Sameer Segal

Sameer Segal
Founder and CEO

Iron Man

Sameer discovered his passion for inclusive technology during an internship at Ujjivan in 2008. He realized the only meaningful way to impact service quality for borrowers was to empower field agents to do more for them at their doorsteps. He designed a simple software solution so that a task that had taken 15 days could now be done in an instant. Artoo grew from this simple idea. As CEO, Sameer heads Sales, Product, and Partnerships, at Artoo. He believes firmly that the world’s most intuitive technology should be available to those who need it the most. Sameer holds a BTech from NITK.

Prior to Artoo, Kaushik worked with Infosys’ Products Division building scalable web products. He holds a BE from the University of Mumbai.
