Mahesh Murthy

Founder, Pinstorm



Mahesh has one of the more unusual bios for a speaker at a digital marketing conference. A college dropout, he helped design and launch Amazon and Yahoo globally in the mid-90s, and he launched India's first private satellites into space a few months ago. At other times in his career, he set up what is now South Asia's largest digital marketing independent, Pinstorm; led the fight that stopped Facebook from offering Free Basics in India; won a 'best new ad film director" at Cannes; helped launch MTV and then ran its rival, Channel V in India and won "India's best venture capitalist" award, twice.
