Family’s Business Tradition
Every powerful business figure has a unique tale of hardship, resilience, grit, and commitment. Mr. Rohan Karnataki’s family tradition encourages the new generation to start a new line of business from scratch. This is so that the new generation understands the value of struggle, challenges and overcoming limitations to achieve success.
Mr. Rohan Karnataki started doing business since 18 and has never looked back. He has been financially independent ever since and also pursued MBA from Australian National University.
Work-Life Balance as a CEO
Mr. Rohan Karnataki believes that “When you are the CEO, work and play blur into one another. The most important thing is to have sharp focus and steer the firm toward greater success.” He comes from a loving and supportive family and he frequently takes his two kids on outdoor adventures and creative workshops where they can express themselves while learning valuable life lessons.
Mr. Rohan Karnataki is a serial entrepreneur. He has founded several companies and served as their CEO. This has given him an opportunity to work with the most respected organizations in the world. Throughout his professional life, he has collaborated with multinational corporations across various sectors, including fast-moving consumer goods (FMCG), finance, telecommunications, information technology (IT), automotive, energy, education, media, and retail. Some of Hindavi Technologies clients include:
- Avaya Telecom
- Bank of America

Pacing with ever-evolving trends
As Mr. Rohan puts it, “The only approach to stay up to speed with ever-evolving trends in the industry is to set them”. As a CEO, his goal is to ensure that the company is consistently ahead of the curve regarding technological developments. Before they became trend-words, the company has been regularly implementing ML and AI technology into its products and introduced VR/AR to the world.
A company’s overall business plan can only be successful if it can change and evolve with the times. To ensure that the company can adapt to the rapid rate of technological change, Mr. Rohan Karnataki has taken initiatives to educate his staff and provide them with guidance and direction to upskill themselves.
R&D and Expanding Markets
The company’s business model places a premium on R&D. It often strives to introduce ground-breaking new products. The company aims to be an industry leader in cutting-edge fields including quantum computing, ambient computing and AI.
As a business leader, Mr. Rohan anticipates the eventual demise of the distinction between “White Collar” (physical and cerebral) and “Blue Collar” (physical) occupations. Green collar jobs (those requiring physical, emotional and mental labor) are the ones that will thrive in the future since they are staffed by people who bring their whole-selves to work. To do this, one needs to establish a meaningful rapport with them, which means learning about their aspirations and working with them to realize their desires. Employees will be happy and fulfilled in the work if they are given space to share their thoughts and are encouraged to take the initiative. All these functional elements are present at the company, and its employees attrition rate is lowest in the industry.

Strategy for the Long Run
The CEO’s long-term goal is to increase the company’s output of ground-breaking information technology (IT) solutions in education and healthcare. The company’s ed-tech product, CareerFirst, has already been released. It is the first comprehensive Career Design Platform in India. Impact sectors that have the potential to improve the lives of people while also fostering personal growth and a robust economy are of particular interest to the company.
The CSR Policy
Mr. Rohan Karnataki believes “We earn a livelihood by what we get, but we create a life by what we give,”. He is the founder of Gudbro – Society for Corporate Strategic Philanthropy. Gudbro facilitates strategic relationships between other corporations, including him and 60+ non-governmental organizations (NGOs), to aid in their mission fulfilment. The healthcare, hygiene, education, empowerment, agriculture, and self-employment sectors benefit from the company’s contributions to these social groups.
A Word to the World
In Mr. Rohan’s opinion, a lack of persistence is fatal to a career in top management. The CEO of a firm needs to be able to see the big picture and motivate their staff to work toward the organization’s ultimate objective. Mr. Rohan often tells his employees, “Dream as impossible as possible.”
