Founder & CEO

Ranjit Makam

Physician, public health professional, teacher & health administrator are only some of the roles that Ranjit has played so far. Usually in the habit of recognising a problem and working on it until solved, time has shown he’ll do so even if it means sacrificing his job.

While pursuing his Masters degree from the University of Pittsburgh, he chose to research routine immunization in Nigeria and means to improve its administration and monitoring, ending up with a few solutions that could be implemented with minimal effort. This research of his will soon be published as a book by Lambert.  

In the year 2005, when Ranjit met his now business partner Narotam, he was a practicing physician and they faced a common problem; they found it extremely difficult to find a new place to holiday at every month. To sort this out, they started an online travel portal called ‘Holidaydial’ and brought together about 30 resorts in Karnataka on the same platform. The market wasn’t ready.Having started before the meteoric rise of e-commerce, the usage and understanding of internet wasn’t that strong in India.

At this time he took a break from work to travel and explore India and he was at it for a good 6 months. Being the avid traveller that he is, all he wanted to do was mark-off destinations from his go-to list. Ranjit once visited the Caribbean for a UNDP volunteer program for HIV prevention and treatment and liked it there so much that he decided to take up a part time job. He was soon island-hopping and working in medical universities as a professor as he enjoyed teaching students who were aspiring doctors.

Narotam Wadhwa

Narotam wanted to be a part of Medpick to change the way medicines are sold in India. Having worked with Dr. Ranjit in the tourism industry before, he had already brushed shoulders with the medical world by organizing globally attended medical conferences.

Destiny called him once again when Ranjit conceived of Medpick and knew Narotam would be an ideal partner. In almost 35 years of experience in the hospitality, travel and tourism industry, Narotam travelled widely across Asia, worked as an entrepreneur in Kenya and built a superhuman ability to convince people along the way. He believes the way he views life is a big part of that skill: that life begins and ends with you, that faith is a motivator, spirituality a source of solace and relationships should be built to last.

Soujanya Parvataneni

Soujanya was transformed into a doctorpreneur during her journey to achieve the American Dream. The need for money to fund her stay in America for a long period of time and weak support from her family, made her participate with her friends in many initiatives.

Her participation in an initiative for being a marketplace seller on Amazon quickly generated half a million dollars which had otherwise done a paltry $60,000 the previous year. She has participated in many projects in the healthcare domain and one such project was to create an application for people with special care needs which unfortunately did not receive any funding, because the size of target audience wasn't big enough.

But in the process she got an opportunity to work with her future team which included Ranjit. She was so impressed with the concept of Medpick that she came on board the very first day. She has helped structure, conceptualize, plan, and collaborate Medpick with international distributors.

Jeevan Makam

Jeevan is currently an Epidemiologist at Centres for Disease Control and Prevention. Having worked with the World Health Organisation for over 9 years, he is extremely well versed with the pharmaceutical sector globally.

He has worked in posts such as a Medical Officer - Routine Immunization, a Technical Consultant, a STOP Consultant, an Officer on Special Duty, even a Deputy Regional Coordinator and a Surveillance Medical Officer in India and Nigeria. These posts have helped him understand what the medical industry lacks and what could be done to help change it.  

He was a part of the advocacy team for the policy maker in Nigeria during his time there. No matter where he went, he was always known for his leadership skills and for the fact that he could produce results in the most adverse conditions.
