Puneet Pushkarna

Chairman of TiE Singapore, General Partner of Solmark

Puneet Pushkarna is currently General Partner of Solmark, a Private Equity fund formed by a group of tech entrepreneurs who have launched and built several companies and bring expertise in all aspects of growing a company in a competitive global marketplace. Solmark’s target portfolios include FinTech, Business Platforms, Cloud Technologies, Analytics, Data Management, MedTech and Customer Experience Management firms.

Prior to this, he was the President of Headstrong, a highly specialized deep-domain business in the Capital Markets that helped its customers through a strong process-centric digital technology services platform, leading to transformation in the front, middle and back office. Headstrong eventually got acquired by Genpact in 2011. 

He was also the co-founder of TechSpan, a Goldman Sachs backed design thinking and business solutions consulting organization, focused on e-business value chain management enterprise. Techspan consistently ranked as amongst the fastest growing companies in Silicon Valley. He was also part of the founding team that helped grow HCL America into what is now HCL Technologies. 

He sits on a number of Boards/Advisory Boards including:

  • Chairman of Servion Global Solutions Ltd, an end-to-end proactive Customer Experience Management firm
  • Chairman of Innoveo, a Swiss Insurance Technology firm
  • Board of Governors, IIM Nagpur
  • Industry Advisory Board of SP Jain School of Management, Singapore
  • Advisory Board of TransNeuron, A Learn-to-Launch eSkill Platform
  • Catalyst at SMART (Singapore MIT Alliance for Research & Technology)
  • Advisory Board of Mobikon, a Client Management Platform
  • Advisory Board of Evolko, a cloud based EMR and Digital Health company

Puneet is a Charter Member of The Indus Entrepreneurs (TiE) from its early days in the Silicon Valley and serves as its Chairman of the Singapore chapter and is also a member of the Global Board of Trustees for TiE Global.

He is also involved with a number of philanthropic initiatives like the Indian Foundation for the Arts, South Asian Heart Center, etc.

Amit is founder and CEO at Ecosystm, a next generation Technology Research and Advisory Firm. Ecosystm is the pioneer in truly democratising data and making research available to a much broader tech ecosystem as technology markets evolve. Amit advises clients on exploring new business models and market disruptions as well as reviewing their feasibility. 

Ecosystm brings together three key stakeholder groups that make up the tech ecosystem – tech buyers, tech vendors and industry experts – and challenges traditional IT research practices by offering unrivalled accessibility, transparency and autonomy on its platform. 

As a global first, companies can leverage high quality industry research and data that updates in real-time for an affordable monthly subscription, enabling them to make better planning and purchasing decisions to shape their future digital footprints and roadmaps. 

Amit began his journey as a tech entrepreneur at the age of 23, before entering the analyst world, where he went on to hold senior positions at firms including IDC and Current Analysis (now Global Data). There, Amit applied his entrepreneurial experience to revamp the business model for market engagement across 14 countries in Asia Pacific. 

Spotting an opportunity to disrupt the market, Amit went on to deconstruct the traditional research model to conceptualise the vision for Ecosystm – a service that provides depth of insight by default. 

Amit holds a Master’s in Engineering Management (Hons) from the University of Auckland. In his spare time, Amit sits on the advisory board of a number of digital start-ups and also serves as a mentor to other entrepreneurs as a charter member of TIE (largest global investor-entrepreneur network) to help them achieve their growth goals. 

Amit enjoys squeezing in a game of squash when he can and loves taking road trips, specially exposing his young twin boys at an early age to various global cultures and lifestyles.
