Darshan Puttannaiah founded Qwinix in 2012 as an application development provider. An engineer by trade, Puttannaiah had an extensive background in leading and building products for global organizations. While his work revolved around the enterprise space, he was innately fascinated with the lifecycle, challenges, and possibilities startups face. He started learning more and became active in the startup community.
During this time, he saw a consistent theme emerge: great ideas were abundant but few ever got off the ground. They often floundered due to a lack of technical knowledge or poor execution. Startups would often employ technology companies to build their minimal viable product, but they focused on pure product delivery — not product usability. He wanted to help entrepreneurs build MVPs that weren’t just flashy but could serve market needs.
He launched Qwinix to introduce startups to next-gen tech, leading UX practices, and feasibility testing to help them build their MVP. His methodology encompassed lean startup principles and echoed Google Venture’s Design Sprint practices. With Qwinix, ideas were tested before a single line of code was written. The user experience and business outcomes drove the entire process. It was was about building tech people loved.
Over the years, many of those budding startups grew into industry powerhouses. Qwinix began working more with enterprises looking to digitally transform. Puttannaiah understood that the methodologies, technology, and engineering excellence that helped Qwinix serve countless startups were critical to helping enterprises as they pursued the next era for their business. The cloud was at the heart of this movement.
Puttannaiah led Qwinix into its next chapter: a cloud-native consultancy. He recognized the superior technology available with Google Cloud and spearheaded the strategic decision to make Qwinix a 100% Google Cloud Platform Partner.
In 2021, Qwinix joined forces with Cloudbakers to become one of the largest professional service-focused Google Cloud Partners. The combined company was able to grow its global team to include over 350+ engineers and cloud experts. Through an end-to-end focus on Google Cloud enablement, Qwinix and Cloudbakers help organizations reimagine what is possible through strategic digital transform.
