Sunil Malhotra

I like technology. And design.

But I like people even more. And the planet.

I have been an entrepreneur. Always.

Since 1985 I’ve championed interdisciplinary collaboration and human-centred design. As founder and CEO of Ideafarms, which brought Industrial Design approaches to IT, my focus is on investing in simple solutions combining eastern philosophies with western scientific methods.

I look at problems holistically using a combination of design, technology and societal elements. Aka systems thinking.

I connect dots and, more importantly, keep the human aspects of empathy, compassion and enthusiasm at the centre.

Everything created by humans is meant for use by other humans …

… therefore you can never go wrong if you keep human needs in the centre of your thinking; staying within the boundaries of ethics and sustainability, and making "Planet over People and People over Profit", your business mantra.

A spiritual orientation helps. Having championed the cause of spirituality in business for over thirty years, and helping leaders get on top of their challenges using Yogic and other practices, has enriched my journey. I have written The First Principal (2014) and YOGAi: Interplays of Yoga and Artificial Intelligence (2024).
