Group CEO & Founder, Ecosystm Group
President, TiE SG & Global Trustee, TiE
Amit believes in the power of digital and communities to an ecosystem, and it is that belief that brought him to found two successful enterprises he currently runs - Ecosystm, a next generation Technology Research and Advisory Platform, and its spinoff Kampd, a professional communities-led social learning platform.
Prior to launching these successful ventures, Amit thrived as a tech entrepreneur since the age of 23, before entering the analyst world, where he went on to hold senior leadership positions at firms including IDC and Global Data. There, he continued to apply his entrepreneurial experience to revamp the business model for market engagement across 14 countries in Asia Pacific.
In Feb 2018, Amit and Ullrich Loeffler founded and launched Ecosystm, with the goal to revolutionise the global tech research and advisory industry where the world’s biggest digital brands are key clients. In the short span of 5 years, they not only turned Ecosystm profitable, but they also achieved 51x growth and acquired over 150+ enterprise clients.
It was during these 5 years that the duo saw another opportunity, amidst a fragmented B2B content landscape coupled with the lack of support for community building, which drove them to create Kampd – a social learning platform for enterprises and communities.
Driven by his passion for innovation, Amit is an active Angel investor and sits on the Boards of several digital start-ups; he is the Chair of TiE Singapore and a Member of the Global Board of Trustees, TiE, the world’s largest entrepreneur organisation; has been a Beachhead Advisor to the New Zealand government, and is currently a global brand ambassador for the Singapore FinTech Festival by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS). Amit holds a Master’s in Engineering Management (Hons) from the University of Auckland.
Amit also enjoys squeezing in a game of squash when he can and loves taking road trips, especially exposing his twin boys to global cultures and lifestyles.
