When our founder, Vikas Narula, decided to go back to business school in 2006 he had no clue what he was in for.
Having worked in the start-up software world for over a decade, Vikas enrolled in Duke’s Global MBA program with the intention of expanding horizons and gaining a new perspective.
In one of his first management classes, he was introduced to the concept of informal networks – that while we work in hierarchies, real work happens through the web of human connection. Mapping and understanding that web can help organizations and leaders do better.
Enamored and fascinated by this concept, Vikas sought to apply it in his job. Frustrated by the lack of business-oriented tools and services, Vikas teamed up with fellow classmate, Ron Dees, and they decided to build their own.
Like that, Keyhubs was born.
