Abhinav Sinha is the Co-founder & COO at Eko India Financial Services Pvt Ltd.

Abhinav started his career with a brief stint at Oracle Corporation. Seeking more excitement than the stability of a global MNC could offer, Abhinav joined Six DEE Telecom Solutions, a telecom value added services start-up which was founded by his college seniors. In Six DEE, he matured into a business development lead with a string of successful international mobile commerce sales and implementations across several telecom operators in the Middle-East and South Asia. These experiences led him to believe that the mobile phone could be built as the financial identity for low income customers.

He exited Six DEE in February 2007 to pursue his vision to promote mobile phones as a financial identity for people at the bottom of the pyramid.

As Co-founder at Eko, Abhinav is currently leading Sales & Distribution, as well as Marketing & Operations – key functions that lie at the foundation for building a very large and scalable business. Abhinav has previously been instrumental in successfully creating the largest partner relationships for Eko. He spends a lot of his time in leadership recruitment & activities linked to organisation building. Abhinav is keenly involved in building the roadmap for technology, product and user interface on the mobile phones for customers.

Abhinav holds a Bachelors in Electronics and Communications Engineering from Birla Institute of Technology, Mesra, India. A compulsive and voracious reader, Abhinav currently lives in Gurgaon.
