Santosh Panda built Explara in 2008, an all-in-one Event Management & Membership Technology software platform in London and brought it to India which gradually transformed into a growing global event industry. After an initial attempt to study medicine, he did engineering in Industrial and Production, willing to do something different. The dot-com boom gave a flying start to his career. The opportunity to work for global companies like eBay and BBC further influenced his passion for entrepreneurship as he was someone who was always equipped with new business startup ideas. Delighting 60,000+ customers and powering events in 21 countries, Explara was a third-time success story.
