STAR TREK – Indians on top in Silicon Valley

A fleet of second generation Indian immigrants in Silicon Valley is emerging as one of the most promising groups of tech founders in the US. Suhail Doshi of Mixpanel, Apoorva Mehta of Instacart, Gagan Biyani and Neeraj Berry of Sprig among others are a part of this influential set of founders who benefit from a strong educational background and an equally solid social circle. While their parents as first-generation immigrants took up jobs at large corporations after coming to the US and Canada, this millennial generation is vastly different. They want to move fast, be nimble and scrappy, the reason why they are foregoing highflying jobs at tech firms and starting up. Samidha Sharma reports.
