A product builder by profession, people builder by choice and creative builder by passion, I see myself more as a business professional than a mere Information Technology professional. I am enriched with broad set of educational and career experiences grounded in Technology, Business, Strategy and Education.
Literally, “DEEPAK” means THE LIGHT and my family name “PANIGRAHY” means SUBMISSION FULLY, probably for submission or sacrificing life for a cause, making the meaning of life FRUITFUL in true sense, in gist. For me, Life is all about LOVE and TRUST. I have some very big dreams and I am determined to achieve them one day. I have always believed that impossible things in this world are there only to make them possible and carve a way out of them. That is what SUCCESS truly means to me and I live by my belief. Of course, that makes me very much addicted to my Dreams and Hope and that is what keeps me kicking every day I wake up.
