Who is Arun Katiyar?

Arun Katiyar is a media expert with three decades of professional experience. He has worked as journalist and editor with the India Today Group.

Arun was the founder and Chief Operating Officer of the India Today Group’s online venture and was instrumental in setting up their online global syndication business. He later moved on to become the station director for the country's first 24 hour private FM radio station, Radio City and then became Vice President, Operations, of Microland's technical support business. In 2005 he led a start up as CEO called SEraja funded by entrepreneur Rajesh Jain that addressed the media-centric management of events using the Internet and mobile phones. Esther Dyson's Quarterly Report on digital technology, Release 1.0, described SEraja as "perhaps the most ambitious events project" they had come across. SEraja was the brain child of Ramesh Jain, Donald Bren Professor in Information and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Irvine and the founder of IEEE MultiMedia. SEraja failed to create the ambitious EventWeb it had set out to build. In 2007, the project had to be shut down.
