Over the past decade, our co-founder Betrand has worked extensively with Video in his startups including an OTT platform, a social creative platform and more recently in Media. The timing couldn’t be perfect.
The past decade witnessed many developments in bare metal, AI (Video embraced AI long before it was cool!) and delivery. They all make video central to powerful digital experiences of today, but also (a tad) hard to build with.
And sadly, even with all this innovation, he didn’t see it becoming any easier for him or his developers to build with Video.
FastPix aims to change that!
To simplify video, so developers can build with video easily.
To do so with unified APIs that supercharge developers’ time to value with Video and enables them to delight their customers.
Praveen brings to FastPix a wealth of business and technology experience in Enterprise Data management, Cloud Data, Data Integration and Advanced Analytics.
Prior to FastPix, Praveen was a Co-Founder of Blue.Cloud, a Tampa, FL headquartered cloud and AI service company with operations in US, Turkey and India.
Under Praveen’s leadership the Company grew to a 400+ organization with leading data partnerships and blue-chip client base. In 2022, Blue.Cloud was acquired by private equity firm Hudson Hill Capital at a $100 million valuation.
He is excited to be back to building companies again, this time in video and with FastPix.
Praveen is focused on building a world class product, global team and partner ecosystem to drive continuous innovation and success.
