Vikas Kalwani

I'm a Product-led growth marketer and B2B Marketing Specialist skilled in SEO, Content Marketing, and Social Media Marketing. I grow companies and help build scalable revenue-generating products. I am a two-time startup founder and now actively mentoring portfolio companies of 500 Startups and Newchip Accelerator.


I come from a technology background (Master of Engineering in Communication Systems from Bits Pilani). I learned how to build and market products through continuous experimentation. My primary domain is growth (including product-led growth), but I don't hesitate in sharing my thoughts on product and business strategies.


Here's a tool I built which lets you view tweets by top Internet Marketers, Technology Influencers, and Serial Entrepreneurs in real-time. Check out the "Tweet-Wall".


I met a really sweet dog at my college, named him Bear, and got him home. Bear likes going on long walks. He often barks at stray dogs. A few of my relatives are extremely scared of Bear. See for yourself!

I love playing and composing music. Here's an instrumental named Road Trip I composed a few years ago!
