US-based Ignitho Technologies opens office in Chennai


Ignitho Technologies, a US-headquartered product engineering company, is expanding its India development footprint to Chennai as part of its ambitious growth plans.

Having established its India operations in Kochi, Ignitho is now ramping up its team in Chennai and sees the expansion of its India operations as critical to sustaining its rapid growth. It has also lined up plans for a Bengaluru center next, a release said.

Joseph Olassa, CEO, Ignitho Technologies, said, “Chennai is emerging as one of India’s leading tech hubs for Business 4.0 skills. With an amazing talent pool available to us here, we aim to ramp-up our team in Chennai to fuel our growth plans.”

To provide much-needed impetus and strategic focus to these plans, the company has named ex-Cognizant executive, Brahma AM, as its India Delivery Head.

Brahma brings two decades of delivery leadership experience across EDS, Cognizant and Tech Mahindra. Before joining Ignitho, he was with Cognizant for close to a decade in delivery leadership roles managing US clients.

Scott Nugent, the Chief Commercial Officer at Ignitho, said in a statement, “Our unique model of entrepreneurship provides like-minded professionals a platform to fuel their startup dreams, starting the journey by building niche digital products for enterprises under Ignitho and later becoming co-owners in a product startup company under Nuivio Ventures.

He also said, “As we get ready to expand our team in Chennai, we continue to be on the lookout for such professionals to join our team and fuel their entrepreneurial dreams.”

Established by a team of senior IT industry professionals with a proven track record in western markets, Ignitho is already a trusted partner to leading enterprises like National Spine & Pain Centers, London Gatwick Airport, Sainsbury’s Group etc.

Ignitho’s parent company, Nuivio Ventures Inc., comprises an ecosystem that feeds on innovation and brings together technology, marketing, workforce mobility and competencies; these are essentials to make any enterprise and any entrepreneur successful.
