Out of Stealth Mode, Former Cognizant and Mindtree Executives Brand Their Scaleup as Ignitho
October 3, 2016
Setup in 2013 and headquartered out of London, UK, Ignitho Technologies is the brand name for the out of stealth mode scaleup, co-founded by a team of senior IT industry professionals with a proven track record in western markets. Ignitho has been set up with a mission to 'ignite thought' through disruptive Technology Services and next-gen products for enterprises. Ignitho is already a trusted partner to organisations like Williams BMW, CrowdInvest, Morphsuits and Red Ribbon Asset Management.
Co-founders Roney Soloman and Jijo Olassa have led business growth in key western markets for the likes of Cognizant and Mindtree for over two decades. Roney has established his credibility by being an early flag bearer for global outsourcing since the 90's. He has played a pivotal role in the success of Cognizant, Accenture, Mindtree and NIIT Technologies in the UK, Europe and US markets. Jijo brings a track record of setting up and accelerating business in new geographies and service lines. He kick-started Mindtree's Middle East business and followed it up with multi-million dollar contracts in their European business.
Ignitho is today servicing the pent-up demand for true innovation using a unique 3-point formula - the peer guidance of UK/US CIOs, solutions which integrate ideas from disruptive startups, and a proven track record coupled with investments in emerging technologies such as Machine Learning and IoT. Ignitho is focused on engaging end-to-end from 'blue sky' visioning to architecting and implementing viable new technology solutions, while at the same time helping drive efficiencies in ongoing IT application management.
Frugal innovation from India is starting to make a difference to western enterprises, with Ignitho already being one of the early movers in this space, integrating such B2B products and ideas into solutions for its customers. Ignitho is well connected with Indian startup ecosystems and plans to leverage its base in Kochi, Kerala, to create a unique platform to take this to the next level.
Rob Mallaband, Managing Director of Crimson Limited and one of Ignitho's key advisors, remarks, "The Ignitho proposition is very exciting and will generate a lot of interest as companies in western markets demand innovative partners to help them grow their business within the changing global economy. I have had the pleasure of knowing Roney for many years and I will watch with interest how he directs Ignitho to become a successful IT Solutions provider."
