In 2015, I co-founded, DataGlen, with Rajesh Kunnath, Sunil Ghai and Tanuja Ganu, in Bengaluru. We started with the objective of developing a data market place (think of it as an eBay for timeseries data). However, given the difficulties of convincing organisations to share their gold, we pivoted to developing machine learning and IoT technologies for managing Distributed Energy Resources such as solar and storage. We developed both edge and cloud side solutions including phone apps for iOS and Android.
The company’s revenue grew by at least 225% year-on-year from 2015 to 2019. DataGlen has many B2B customers (DISCOMs, OEMs, Solar EPCs and O&Ms) in Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, Kenya, Sri Lanka and India. The company’s products and business models have been recognized with the many prestigious awards and honors.
Currently, the company is being managed by investors.
