Gregarious Narain
Co-Founder, LifeGrams

Website | @gregarious

I have spent the first 10 years focused on solving problems through products. I have dedicated my career towards leveraging my broad experience and problem-solving skills to dissect industries, define a problem space and innovate a product solution. So far, I have introduced solutions for the content management, e-mail, market research verticals.

Since 2003, I have solely focused my attentions to the social dimension of product creation. I am widely recognized as a thought leader in the field, a contributor to the founding concepts of the expanding social web, and have utilized my insights to develop solutions for the online dating, identity, conference and social media industries.

Since 2006, I have worked, as a principal at Blue Whale Labs to bring business ideas and product concepts to life for companies of all sizes, from the Fortune 500 to the smallest startup.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts from New York University in Sociology. After completing my studies, I honed my skills as a graphic and web designer before launching a career as a developer and technologist supporting the emerging Internet industry.
