Shilpa is one of those rare, performing to the extreme limits in any field that she chooses, excelling in them and yet totally grounded and a humble human being. Presently, Shilpa is the Founder and CEO of Indicus Software. Carrying with her an ever-growing desire to deliver the best, Shilpa has come a long way since she first set foot in the Land of the Rising Sun in 1992. She was the first and youngest woman entrepreneur from India to start her own software development firm in Japan, an achievement that not many people are aware of and a distinction she continues to hold even today. Technical clarity and excellent Japanese language skills are her biggest strengths. In more than two decades that she has been in the IT industry, she has played a leading role in the design and architecture of highly complex systems in a broad range of domains.

Even until this date, she enjoys the challenge of designing complex solutions that are based on varied platforms and technology is never an issue for her. What is probably one of her most admirable skills is that even in an age where technologies change so frequently, she has been able to keep herself up-to-date with the cutting edge, a unique quality that very often surprises all. Needless to mention that, Shilpa has led the Indicus team from the front in all departments, taking the company from one strength to the other.
