"A Startup Journey" Gautam Godse shares his experiences with Extentia Information Technology

Gautam Godse shares his experiences of 'A Startup Journey' with Extentia Information Technology. Featuring inspirational speakers, IT entrepreneur Gautam Godse gave a fascinating presentation to Extentia team members and select guests about his personal journey through the world of technology startups.


In the latest of a series of Extentia-arranged interactions featuring inspirational speakers, IT entrepreneur Gautam Godse gave a fascinating presentation to Extentia team members and select guests about his personal journey through the world of technology startups. Gautam’s visit follows October’s session with renowned basketball coach and social entrepreneur JD Walsh.

During the hour-long session, Gautam shared anecdotes, jokes and experiences spanning his entire career, from his very first computer-related paycheck of Rs. 87 (earned while still in high school) right up to his current position as Software Director at Big Nerd Ranch, Inc.

As an entrepreneur, Gautam is always on the lookout for fresh opportunities. “Take a look at everything around you. There is a problem waiting to be solved,” said Gautam. “And the simplest solutions are often the best.”

A true pioneer and self-confessed technology geek, Gautam discussed his founding role at a series of startups including JabberWocky, WMINet, moreLinux and musicurry. After stints at NetZero and then Yahoo, he recently rejoined the startup world with Big Nerd Ranch.

Umeed Kothavala (Extentia Director) felt that everyone who took part benefited from the session. “We’re delighted to have Gautam to spend some quality time with us - to and share his insights and experiences,” he said. “I’m sure that all of us will be inspired by Gautam’s example, always thinking creatively when tackling the challenges and opportunities in technology."

Gautam also talked about effectively harnessing the benefits of social networking: “Who you know is more important than what you know.” He also affirmed that the key to success is to keep things simple. “Apple’s iPhone is a great example. So many manufacturers were trying to cram keyboards onto cellphones, but the iPhone uses a different approach and delivers a great user experience,” he said. “Although making things simple is the hardest thing in the world, the payoff can be amazing.”

Towards the end of the session, Gautam fielded several questions from the audience, including enquiries about the future of computing, his experiences working with Yahoo, and why he shifted to the US. He also highlighted that innovations such as Amazon Web Services are increasingly making computer processing power “just another utility” – like electricity or gas – much to the benefit of startups who no longer have to invest in expensive infrastructure.

Originally from Pune in India, now based in Los Angeles and “wherever the world will take me with Internet connectivity”, the occasion also gave Gautam an opportunity to reflect on a journey that has taken him all over the world while remaining connected with his roots at home. A long time Extentia friend and supporter, Extentia was proud to have him as a speaker and will continue to invite exciting and inspirational visitors in the new year.

About Gautam Godse:

Gautam Godse has over 18 years of experience in the computing, software and internet industry. He is a serial entrepreneur, having started his first business, a BBS called JabberWocky, from his bedroom just after graduating from college. That BBS led him on to start India's first private ISP, WMINet, in 1997. He then started moreLinux.com in 1999 to develop desktop Linux applications at a time when the Linux market was still untapped. He migrated to the US in 2001 and sought corporate experience in companies like NetZero and Yahoo

After working in the corporate world for eight years, he is finally getting back to his entrepreneurial roots and in his new role as Software Director he leads the consulting and products division at the Big Nerd Ranch.

Power generation unit, using solar thermal technology, to come up at Shive, a village in Khed taluka, 45 km from Pune

Union government and Thermax Ltd. Joint Venture

Unlike the conventional system of power generation, this plant will use solar energy to heat water and the steam will rotate the turbine to generate 250 kW power for the village.

The project will begin in the next 18 months, during which time Thermax will set up aluminium mirrors that will track the sunlight for higher heat generation. Of the three acres of land donated by the villagers, 80 per cent of it will be utilised to set up aluminium mirrors. Thermax will also set up a boiler, which will use bio-waste sourced from the village to produce electricity for a maximum two hours. It will work as a power back-up for the village. The total project will supply a minimum of 10 hours of electricity to the village, company officials said.

After commencement of the project, Thermax will maintain and run the project for five years. The government will bear the maintenance cost.

Of the total project cost of Rs 15 crore, the Union government will invest Rs 13 crore and the rest will be borne by Thermax.

If the experimental project succeeds, the village will be the first in the country to have its own electricity generation plant. What's more, the Shive model will likely be replicated across the country with public-private partnership.
