Schwark Satyavolu
co-founder and CEO, Truaxis


Schwark is a co-founder and one of the original visionaries behind Truaxis (formerly BillShrink). As a result of his own family’s frustration with information overload and confusion when trying to switch cell phone plans, Schwark, a serial entrepreneur, started thinking about how to use web technology to solve this problem.

Schwark was previously an entrepreneur-in-residence with Bessemer Venture Partners (BVP), where he explored opportunities to leverage the Internet and innovative information aggregation techniques to solve real-world problems. Prior to his tenure with BVP, Schwark was with Yodlee for eight years, where he developed the technology, co-founded the company, and served in a variety of functions, including chief technology officer. Prior to this, Schwark worked at Microsoft, where he was responsible for designing and developing several key features of Microsoft’s project management tool.

Schwark has produced seminal TCP/IP research and holds three patents, with 15 others pending. He holds a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering from Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, and a master’s degree from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.
