Sid Mookerji. was co-founder and CEO of an Atlanta, GA headquartered company called SPI for 22 years. He built the company from the ground up into a 2700+ strong company that operated in over a dozen countries and provided IT services and SaaS products to 300+ Retailers and CPG companies worldwide. Post his exit in September 2016 through a sale to Private Equity, he along with his wife is now working with dual objectives: to encourage entrepreneurs in India and the US as well as continue the tech journey of the city of Mysuru, something we began in the mid nineties as the city's first IT exporter and STPI member. One of the immediate steps to that end has been to convert the Mysuru campus that we had built for SPI (and still own) into Silver Spirit Tech Park (SSTP) with plug and play facilities for startups and support startups in that location. Further towards their mission to support entrepreneurs especially startups, they are working with Georgia Tech's Advanced Technology Development Center (ATDC) and creating a favorable ecosystem for retail tech startups.
