More Information

Tarun Gupta, one of the founders of Farmington-based engineering services provider Truminds, is responsible for overall sales, business development, marketing and strategy. The company has doubled in revenues and number of people since its inception.

Despite challenges, Truminds continued to grow during COVID. Its clients range from Fortune 500 companies to mid-size and niche companies in their respective technology areas.

What have been your biggest professional accomplishments over the past year?

The biggest accomplishment is that Truminds is now being noticed by our clients, peers, investment firms, and also the leading consulting firms. For the first three years, we didn’t have that name recognition as a small and unknown company.

I came from a 15-year stint at the $18 billion organization, CapGemini, so that was quite a change.

Other accomplishments include the type of clients we’ve added to our portfolio, the work we do and also the scale of projects that we pick up. We’ve also invested in our own intellectual property, which we license to clients as technology solution enablers.

Guiding business principle: Enabling and supporting the team for them to work in an ‘ownership-driven approach.’

Best way to keep your competitive edge: Always stay abreast with the latest technologies and the market dynamics.

Best business decision: To start my own venture, along with the right set of individuals to create an impact in the technology-driven world.

Biggest missed opportunity: To be late in starting the venture.

Goal yet to be achieved: To grow Truminds into a leader in the engineering solutions space.

In what ways are you involved in the community?

For the last several years, I’ve been part of Thalassemia Welfare Society and American Red Cross Society. I was involved with several NGOs to support COVID initiatives. At the company level, we organized COVID vaccination drives, supported people with a dedicated helpline and task force and offered help to employees and families in need.
