CO-FOUNDER & CEO
Shashank co-founded Practo more than a decade ago along with his NITK Surathkal friend, Abhinav Lal. After facing a difficult healthcare situation in his personal life, Shashank identified the existing gaps that could easily be met with the help of technology. From creating new software for doctors, to building India's first integrated healthcare company, Shashank has been relentlessly working on Practo's core vision of making healthcare simpler, more accessible, and convenient for all. Visiting thousands of doctors to sell the software, meeting hospital administrators to collect feedback, and playing an active role in customer service and support, Shashank firmly believes in knowing the pulse of the stakeholders and creating an environment of trust and transparency. Shashank reaches his conclusions from first principles and is responsible for the overall direction and vision of the company.
