As former Vice President of SAP's Innovation Center Network and Global Head of HanaHaus, Sanjay Shirolé played an instrumental role in bringing the HanaHaus idea to life and creating an open, collaborative workspace in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Sanjay has spent 15+ years as an entrepreneur in the Silicon Valley, where he founded and ran two startups – Xora, Inc. and WebApps. Then, he felt it was time to give back to the entrepreneurial community - mentoring entrepreneurs, volunteering at nonprofits like TiE Silicon Valley, and evangelizing about the SAP Startup Focus program to accelerators, incubators, universities, VCs and other startup-related organizations worldwide.
Sanjay is currently leading the SaaS GoToMarket effort at Google Cloud.
In his spare time, Sanjay loves to ride motorbikes against his wife’s wishes! He is a big believer in the sharing economy and uses AirBnB around the world whenever he vacations with his family
