My Story – Inspiring Journey of an Entrepreneur.
From Software Engineer to a Top 10 Media Mogul!
What do the seemingly dissimilar Glam Media and NetObjects have in common? We’ll give you a hint; it’s not what they do. Glam Media is the sixth largest web property in the US, reaching more than 90 Million users with a focus towards women, while NetObjects was a leader in Web publishing products. The answer is that the two share the same founder and CEO—Samir Arora! How and why did Samir make such a big transition?
