Gumbi Software - Redefining Education






An alumnus of IIM-Bangalore and MSRIT Bangalore, Harsha Mahabala started his entrepreneurial journey right in his engineering days with a vision to bridge the gap between urban and rural education.

As an engineering student, Harsha developed a device that made satellite education more affordable and multi-way live and interactive classes a reality. As Gumbi’s Director and Chief Executive Officer, he provides technology thought leadership, builds broader business relationships, nurtures partnerships and directs projects.
Ardent and charismatic, Harsha identifies with a natural, warm and giving leadership style that is transformational in effect. One of his greatest strengths is his ability to bring together people from varied backgrounds in such a manner that they are mutually complementary and guarantee a strong team that is oriented towards success.



An alumnus of SDM College of Engineering, Dharwad, Soorya embarked on his entrepreneurial journey with the clear idea of ‘making things work’ in the area of education, especially for underprivileged students from rural areas.

Soorya has spearheaded the exponential growth of Gumbi Software right from its start in 2006. He has a strong focus on evolving and strengthening strategic partnerships with various agencies in the Government sector, to understand requirements and offer workable solutions. Being rooted in the present and envisioning the many demands that the future is likely to hold, Soorya proactively adapts Gumbi’s delivery model to ensure that the objectives are met in an optimal fashion, armed as he is with a deep understanding of the education sector and a keen business sense.
