Biren Gandhi Founder & CEO at Speak To IoT


Biren Gandhi is the Founder and CEO of SpeakToIoT, which strives to connect everything through voice for consumer and industrial Internet of Things (IoT) devices. While he was at Cisco, Biren led the company’s drone program and spearheaded its emerging technologies portfolio, acquiring and incubating a gamut of technologies from IoT and Blockchain to AI and Voice Assistants.

 Prior to Cisco, rounding out his two decades of experience at technology’s avant-garde, Biren was divisional CTO at Zynga for multiple game franchises and an early member and senior architect at Facebook. Along the way, he also co-founded a social platform for the advertising community called AdMunity. 

Biren frequently speaks on the impact of emerging technologies at events like the Revolutionary Technologies Expo, InterDrone, Drone World Expo, and IoTBuild; and he serves as a strategic advisor for a number of early-stage, multi-market startups like FlytBase and DAV Network. 

When he’s not immersed in technology, Biren supports fundraising and strategic initiatives for several local and global non-profit organizations. On most days, he manages to narrowly escape his son’s tae-kwon-do moves coupled with some indigenous Lego weapons.
