ProfitWheel is a product company focused on creating a customer data-led marketing intelligence platform for the new direct-to-consumer world.

“Gautam and I have worked together for over a decade, and I am delighted to have him on board as a co-founder," said Vivek Bhargava. "Under his leadership, we will have an increased focus on driving tech innovations and building new products that will enable true intelligence in the mar-tech ecosystem.
