Kaustav Mitra - Fashion Disaster and Recovering Entrepreneur
Kaustav is the Global VP for SFP. When not adding to his ever expanding collection of sleeveless Nehru jackets he can be found obsessing over new ways to make SAP and SAP HANA ever more accessible to the startup community worldwide. An avid Science Fiction fan, he claims to have designed and launched the Startup Focus program in 2012 as his only way to live in the future today. For more of his odd musings on ‘technology, kebabs and startups’, say hi to him on Twitter at @KaustavMitra.
