Expert Bio

I am Gaurav Vaid, a dedicated Product Thinker with over 25 years of hands-on experience leading Product Management and Engineering teams. Through my career, I had the privilege of steering a multi-million-dollar business and playing a pivotal role in a groundbreaking Startup that transformed the Mobile Broadband market with the Industry's first Multi-Access, Multi-Services Platform for Mobile Core. Witnessing and successfully scaling this venture within Cisco, post-acquisition, to attain market leadership was an extraordinary journey. In my final role at Cisco, I spearheaded a portfolio transition from on premise hardware to a blend of hybrid cloud and Software as a Service (SaaS) transformation. Driving organizational shifts from traditional waterfall to agile methodologies and embracing DevOps practices marked a significant aspect of this cloud transition. As a motivational team leader, I thrive on energizing teams to peak performance and believe in fostering a culture grounded in mutual trust and individual empowerment. My passion for Telecommunications and connecting people aligns with the evolving landscape of Enterprise Campus Wireless Networks, facing disruptions akin to the Innovator's Dilemma. Drawing from my extensive background, I am poised to assist industry leaders in successfully navigating these challenges. As one of the Founding Partners at Venturis Inc, our focus is on guiding clients through launching or transitioning to the next S-Curve. With a rich history of steering organizations through technology, organizational, and business transitions, I am excited to leverage my vast experience to help investors, entrepreneurs and business leaders grow and scale their ventures. Additionally, I wear the hat of Podcast Host and Producer for "Venturis Stories: Navigating the Art of Product Thinking." Beyond the professional realm, I am an avid hiker and sports enthusiast who finds joy in exploring different corners of the world. Looking forward to connecting and sharing insights with others through this platform.
