Utpal Vaishnav

Co-founder and CEO of Space-O Digicom

Utpal “UV” Vaishnav is a lifelong learner, entrepreneur and blogger based in Ahmedabad, India. UV is the co-founder and CEO of Space-O Digicom, a mobile app consulting & product development studio that has a bias towards UX over engineering.

The journey for a typical Space-O Digicom client is different. Lot of other consulting studios in the app space are technology biased which is exactly opposite to Space-O Digicom's operational approach. Space-O Digicom is born from the belief that technology is a wonderful servant but a terrible master - and the most important thing to focus is on user experience.

UV also consults startups on bringing their app ideas to life. UV has been instrumental in creating multiple technology startups, many of them have failed and some of them have succeeded. His latest startup, which is a portfolio of 126 mobile apps, which is generating hundreds of thousands of impressions (and some $ too) every day, is in the process of being acquired by a US based buyer.

In his lifelong learning journey, UV has got a firm grip software development, digital marketing, writing, and startup consulting: all of them are reflected in the products and services that Space-O Digicom offer. Find out more about Utpal on his personal blog.

I am extremely happy that I went with Atit and his team. I was a little weary at first since his team did not have encryption experience, so when I followed up with him after not hearing from him for two days, he had apologized and informed me his team was testing out the encryption before responding to my inquiries. I was fairly impressed. Throughout the project, Atit has been very responsive and e-mailing me back every night if not every other night. It was due to my inexperience that the project finished on time. If I had known the importance of flowcharts and providing every single screen step by step, I believe Atit's team could've finished the project within two to three weeks (I had projected 4-5 weeks).
