Sakshi Post:  Starting an enterprise from the dot com era to providing services that include Cloud transformation, Digital web and mobility, Product engineering, Blockchain, Robotic process automation, and Internet of Things, etc., how have you managed to upscale and stay relevant all through these years.

We have over the years delved deeper into different technologies and subsets to democratize the same for businesses across scale and size.

Sakshi Post:  Tell us more about the new platform HealthViewX and what it does.

Its digital transformation moonshot is aimed at building a human-centric healthcare ecosystem to change the patient experience, enhance the patient-provider partnership and allow healthcare organizations to address key challenges by building applications that bring data together, thereby automating key processes to keep pace with the service delivery and regulatory environment".

Sakshi Post:  Each person has his/her own way of managing life and career... As a successful digital entrepreneur, sportsperson, and mother of two… how do you manage and have managed work-life balance through these years?

Karunya Sampath: There is no one way. The key is to pay attention to changing needs both at personal, on the home front, and at work.  Adopting tools and life practices to manage and boost energy levels every day has also been core to juggle the various aspects of life. During my growing up years, I was an active sportsperson and that has instilled in me the affirmation to lead an active life where personal and professional lives are balanced while extracting time out for workouts and sports as well. In addition to these, my spiritual inclination and regular meditation have helped me considerably in balancing out the different roles.

Sakshi Post:  With over two decades of experience in the software field what advice would you give to budding entrepreneurs?  

Karunya Sampath: Think global and build a strong competency of global standards, be prepared to make mistakes early and learn from them. I have had the opportunity to mentor several individuals at corporate as well as educational institutions through life skill workshops, and I have always asked people to broaden their horizons and look beyond their geographical, physical, or societal concerns. There is also a pertinent need for young guns to keep pace with the advancements and indulge in continuous knowledge enhancement.

Sakshi Post:  Now in your latest role as a mentor you have guided people through your life skill workshops for students and corporates. Please share three mantras for a successful career/enterprise.

Karunya Sampath: Adding on to the aforementioned factors that one should take care of, the three mantras for a successful career or enterprise would be:

- Give 100% to whatever you do, that way there are no regrets and progress happens.

- Focus on your soft skills, India is home to yoga (body, breath, and mind) which can help accelerate your abilities.

- There is no time to waste. Focus on mind and energy management.
