Nanda Sringari moved from India to the U.S. with a Mechanical Engineering degree to pursue his MS in Computer Science at Villanova University. Still single, Sangeetha had moved to the U.S. to work as a computer consultant with a business degree and a diploma in computer applications from Bangalore University, India.
After working for few years in corporate America as a computer consultant, Nanda started a business in his off-hours. He was skeptical of his chances at first, but he made the decision to stick with it and see if he could make a go of it. After a short while, the business was becoming profitable. Through a business contact, he also met Sangeetha, and they were soon married.
“By working together, we discovered each other’s strengths and how to complement them,” says Sangeetha. They got committed to making their business work when they realized that a career in corporate America meant limited time for family, being controlled by a boss, and years of alarm clocks and traffic jams. Although they had successful careers as computer consultants, they had become wary of the corporate life as means to accomplish their goals.
Today in their home in the Philadelphia suburbs, they have the choice of spending a lot of quantity and quality time with their three children, Dhruv, Tara, and Dev, while at the same time, running a large, successful global business. “I always admired my father’s business skills and my mother’s homemaking abilities,” says Sangeetha. “I dreamed of combining the best of both worlds.”
As the Sringaris have achieved success in their business, they also give their time and energy to support worthwhile charities in their local area. They are especially active supporting Easter Seals and the U.S. Dream Academy due to the programs these organizations have developed to meet the needs of children and returning veterans. The Sringaris truly understand the value of helping others and have made it a priority in their lives.
Both feel they now have a unique opportunity to develop their true potential. “We’ve discovered our inner resources – the ability to teach, encourage, and support,” says Nanda. “Now, we have so much more to give to our business and our family.”
Nanda adds, “This business honors our marriage, our family, and our abilities,” he says. “It is truly a gift.”
