Hello and welcome to Startup Sidekick!

My name is Anil Hemrajani. I’m a serial tech entrepreneur with two successful exits) and a software executive with decades of leadership and hands-on experience in product development, at startups and public companies. I’m also a published author and speaker.

I started this website because I LOVE providing solutions that help startups succeed. I’m passionate about helping others because running both my startups was an emotional and stressful roller coaster ride. I hope this website helps you avoid some common pitfalls and enjoy the startup journey.
