Born and raised in the Indian state of Andrapradesh, Vijay Gunturu immigrated for a chance at a better education. Technical education wasn’t as advanced in his home region as it is today, so he left for the masters program at Ohio's Wright State University. After working as a software developer, he took another leap in 2001 to start Sirsai, an outsourcing firm serving Seattle's tech industry.
