Some people start developing qualities of entrepreneurs and leaders in their childhood. But very few can survive and achieve their goals in the cruel corporate world. However, some people fight all the odds and achieve their dreams when they are just outside their cocoon. And one such entrepreneur is Suhas Gopinath – the founder, Chairman and CEO of Globals Inc., a multinational IT Company.
Suhas Gopinath was born on November 4, 1986 in Banglore, India. When he was a kid, he wanted to become a veterinary doctor. But when his elder brother introduced him to the world of internet, he was enthralled by the power of web. Gopinath then started learning how to design website, ASP, HTML and other relevant software. He started Globals Inc. in one cyber café in Banglore, India, when he was just 14. But as Indian law did not permit minors to start company; he was forced to start his company in San Jose, California with the help of an American friend.
Led by Suhas Gopinath’s amazing skills, Globals Inc. was turned out to become a huge success. It soon became a multinational company, doing business in at least 11 countries and serving more than 200 clients.
