Vanakkam! 🙏

Bonjour! 👌

Hi! 🙌

Oho. 👻

I'm Saitec

Hi!
I'm SaiTec.

I build products, teams, startups from idea to final execution.

I build

Have you seen a one trick pony?
Why hello there 👋

A familiar time is between code, coffee and 6-week sprint cycles. I obsess over early stage startups and company building.

My motto is around creating things is the right balance between the heart, head & hands.

↓ this is my playground for things I write, my digital garden and projects I'm working on.

Write

Writing is an essential part of my process. You can find some of my latest writing on substack.

Leading Effective PM Meetings

How do you run a PM meeting not for the heck of it, but to derive something by the time you finish one.

XR and the dumb idea paradox

Why products and ideas in VR and AR sound dumb, until they aren't.

Let me read it first >

What I Do

Currently
Product Management Flipkart.

A builder, entrepreneur and technology optimist.

I mostly talk about Extended Reality, early stage startups & No-Code SaaS products

A cricket buff. Swear by a good masala dosa and believe that the veshti is an underappreciated design marvel

Things I am passionate about

Virtual & Augmented Reality

I'm a big believer in the arc of computing and platform level changes in a 15-year cadence. The glasses are coming, and I've been working in this space for over 5 years, inching closer to that future.

No Code

We don’t have enough software engineers (and, in turn, enough good software). The No-Code revolution looks to fill this gap and I'm very passionate in helping startups leverage this advantage.

Product Management

I combine business, tech, and design in order to discover products that are valuable, feasible, and usable. Building things that people want, is tougher than it sounds.

eCommerce

The camera and the social graph are the next frontier in how you will buy. I'm leading the effort at building a camera and Augmented Reality platform for a billion Indians to shop better.

Deep tech

I help teams and founders create things between the impossible and the improbable. Deep tech offers category creation possibilities like none other. It is close to rocket science, and that's the point.

Early Stage Startups

The first months for a startup are the most exciting. Zero to One is the toughest phase. I create lean, highly effective MVPs during this phase whilst validating the problem and moving closer to PMF.

How about yet another

Your inbox has a few of these newsletters already. Why another one?

They're called battle cards, and might just come of tactical use when you're building the next big thing.
