot like you cannot do it with the masses. Also, when you work with large businesses, you have a relatively less probability of success as the mechanism does not encourage you to gamble and regulations will limit you to doing something different. Yes, in each organization there are exceptions, even for people who do not want to take chances they are decent enough. Since everyone knows start-ups are risky business, but you will not learn or succeed unless you take risks".

Pooraan says that in the wake of the pandemic his decision to join a start-up had been made. "The pandemic set out several new questions and I began to learn a lot about health and finance. I have learned several accounts that don't get enough funding for health insurance at the price people expect. Millions are unable to afford drugs either because they don't get money (mostly the economically backward) or because they don't know how to look about themselves. Many of them are everyday salaries and many of them cannot save enough money for all kinds of shocks in life even after they are employed for a full time career,” he adds.

He went on to say that his realization probed him to enter a start-up, hoping to fix some of those problems and painful points. To which he expressed, "I can't discuss much at this time, but I can assure you that we're on a great path, linking pan-India operations, individuals, problems and machine learning providers, artificial intelligence and block chain solutions. Not only does it maximize clarity, but it would also improve productivity and cost savings and solve many problems."

In view of his decision to enter a startup, he pointed that, "with your expertise and experience, becoming a Tech Evangelist feels a lot like you cannot do it with the masses.

Pooran holds a PhD from Marymount University, Virginia, US. He graduated from the University of Mumbai with a Bachelor of Mathematics and a Master in Technology from the University of Manipal.
