An alumnus of the Osmania University and IIM, Bangalore, Asvini has many years of experience in the IT services business, including 15 years as an entrepreneur. He has successfully pioneered the outsourced independent domain-focused test services model that is followed by Global 500 firms like Citi Group.Asvini has a history of entrepreneurship.

He co-founded and ran a startup for 2 years (from 1981-83), before moving to IIM - B for a year to set up and upgrade their student and faculty computing facilities. He subsequently had a 4-year stint with PSI Bull as Product Support Manager handling large clients like ONGC.

He then founded Thinksoft with the objective of providing value added IT consulting services, mainly in the areas of requirements testing, documentation and domain consulting.

In 1998, his pioneering efforts towards creating an India-based independent test service model was proved a success, when CitiGroup became the first client to use Thinksoft India based test centers in one of its large Global flagship projects. In mid-1998, Asvini reorganized Thinksoft as a company and sure enough, a couple of years later, a UK based venture fund backed Thinksofts growth plans, thus propelling it as a Global player in its chosen area.
