Gautam Shah
My experience and deep interests:
I am based in: Nairobi

I was referred to THNK by Roshan Paul.



I’m founder of Internet of Elephants, a start up using technology and games to bring wildlife into people's daily lives. I believe that by intelligently combining advancing technology with the trends in online entertainment, the wildlife conservation sector can improve the livelihoods of animals and people alike. Prior to starting IoE, I spent 20 years leading and delivering complex IT projects for Accenture across India, Argentina, Kenya, and the US. I live with my wife in Nairobi, Kenya, and spend my free time with elephants and gibbons, or playing tennis, ice hockey, and piano.


I live in Nairobi, Kenya, where when I am not spending his free time as a leopard whisperer, I manage to play ice hockey (yes), tennis, and go mountain biking.
