Rajiv Dingra, founder and former CEO, WATConsult, has announced the launch of his entrepreneurial venture, RD&X Network.
RD&X is a deep-tech network that will drive brand, business, media and data transformation which helps businesses become real-time and disruptive. The India hub will serve as a global capability center. There will be three international hubs in the US, EMEA, and SEA as well.
Rajiv Dingra, founder and CEO, RD&X Network, said, “This decade belongs to deep tech disruption and every organisation around the world will need to evolve through transformation to stay relevant today and grow in the future. We believe that the gig economy coupled with deep tech will create new business models that are agile and effective to scale globally. The disruption caused by the pandemic provided us with a huge opportunity of building a global network in the new normal. The impact of Covid-19 has accelerated the necessity for businesses to rapidly adopt technologies like AI, Blockchain, Robotics, XR, and IoT to navigate an uncertain future. We are already seeing early-stage companies at the forefront of this disruption and we are excited by our ongoing discussions with them. We look forward to such disruptive companies becoming a part of our network.”
Dingra had founded WATConsult in 2007. In 2015, he sold majority stake to Dentsu International. He stepped down from the position of founder and CEO in January 2020.
