Sandeep has worked in the corporate and creative industries for over 30 years.
His hard-to-get-rid-of passion for storytelling and a need to be surrounded by diversely creative people, made him break the mould and pursue a career in filmmaking after securing an engineering degree & an MBA.
In 2014, he wrote, directed and co-produced the feature film ‘Manjunath’ with Viacom18 & NFDC, which won him the prestigious Ramnath Goenka Award for Excellence in Cinema.
Sandeep spearheads an advertising agency and is part of the academic council of SPJIMR’s PSMEM programme for students, launched in partnership with The Times of India Group. He also enjoys creating quirky audio-visual digital content.
Having spent years in the film industry, he came to question its inherent chaotic nature and leaking budgets, and decided that it needed immediate attention. The germ of that idea was Filmboard.
Rajesh has always had varied business interests, from automation to technology, and this exploratory nature has aptly given him the title ‘serial entrepreneur’!
He has been able to architect technology solutions for complex projects, such as the SMS-based train ticket booking solution for the Indian Railways. Over the years, he has been a part of several Indian start-ups, a business coach to professionals and a mentor to upcoming entrepreneurs.
Rajesh currently runs a software development company which creates innovative mobile solutions.
Rajesh met Sandeep during their engineering days at BITS Pilani, and they came together years later to create Filmboard.
