The Founders

Naveen Valsakumar

This can of Redbull is the high energy drive every start-up needs. With a passion for technology, superlative people skills and the gift of the gab, Naveen reigns over business operations, marketing and sales at Notion Press.

With an appetite for code, a thirst for Vanilla tea and an uncanny ability to fall asleep in the middle of a conversation, Bhargava brings a whole lot of development experience into the publishing industry. When he isn’t busy playing Farmville in real life or watching his favorite sci-fi movies, he heads the Notion Press development team.

Jana Pillay

Jana PillayCo-Founder & CCO

You know that one guy who turns up overdressed for every occasion. That’s Jana. He dreams of being the rock star of publishing and gets to live that dream everyday at Notion Press. Despite getting easily riled up over the social, political and cricketing issues in India, he maintains a Zen-like calm when it comes to business. With the steadiness of an eye surgeon and the excitement of a 10-year-old, he runs the Notion Press publishing team.
