The CarbonMinus Team
Chief Executive Officer
Hi, I’m Ashok.
My journey began with the Indian Navy, where I led talented engineers and scientists to develop and deploy cutting-edge technologies as a Commander. My journey continued at Google, where I spent 12 years, leading global teams in program management and professional services across multiple geographies, including India, Southeast Asia, and the United States.
Subsequently, I joined a Web 3.0 Blockchain Layer 1 startup to spearhead their partnerships, professional services and program management efforts.
My driving passion is to address sustainability and environmental challenges using technology as a key enabler and I’m excited to continue this mission towards a greener future here at CarbonMinus.
Outside of work, I love playing chess, learning Indian classical music, and reading, and I am an avid traveller, constantly seeking new experiences and insights.
Hi, I’m Vikram.
My journey as a social entrepreneur has been focused on sustainable solutions, transforming old industries with cutting-edge technology. Enriched by a diverse background in finance, mechatronics, and electric vehicles, my adventure began at Maxwatt Turbines (now MAN Turbines), fueling a passion for innovation. The journey continued through leadership roles at Makersan, EDI (now part of Cummins), and e-Traction & Saietta, each experience strengthening and diversifying my resolve.
My recent venture breathed new life into a historic Belgaum foundry, reducing carbon footprints and boosting local employment. Now at CarbonMinus, I’m weaving my expertise to further sustainability and technology.
When the day’s work is done, you’ll find me exploring new trails with my trusty golden retriever, Max, or cherishing family moments that keep the fire of transformation burning bright.

Hi, I’m Sucheta.
