  1. Bipul Sinha is co-founder and CEO of cloud data management company Rubrik, which at just four years old is valued at $1.3B and employs over 1,000 people across six continents. In 2014, Bipul stepped down from his full time job as a VC, where he spent much of his time advising C-Level executives, to chase after a dream, becoming a CEO himself. While at Lightspeed Ventures, Bipul realized that the $50 billion data management market had not seen significant innovation in over a decade. Companies like EMC and Commvault were industry titans, but they moved slowly and were not built for the cloud era. And with that, Rubrik was born. Bipul’s relentless drive and dedication to Rubrik was born out of his time as a venture capitalist. His leadership style has been shaped by his own experiences and the experiences of those CEO’s he’s met with and advised over the years. Bipul believes that the foundation of a truly great, long-lasting company is built on trust, transparency, and relationships. Unless there is, as Bipul puts it, radical transparency, a company will not survive its infancy. Bipul is committed to practicing radical transparency at Rubrik. In practice, this means that all 1000+ employees are welcome to attend and participate in board meetings. Additionally, Bipul keeps his calendar public so employees can see how he is spending his time, as well as find time to come talk to him. Bipul’s approach and vision for Rubrik has paid dividends for the company. Rubrik is approaching a $300 million global bookings run rate. It has raised $292 million from leading venture capital firms Lightspeed Ventures, Greylock Partners, Khosla Ventures and IVP, and prominent angel investors like Microsoft Chairman John W. Thompson and NBA superstar Kevin Durant. To this day, Bipul’s ultimate dream remains creating the next great iconic enterprise technology company where every employee can fulfill their career ambition. Four years in, it’s clear that Rubrik is well on its way to doing just that.
