  • Robi Ganguly Robi Ganguly

    Bio: I’m obsessively focused on building Apptentive. I believe that app developers need simple tools for communicating with their customers and establishing direct, long-lasting relationships with them. In the past, I did some digital communications strategy consulting for companies like Del Monte, Nike and RadiumOne. I helped them establish direct relationships and communicate with their customers. I learned a lot about how these companies make their decisions and how they can eventually be helped in the application space.
