My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur Featuring Krish Ramakrishnan – Transforming industries by coming up with business ideas and creating successful startups!

As a serial entrepreneur, how do you repeatedly succeed at a feat that eludes some of the largest and well-funded businesses in the world that is coming up with business ideas that transform industries. This is what Krish has been able to do in his entrepreneurial journey. By looking at where technology trends are going, and at the conversion of a couple of these trends, Krish has been able to find an opportunity, a pain point, two or three years down the road that you need to solve for a customer. This is how Krish founded Blue Jeans Network back in 2009 to make video conferencing as comfortable and as casual as your pair of jeans and Verizon acquired it in May, 2020.

Now branded as BlueJeans by Verizon, the company provides an interoperable cloud-based video conferencing service that connects participants across a wide range of devices and conferencing platforms. Over the years, company has garnered a number of industry awards for their products and services including G2 Crowd for Video Conferencing, positioned in the Gartner Visionaries Quadrant for the Fourth Year in a Row Based on Completeness of Vision and Ability to Execute and many others.
