Geek of the Week: Rajiv Gupta

Some time ago, the CloudWedge team launched a feature called Geek of the Week. In this feature we award the prestigious honor of ‘Geek of the Week’ to someone from our news posts of that week that we feel have done something that deserves special mention or praise. This is either directly though their actions or those of their companies. This award is a certification of honor as the receiver is considered to be a ‘cloud leader.’

We are happy to announce this week’s Geek of the Week is Rajiv Gupta, founder and CEO of SkyHigh Networks. We quoted Rajiv earlier this week in reference to SkyHigh receiving an impressive $40 Million in venture capital funding.
