Building and leading teams to bring successful technology-based products to market in a high-growth environment is Mihir's passion.
He has done this as the Co-Founder and CEO of Mob.ly, as an early employee at several startups, as a product leader at Yahoo!, and as a senior executive at Groupon. He has also been an angel investor and advisor to a number of startups such as Uber and Boom Supersonic.
Mihir was the GM of Mobile at Groupon where he helped build the global mobile business to over 50% of gross merchandise value. Also, Mihir created and ran the Merchant Products Group which was responsible for the development of products, services, and technologies that changed the way thousands of Groupon's merchant partners operated in the marketplace. Finally, Mihir launched Merchant OS, a new startup within Groupon that built tablet-based point of sale and payments systems for small businesses. Within a year, Mihir grew this group to 100 employees spanning sales, marketing, support, and product development, while rapidly expanding the customer base.
Prior to its acquisition by Groupon, he was CEO and Co-founder of Mob.ly. Mob.ly built a number of category-leading location-based mobile applications. Early in his career, Mihir served in key product leadership roles at Yahoo! Search, was Director of Product Marketing at Grand Central, where he helped launch one of the first Web Services networks for businesses, and led Product Management at Respond.com, a lead generation service for local businesses.
Mihir started his career as a management consultant at R. B. Webber & Company. At Webber, he worked with a number of startups and Fortune 500 technology companies to develop go-to-market strategies across a wide range of technology product segments.
Mihir holds a B.S. in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
