Episode 122 Salil Pande, CEO & Founder, VMock, Chicago, USA and New Delhi, India

Salil Pande, CEO and Founder of VMock, has a passion to use AI and machine learning to create better career systems for candidates and corporations. The SMART Career Platform technology provides students and professionals with instant feedback and guidance. The company employs 120 people and operates between Chicago and New Delhi, India.

Before founding VMock, Salil was the Head of Emerging Markets for Siemens, where he led the firm’s emerging market strategy. Prior to that, he was Director of Sales at the Corporate Executive Board, where he worked with Fortune 2000 clients. He is a frequent speaker at the Kellogg School of Management. 

In our conversation, Salil shares his founder’s journey, including a focus on:

How VMock helps individuals in their ‘learning to earning’ journey by harnessing technological ‘tutoring’ through automated tools for resumes, interview skill feedback, and coaching.

What it has been like building the company with a co-founder spouse and how undivided trust will pull you along.

The value of placing a pause on investor money if you can accelerate the strategies and get your company to stand on its own.

Envisioning the long game, securing patents, and the focus on constant improvement as a growth strategy.

Viewpoints on trends for educational institutions to survive and thrive in the future - think fewer offerings and more highly branded expert programs.
