Sailesh Chutani

CEO and Co-Founder, Mobisante, Inc

Sailesh Chutani is the CEO and a co-founder of Mobisante Inc., an mHealth company that has built the world's first cellphone-based affordable and easy-to-use ultrasound systems. These award-winning, FDA-approved systems have the potential to dramatically improve access and affordability of ultrasound imaging, especially in resource-constrained environments.

Prior to Mobisante, Sailesh managed $100m worth of exploratory research investments in emerging technologies to identify and seed new businesses at Microsoft. The results included the formation of multiple new product and business units within Microsoft such as robotics, technology for emerging markets, education products, and many others, including a startup spin-off, Zumobi. Sailesh also led the turnaround of WebTV acquisition into a profitable business, launching multiple new product and services, with 62% gross margin and revenues that peaked at $220m.

Sailesh pioneered Microsoft's engagement in personalized medicine, bioinformatics, and systems biology. He was an early visionary who championed cellphone technologies in healthcare, especially to meet the needs of the under-served segments of society. He has championed cellphone technologies in healthcare since 2005. While at Microsoft he was instrumental in launching the mHealth summit in collaboration with the NIH.

Sailesh is co-author of the book Technology at the Margins, which takes a global view of the impact of the mobile phone on healthcare, education, micro-finance, and resource management.

Sailesh's passion lies in commercializing advanced technologies to serve critical market needs. He was a key player in creating and building a successful startup, Transarc Corp., which was spun off from a research project at Carnegie Mellon University and sold to IBM. Two of the technologies developed at Transarc became billion-dollar businesses for IBM and Microsoft.

Sailesh has also had business and technical leadership roles in companies such as Hewlett-Packard and Oracle. He has managed multiple P&Ls and executed successful turnarounds, advised several Silicon Valley startups on their business and product strategy, and advised governmental and non-governmental agencies on innovation and intellectual property strategy. He has also served on the advisory boards of the American Society for Engineering Education and the University of Michigan.
