The present day marketplace is very crowded making it challenging to stand out and maintain visibility. It is very important for growth stage entrepreneurs to implement right marketing and sales strategies to capture the market share and scale their companies to the next level.

Ansoo Gupta is the Global head of Business at Pinstorm, the DIgital Marketing Agency founded by Mahesh Murthy. Apart from picking up after Mahesh’s constant gaffes, her role is to help clients with creating and implementing their digital marketing strategies – and to keep them happy and smiling all the way to the bank, from across all of Pinstorm’s offices around the world.
Ansoo has 14 years of experience across marketing and advertising sales in print, online and television media across India and South East Asia. Prior to joining Pinstorm, Ansoo worked with brands like The History Channel, National Geographic, Star TV, Channel V and First City Magazine. In fortunate contrast to her company’s founder, Ansoo is not just a graduate but also an MBA – and uses this as a trump card often to convincingly end – and win - debates with him.
Ansoo is usually found glued to a phone, a laptop, an airplane seat, or all three. Her few moments away from these three crutches are marked with her interactions with her teams where, over time, the phrase “the fear of God” has slowly come to be displaced by the far more real and horrifying substitute: “the fear of Ansoo"
