Our story

How Kalido was born

kalido story

Kalido is co-founded by Sanjay Varma (ex Alibaba #3), Vikas Sagar (ex Snr Partner McKinsey), and Ashvin Sologar (ex Partner McKinsey). Frustrated by watching traditional companies struggle to keep pace with agile competitors they recognised that org’s must transform the way they find, empower and deploy talent. Maddened by inequalities in professional opportunity creation and access they wanted to create a solution. Kalido was born, with a mission, to democratise opportunity for all, everywhere.
