siliconindia is 16 years old -- yet as we grow, we still aim to retain the nimble, adaptive culture of a startup. We have always admired the power of entrepreneurship and continue to highlight its substantial impact in the U.S. in terms of innovation and economic growth of the country.
Let's peek into how these entrepreneurs are buckling themselves for the rollercoaster ride in these changing times. Currently the growth trajectory the startups follow is all about "Lean". Lean is all about fast, validated learning. It's a simple but powerful ideology for building a business and today a lot of entrepreneurs are adopting this Lean strategy to take their product to the market at a quicker rate.
This month, we have chosen to celebrate the startup world -- and to encourage you to join it and know more about how innovative startups achieve break through at a faster pace. Ambitious entrepreneurs such as Daric's Vasant Ramachandran, CipherCloud's Pravin Kothari, and ScaleXtreme's Nand Mulchandani have played a key role in reviving the wider economy, so we have devoted few pages narrating their stories of how they built their successful startups and are helping the enterprises.
We also have the successful tale of Human Capital Management and Financial Management Cloud software company Workday founder Aneel Bhusri. Bhusri is one of the most successful Indian entrepreneurs who was quick in building his startup, winning the investors mind and leading his company to one of the most successful tech IPOs of the year. Workday debuted on NYSE in October, 2012 with an initial offer at $28 per share and raised approximately $628 million in the offering and was valued at a whopping $4 billion, making it one of the most successful tech IPOs of the year.
We've also pinned down some of the most inspiring CXOs and CIOs to discover what they are looking for and how they are executing the multi-channel strategy which can become successful only when technology becomes a key enabler to implement the strategy.
Let's hope they inspire you to take the plunge yourself.
