PROFILE OF SUHAS GOPINATH, CEO & PRESIDENT, GLOBALS INC. -World's Youngest CEO
Mr. Suhas Gopinath, now aged 20, a resident of Bangalore had a passion for information. A passion so energetic, that it drove Suhas to setup a multi national company christened Globals Incorporated. He hails from a middle class family, where his father Mr. M R Gopinath was a defence scientist.
At the age of 14 he was recognized as the world's youngest web-developer through his project coolhindustan.com. A fortune 500 company, being amazed at the talent, offered him a job which included a $2000 paycheck per week, a chauffer driven car and an executive apartment.
All this did not lure Mr. Gopinath as he was mentally strong of what he wanted in his life. To encourage the youth, he setup Globals Inc, in the year 2000 at San Jose, California as the laws in India did not allow him to setup a company in the country as he was still minor.
From then Globals Inc has drastically grown as a Multinational company with offices in more than 11 countries which includes USA, UK, Germany, Russia, Italy, Spain, Australia, India, Bangladesh, etc which
offers tailor made solutions in the fields of web, mobile, networking, e-commerce and software solutions. Mr. Suhas Gopinath at the age of 16 was recognized as the world's youngest entrepreneur in by CNBC and e-Business, Canada.

The law stated that an executive signatory must be above 18. This cost him the deal. Nevertheless, he steered Globals Inc further, with sheer determination. His team has grown from a mere 4 members to a staggering 600.
