Amidst the international competition, Dr. GSK Velu positioned India on the world healthcare map by providing quality medical technology across the globe. Adding more feathers to his cap, he has been named as the "parallel entrepreneur" by Forbes and the "first generation serial entrepreneur" by many.
Ever since his humble beginnings in 1988, he has been tirelessly working to make healthcare accessible and affordable not only to the Indian population but to the entire underprivileged population across the world. His vision, determination and futuristic approach enabled the common man to access quality medical technology, diagnostic services, eye care, dental care and dialysis services, which were once unaffordable for the people of all classes. All of his corporate ventures are aligned with one goal – improving access and affordability of healthcare with relevance to the under developed and developing markets.
The year was 1997 when he founded Trivitron Healthcare. Ever since its inception, the organization established tie-ups with several world leaders in medical technology. As a result, Trivitron now stands as a largest medical technology company of Indian origin catering over 20 medical specialties across the globe.
Uplifting the status of Trivitron from trader to manufacturer, he established the Trivitron Medical Technology Park, South Asia's first state-of-the-art medical technology manufacturing facility and the Trivitron Innovation Center, a center of excellence for biomedical research & development and design at IIT Madras. Apart from manufacturing, Trivitron strategically joined hands with University of Tartu, Estonia for a broad scientific cooperation, and to raise the bars in the medical education of India and Estonia.
Dr. Velu earned his Bachelor’s degree in Pharmacy from the Birla Institute of Technology and Science (BITS), Pilani, an MBA from Loyola Institute of Business Administration and a Doctorate from IBAM, Kolkata. He has been a part of various global organizations gaining expertise in medical technology.
