Vinay is a technology entrepreneur with a passion for taking on challenges that help improve the world. Vinay conceived TrustRadius after experiencing challenges when buying enterprise solutions at his last company.
His first venture, Convio became the leading provider of SAAS solutions to the nonprofit sector, and in doing so helped move the sector towards adapting the Internet and CRM in a strategic fashion. Convio raised billions of dollars online for our nonprofits, scaled to 450 employees and over $80m in revenue; went public on Nasdaq in 2010 and were acquired for $325m in May 2012.
Prior to Convio, Vinay was a Director at Trilogy Software and a Consultant at Bain & Company in London, Hong Kong and Kiev.
He holds an MBA Harvard Business School where he graduated as a Baker Scholar, an MS Engineering Economic Systems from Stanford University, and a MA Engineering Information Sciences from Cambridge University with First Class Honors.

TrustRadius is the most trusted review site for business technology, serving both buyers and vendors. We help buyers make better product decisions based on unbiased and insightful reviews. We also help vendors leverage the authentic voice of their customers across their sales and marketing channels. Unlike software directories, TrustRadius optimizes for content quality and data integrity. Our reviews average more than 400 words, nearly four times the industry average. Every reviewer on TrustRadius is authenticated and every review vetted by our Research Team before publication. We also ensure product scores represent true customer sentiment by correcting for selection bias. TrustRadius also helps vendors unleash the power of reviews in their own channels. We get their customers on the record at scale, then distribute that content where it can have the greatest impact. In the past year, over 100 leading technology brands have joined our customer voice platform to scale their social proof, increase conversion, win deals and capture user feedback.
