Govinda Giri started building Sagoon as a ‘search engine’ in the basement of his home in the Washington DC area and launched it in 2009. That was a start.
Time passed, the world changed. Later, he discovered changing users’ trends and behavior with respect to their online lives: ‘Search vs Share’. In social sharing, he quickly realized that current online social interaction had become an addiction rather than a replacement for people’s offline lives. In 2014, he pivoted Sagoon as a social commerce platform aimed to change the way people use and interact with social media today.
Govinda has more than 20 years of working experience in management and IT solutions. At Sagoon, he is responsible for deciding the overall direction of the company and product strategy. His expertise in network design and the development of communication tools allows him to fulfill his role of “chief architect” at Sagoon. Additionally, he manages the service and development of Sagoon’s core technology and infrastructure.
Govinda is a Cisco-certified network professional and a Microsoft-certified system engineer, who holds a provisional patent for the Random Vector Model Information Relation Method, a core technology developed to resolve computing problems. He has received many awards and accolades due to his contributions to the IT sector.
Born and raised in Nepal, Govinda has been based in Washington, DC for over 23 years.
