Nirav Mehta

Nirav is referred to as an entrepreneur geek. One who likes technology as much as businesses.

Nirav has built a rather impressive resume over the last 17 years. He launched India’s first electronic magazine at the age of 18, started a thriving web agency at 19, and was asked to exit the company I started at 30. From that low, he made a heroic return, turned around the company and went on to create string of seven businesses. He is not a serial entrepreneur, he is a parallel entrepreneur! He’s authored two books, spoken at various events and conferences, contributed to open source and community, written some fancy code and got gray hair at early age.

Nirav and his team have created some of the most popular WooCommerce plugins. And they also have a lot of plugins on the WordPress plugins repo – with over 100,000 active installs collectively. You can learn more about his WordPress solutions from: http://www.storeapps.org, http://www.icegram.com and http://www.wpmeta.org

His main task everyday is building solutions for a global audience with a team of Indian developers. And over the years, he’s worked with more than 500 developers in his own businesses and elsewhere. He’s seen both great and lousy developers and has developed a very good understanding of what works and what doesn’t.

Numbers and all the claim-to-fame apart, what’s most important to Nirav is to contribute. So if you have any questions about WordPress, WooCommerce, starting up and running a business, he’s the guy to connect to!
