Moonshi Mohsenruddin, Chief Executive Officer and Founder, CommGate

Moonshi is the Founder & CEO of CommGate, a pre-IPO company that he is building with an IPO roadmap by 2020. He had a unique life journey and experiences before becoming an entrepreneur. He started his career in the cleaning industry at age 14, holding on to four jobs when his father’s business failed. He was introduced to the world of Information Systems and Technologies when he was 17, while serving the Singapore Police Force. Over a period of 11 years, he served in IT roles as IT Trainer, Systems Administrator, Systems Engineer, Systems & Technical Manager, IT Director, and finally to Vice President of Products & Solutions for one of the largest Internet Data Centre companies in Singapore before starting his entrepreneurship journey in 2001. He has worked for several IT companies including Altron School of Computers, Information Edge, Horizon.com, Telford Solutions, WizOffice.com, Pihana Pacific, Failsafe Corporation (a S$500 million investment between SingTel and Failsafe UK). In 2000, Moonshi did a post-mortem of his father’s mistakes in business and realised that the failure of that business was due to people’s behaviour and no documented processes or systems. He repeatedly saw these issues in many growing businesses and in 2005 decided to embark on a journey to assist growing Small-Medium Enterprises to align their Purpose, Vision, and People and integrate them with Processes, Systems and Technologies. Moonshi have appeared on several media including The Straits Times, The Sunday Times, tabla!, MediaCorp 93.8 Live!, Suria, Vasantham and MediaCorp Channel 5. He is one of the global “IBM Technology Business Mentors” to technology start-ups, NUS Business School and NUS Entrepreneurship Society. He is a regular speaker at SMU, NTU, SP Jain and many other universities and trade bodies in Asia. With his growing understanding of the Human Behaviour, Systems and Technologies, he created “Science of Sales™”, a sales mentoring program that is designed for corporate sales, which he has integrated in the CommGate™ Cloud CRM software. MediaCorp made he life story into a docu-drama in August 2013. The programme “Recession Heroes”, is available online at XinMSN and YouTube.
