Entrepreneur magazine in association with Client Associates is presenting the second edition of its Guru Mantra lecture series with Phaneesh Murthy, CEO of iGate Patni, better known as the man who built a US$1 billion empire in just seven years.

An alumnus of the Indian Institute of Management Ahmedabad and Indian Institute of Technology Madras, Murthy began his journey in 1992 as a part of Infosys. His contribution to Infosys has been widely regarded as one of the major reasons why Infosys became the IT giant that represented the booming Indian economy along with other luminaries. Since his exit from Infosys in 2002, Murthy has served first as the founder of US-based consulting firm Primentor and then as the co-founder of Quintant Services in 2003.

The latter was acquired by iGate in 2003, bringing Mr Murthy to the top of a major IT giant once again. At iGate, Mr Murthy has helped to improve the company’s performance by bringing in a new management team, changing the firm’s business models, putting emphasis on higher offshore revenue contribution, increasing resource utilization, amongst other measures.

Mr Murthy also spearheaded iGate’s acquisition of Patni Computers, the sixth largest IT company in India for US$1.22 billion, creating an IT behemoth that employs a talent pool of 26000 people to deliver solutions to 360 Fortune 1000 clients across the Americas, Europe- Middle East-Africa, and Asia-Pacific.

Mr Murthy will be talking to a select gathering of established entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, and corporate executives at the ITC Grand Central, Parel on October 18, 2011 at 7.30 pm. The talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A session on the Indian entrepreneurial ecosystem with the audience, where Murthy will discuss his trials and tribulations as an entrepreneur and what it takes to succeed in the modern economy.

Registration for the event is at entrepreneurindia.in/gurumantra.

MxM Media will help to take the event to the relevant online community as the Online Media partner.

Organized by Entrepreneur magazine, Guru Mantra is a lecture series that celebrates the spirit of entrepreneurship, organized at premium venues across different cities. Every session has a successful entrepreneur as the guest mento who shares his or her entrepreneurial journey with the attendees, followed by a Q&A session where the attendees get a chance to ask questions specific to their business.
