2017 Mid-Market Social Impact Award: Raj Mamodia

Teaching disruptive technologies to underprivileged children might seem like a luxury. After all, basic needs come first. But as conceived by the CEO of a digitally disruptive tech startup, this education is no less than essential. It ignites imagination, democratizes innovation, and makes entrepreneurship accessible to all. Raj Mamodia is the visionary CEO at the heart of this program, and his conviction compelled him to dedicate a significant budget to the endeavor. For an established corporation, the dollar amount might not seem like a lot, but for a three-year-old startup, it is a significant sum.

Raj Mamodia is the founder and Chief Executive Officer of Brillio, a leading global digital consulting and technology services company. Raj started Brillio in 2014 to challenge the conventional approach to enterprise IT with the “New Know How” in technology. By focusing solely on implementing digital technologies for the world’s leading companies, Raj helps clients re-imagine their businesses and
competitive advantages and rapidly develop and deploy disruptive industrial-grade digital solutions using UX design, digital applications, big data analytics, cloud, security and digital engineering. Brillio has become a fast growth digital transformation company with 2,600+ employees serving more than 350 customers, of which 50 are Fortune 500.

Raj is a true visionary and disruptor, a master strategist, planner, and implementer, known for his strong organizational ethics, culture, and discipline. As a thought leader in digital transformation, he has provided insight to business and technology media such as Forbes, Today, Knowledge at Wharton, The Smart CEO, and Midmarket CEO.

Before founding Brillio, Raj was a member of Cognizant’s global leadership team and then became CEO of Collabera. He holds an MBA from the Kellogg School of Management, Northwestern University, and a Bachelor of Engineering degree from the Motilal National Institute of Technology.
