About the Speaker

Please find a few words about Senthil in his own words below;

I​ ​​ ​am​ ​Senthil​ ​Kumar​ ​M.​ ​I​ ​​ ​hail​ ​from​ ​Madurai,​ ​Tamilnadu-India​ ​with​ ​a​ ​great​ ​passion​ ​​ ​for innovating​ ​through​ ​technology​ ​to​ ​solve​ ​real​ ​life​ ​problems.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​innovated​ ​in​ ​fields​ ​like wireless​ ​network,​ ​defence,​ ​maternal​ ​healthcare,​ ​and​ ​safety​ ​solutions​ ​and​ ​filed​ ​nearly​ ​10 patents​ ​for​ ​the​ ​same.

Though​ ​I​ ​began​ ​my​ ​career​ ​as​ ​an​ ​engineer​ ​in​ ​​ ​Samsung​ ​|​ ​Qualcomm​ ​Fortune​ ​500 companies,​ ​I​ ​realised​ ​that​ ​I​ ​am​ ​called​ ​to​ ​be​ ​an​ ​entrepreneur.​ ​I​ ​quit​ ​my​ ​job​ ​to​ ​found​ ​two tech​ ​startups,​ ​Geomeo​ ​and​ ​JioVio,​ ​in​ ​urban​ ​infrastructure​ ​and​ ​healthcare​ ​sector respectively.

I​ ​have​ ​a​ ​vision​ ​to​ ​build​ ​technology​ ​enabled​ ​self-sustaining​ ​communities​ ​in​ ​my​ ​region.​ ​I believe​ ​that​ ​we​ ​can​ ​achieve​ ​this​ ​only​ ​by​ ​bridging​ ​the​ ​digital​ ​divide​ ​in​ ​the​ ​society​ ​and​ ​​ ​by empowering​ ​the​ ​powerless/vulnerable.

To​ ​this​ ​end,​ ​I​ ​actively​ ​engage​ ​in​ ​community​ ​empowerment​ ​and​ ​education​ ​initiatives especially​ ​among​ ​girls​ ​and​ ​young​ ​women​ ​through​ ​‘MetooMentor’​ ​’​ ​a​ ​non-profit organisation​ ​that​ ​mentors​ ​young​ ​women​ ​to​ ​innovate​ ​through​ ​technology.​ ​With​ ​a handful​ ​of​ ​dedicated​ ​volunteers,​ ​I​ ​have​ ​reached​ ​around​ ​1000​ ​girls​ ​in​ ​Madurai, Tamilnadu.​ ​Currently,​ ​this​ ​community​ ​development​ ​initiative​ ​has​ ​evolved​ ​into​ ​one​ ​of​ ​the largest​ ​physical​ ​‘Meetup’​ ​community​ ​in​ ​Tamilnadu.

I​ ​have​ ​offered​ ​guest​ ​lectures​ ​in​ ​more​ ​than​ ​80​ ​higher​ ​education​ ​institutes​ ​in​ ​India​ ​and have​ ​been​ ​honoured​ ​as​ ​the​ ​top​ ​5​ ​Technology​ ​Explorers​ ​in​ ​India​ ​by​ ​Nasscom.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​won several​ ​‘hackathons’​ ​at​ ​the​ ​national​ ​and​ ​international​ ​level.​ ​I​ ​have​ ​represented​ ​India​ ​in ‘Battlemesh​ ​Research​ ​Programme​ ​in​ ​Europe’.​ ​At​ ​present,​ ​I​ ​am​ ​exploring​ ​‘open​ ​source ecosystem’​ ​and​ ​actively​ ​engaging​ ​with​ ​it​ ​as​ ​one​ ​of​ ​its​ ​contributors.
