About Us

In 2012, four friends founded MindTickle with the vision of creating the next generation learning experience to unlock the potential of each employee. Krishna, Mohit, Deepak, and Nishant built a social and gamified platform that challenged the status quo of the uninspiring traditional LMS experience.


They placed the user at the center of their product philosophy, and to date, a seat is spared in every conference room discussion for the voice of the user. As a result, MindTickle has become a leading learning platform and the choice of progressive companies and millennial learners.


A couple of years later they realized the potential of directing their vision toward transforming the way sales reps are prepared. The challenge was set to take sales organizations from missed quotas to overachieving; from training to readiness.


Since then, the entire MindTickle team has been obsessed with making sales teams successful and priming them to succeed in their moments of truth.

Krishna co-founded MindTickle in 2012 and as the CEO has been setting the vision and direction for the company. Prior to founding MindTickle, Krishna has worked in several successful startups including Tejas Networks, Infinera and PubMatic. His greatest joy is knowing he has some of the happiest customers in the world. Oh, and he’s pretty thrilled to be the reigning Airmiles champion at MindTickle.
