Mahesh Sharma

Mahesh Sharma earned his pen licence in his homeland, where he covered the technology industry for ZDNet, SMH, Sky Business News, and The Australian--first as an FTE, and later as a freelancer. The latter fueled his passion for startups and empowered a unique perspective on entrepreneurs' passion to solve problems using technology. Armed with this knowledge, experience, and discipline, Mahesh has returned to his spiritual homeland India to document the mixed fortunes of one of the world's most exciting technology economies.
