About Draup

DRAUP (Powered by zinnov) is a stealth-mode start-up working on Big data and Machine Learning to build a next generation Enterprise Sales Enablement platform which will enable corporations sell better. Incubated in Zinnov in April 2017, we are building a new product led by Serial Entrepreneurs with more than 20 years of industry experience, with a good track record of building and selling off a very successful start-up.

Vijay Swaminathan and Vamsee Tirukkala, the brains behind DRAUP (Powered by zinnov), are also the co-founders of TalentNeuron and Zinnov. TalentNeuron, which was also incubated by Zinnov, is the world’s largest Talent Intelligence platform serving hundreds of MNC customers across the globe. Vijay & Vamsee successfully conceptualized, built, and scaled the product prior to its acquisition by CEB (a Gartner (NYSE:IT) company) in 2014.
