Running a software company from a village: Meet Zoho's Sridhar Vembu

Village life is very hard to resist for Sridhar Vembu, the founder and CEO of Zoho Corporation. The 54-year-old moved to Mathalamparai, a nondescript village near Tenkasi, in the picturesque Western Ghats in November 2019, much before the Covid-19 pandemic struck India and the rest of the world. The motive was to encourage more people and facilities to shift to villages as Indian cities started to face major challenges. The pandemic not just made things easy for Vembu but also vindicated him as people living in cities began moving to their towns and villages.

His net worth is $2.5 billion as of 2020, and was given Padma Shri, the fourth highest civilian award in India and appointed as a member of the National Security Advisory Board (NSAB) by the government of India.

He's essentially running a $5B company remotely from a Village ☑️😄

The future of remote work seems awesome 😀🤩
