Kapil graduated from Dhirubhai Ambani Institute of Information and Communication Technology with a bachelor’s degree in ICT in 2012. He was exposed to the power of analytics when he joined Mu Sigma after completing his undergraduate program and realized that analytics combines both his love for numbers and for solving complex business problems.

At Mu Sigma, he worked with a Fortune 500 pharmaceutical company and retail warehouse club on projects which involved sales and marketing analysis, prescriber analysis, sales force optimization and customer segmentation. Motivated to democratize analytics, he founded Vitalysis, a data analytics provider, focusing on companies in Africa and India. As a combination of the region being pre-mature for data analytics and having a greater need for software solutions, he decided to pivot the company into a SaaS provider.

Kapil wanted to enhance his analytical skills by learning advanced analytics concepts such as machine learning, data mining, optimization techniques, predictive analytics and big data analytics by joining the MSiA program at Northwestern University. He is looking forward to being at the forefront of the analytics wave by helping organizations solve challenging problems and utilizing the skills learned in this program.
