a.k.a. Sidman is the CEO of Floh. He is a self-confessed experience junkie. If you don’t find him running long distances every weekend at Cubbon Park, he’s probably climbing in the Himalayas or at a Vipassana meditation program. In his endeavor to seek out the good life he has concluded that the best experiences are when the company is great and the activity is well organized. These are the fundamental drivers that define our approach at Floh. Before becoming an entrepreneur, Sidman did time at McKinsey & Co. Inc., Microsoft Corporation and The Coca-Cola Company. He has an MBA from The Ross School of Business at The University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Sidman loves Ann Arbor.
Simran heads membership and operations. Having been the tour manager for Late Pandit Ravi Shankar and Anoushka Shankar, she’s organized events across four continents and for audiences in excess of ten thousand. She’s been the co-founder of an executive search firm and is also an MBTI Certified Counsellor. She is eminently qualified for this role. As someone who’s been working since college, she’s acutely aware of the new social order for women professionals in India. The origin of Floh can be traced to several conversations she’s had with her women friends who wonder why it’s so difficult to find like-minded men! Simran is the boss.
Sid is our product guy. He spends his time thinking about what makes people happy and how Floh can help remove the barriers to their happiness. Sid believes that life in India in the 21st century is becoming increasingly complex and social media can be a powerful tool to cut through some of this new complexity. Sid has a BS and BA from Columbia University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. Sid is currently a Blavatnik Fellow at Harvard. Sid is great.
