Mohan Upasani , MD/founder at Pivot media solutions pvt ltd



Great Companies: How did you get your idea or concept for the business?

Mohan Upasani: Along with a 9 to 5 engineering job, I was also a professional synthesizer player performing in concerts which kept me connected with the music industry. Driven by my passion for music, I eventually quit my job to become a music director. I successfully composed music for Hindi and Marathi films, as well as created jingles and anthems for corporate clients. In this journey, I realized that it is more of a team game rather than individual brilliance to reach greater heights in the longer run. While building my team in the field of music, I identified a gap in the audio-visual segment in the corporate sector. I quickly pounced on to the opportunity by collaborating with creative professionals from the industry backed by my technical expertise and established Pivot Media Solutions to cater to a wide spectrum of audience in the B2B as well as B2C businesses with visual media communication. As I have always been fascinated by new media solutions, I strived to provide cost effective yet high quality audio visual communications to companies when they were using outdated PPT presentations for communications. My aim was to provide comprehensive communication solutions across all departments like marketing, production, HR, etc. via visual media and latest technology to take the companies ahead in time. With our vision to support Make in India movement empowering MSMEs and startups in equivalence to the large scale industry,In the process of empowering MSMEs and startups in equivalence to the large scale companies as a part of our vision to support the 'Make in India' movement,  we have grown from a proprietary firm to Pivot Media Solutions Private Limited now with clients across India, Srilanka and Europe.
