OUR VISION

To change the way people communicate remotely

Balaji Krishnan
founder + ceo

DabKick grew from challenges I saw in remote communication with my family and friends.

My experience: developing operating systems to database kernels to iPhone apps, plus over a decade of developer work at Sun, HP, and Oracle before creating and selling my first start up — a pioneering technology in Mobile-to-TV. I love chess, ping pong, and coffee.

I enjoy reading widely, from history to economics to evolutionary psychology. I relish long conversations. I love listening to, and playing, Tabla. I cherish my time with family.
