Shilpa Vyapari worked for IT company Fujitsu before starting her own IOT software company in Japan, Via Indicus Software
Shilpa is the Founder and CEO of Indicus Software. Carrying with her an ever growing desire to deliver the best, Shilpa has come a long way since she first set foot in the Land of the Rising Sun in 1992. She was the first and youngest lady entrepreneur from India to start her own software development firm in Japan, an achievement which not many people are aware of and a distinction she continues to hold even today. Technical clarity and excellent Japanese language skills are her biggest strengths. In the more than 2 decades that she has been in the IT industry, she has played a leading role in the design and architecture of highly complex systems in a broad range of domains. Even till this date, she enjoys the challenge of designing complex solutions that are based on varied platforms and technology is never an issue for her. What is probably one of her most admirable skills is that even in an age where technologies change so frequently, she has been able to keep herself up-to-date with the cutting edge, a unique quality that very often surprises even our clients.
Speaking fluent Japanese, she has convinced numerous clients in Japan about the capabilities of Indicus Software. Year after year, Shilpa has led the Indicus team from the front in all departments… taking the Company from one strength to the other. Believing very strongly in business ethics, hard work and transparent communication, she prefers working on the basis of mutual trust more than anything else. She is a continuous source of inspiration for each and every member of Indicus Software.
Her tireless fight against all odds and her remarkable achievements as an entrepreneur were also recognized by the MCCIA and the Institute of Engineers (India) when she was felicitated with the “Jamshed and Shirin Gazadar Award” and the “Lilavati Mehendaley Woman Entrepreneur Award” from the respective organizations.
