Congratulations to Our Managing Director, Vik Chadha — a Top Startup Influencer in Louisville
At GlowTouch Technologies, we’re passionate about entrepreneurship and Louisville. None demonstrate that passion more than our Managing Director and Co-Founder, Vik Chadha. This year, he’s been recognized by Insider Louisville in their list of the Top 43 influential Louisvillians supporting startups and our community.
This recognition reflects more than 20 years of Vik’s entrepreneurial work and service on behalf of the Louisville entrepreneurial community. Vik successfully co-founded GlowTouch, helping us grow from a small development and support shop to a team of more than 1,500, serving companies and customers worldwide. In addition to work with GlowTouch, Vik is President of Scalable Ventures, a technology startup operating and investment firm.
“It’s humbling to be mentioned in the same list with some of the most dedicated and driven people in Louisville. Our community is filled with givers and doers who have a real passion and spirit for entrepreneurship. I feel thankful to have the opportunity to contribute to this city and to the many emerging startups calling it home.”
In 2008, Vik co-founded Backupify, the leading cloud-to-cloud backup and recovery solution for SaaS apps, which manages 3 petabytes of data for more than 8,000 companies and 1 million users. The company raised more than $22 million in venture funding and eventually sold to Datto in 2014.
In addition to founding and scaling successful startups, Vik has played a crucial role in the Louisville entrepreneurial community. From 2001 – 2010, he served as Managing Director for EntepriseCorp, an arm of Greater Louisville Inc., helping more than 100 individual business clients raise a collective total of more than $100 million and developing the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Louisville. From 2011-2016, Vik served as Executive VP of Business Ventures for Nucleus. In that role, he helped create an innovation hub for the Louisville startup community, introducing a training program based on the Lean Startup methodology and helping establish two accelerators at the Nucleus Innovation Park.
To Vik, we say congratulations on an impressive career of entrepreneurship and support of entrepreneurship in the Louisville community.
