    Hemant Elhence
    Synerzip

    Hemant Elhence is the Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Synerzip. He founded Synerzip in 2004 to address the R&D expansion challenges faced by venture-backed software companies, specifically in their growth stage. He identified the need to create a dedicated tailored software development team with cutting-edge software skills that could significantly enhance the capacity and capabilities of each client’s in-house team. He recognized that dovetailing the client’s team with Synerzip’s India based team could significantly reduce time to market using Agile principles, and save companies millions of dollars in development costs. Through this collaborative approach, based on Agile principles, Synerzip is able to forge long-term loyal relationships with its clients and also with its employees.

    Hemant’s vision for Synerzip began to take form at i2 Technologies where he leads a portfolio of software products while managing distributed product teams spread across multiple cities in the U.S. and India. Prior to i2, Hemant was with McKinsey & Company where he gained intimate knowledge of the challenges numerous blue-chip clients faced with operations and business strategies. Prior to joining McKinsey, Hemant was a management consultant with TRG, a boutique strategy consulting firm in Boston. TRG focused on product/market strategy work for growing technology companies. Hemant started his career as a software developer with Digital Equipment Corporation in Hudson, Massachusetts.

    Hemant holds an MBA from The University of Chicago, MSEE from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and BSEE from Indian Institute of Technology (IIT), New Delhi.
