Jawahar Kanjilal
Founder & CEO

A mobile services pioneer, Jawahar has many firsts to his credit starting from the first ever digital music deal
globally (’98) to the world’s first and largest ‘Next Billion’ services platform Nokia Life Tools (’09-’13) that scaled
to 125 million users.
Continuing his journey to unlock the full potential of mobile technologies creating transformational digital
experiences, Jawahar founded Streamz.ai (TeamStreamz) a cloud-based sales tech platform empowering
enterprises to enable their sales teams and channel partners to deliver great customer experiences right down
to the last mile. He believes AI will in the very near future touch everyone’s daily lives, including those who are
at the bottom of the connectivity pyramid today.
Until Oct’13, Jawahar was Nokia’s Global Head of Emerging Market Services and Vice-President of Nokia Life
Tools services. He founded the Emerging Market Services division within Nokia. Before taking up the challenge
of connecting the next Billion mobile users with Nokia Life Tools in 2008, Jawahar ran Nokia’s Multimedia
Experiences business unit in Asia Pacific.
Since the early days of mobile services (‘97), Jawahar has been actively involved in stimulating and steering
the mobile services ecosystem with mobile operators, regulators, NGOs, Development Agencies, ISPs,
broadcasters, music labels, games publishers, mobile marketers and the content community. Jawahar has
been active on several industry bodies covering entertainment, broadcasting and mobile marketing. He was
one of the founding Board Members of MMA’s APAC Chapter. He also has several service innovations and a
few patents to his credit.
At Streamz, Jawahar and his team are shaping how companies gear up on skilling and engaging their
workforces in the new normal, especially their widely distributed sales teams and channel partners. On his
personal time, Jawahar mentors’ startups and corporate executives sharing his rich experiences and domain
