Byrappa

Hello!

Hi, I am Byrappa. You might know me either as “The Librarian”, or the “Consulting Entrepreneur”, or “The GodFather”, or quite possibly one or more of my several aliases or nicknames (I have been actively lurking the internet since 1998), or more simply as “Vi”.

I help you build your dream.

Apart from my daily job where I am designing ventures, organisations, brands, or people’s lives, or selling ideas, or more importantly people, I have founded/co-founded/invested in several startups, ventures, for purpose, and for benefit NGO’s/NPO’s/social enterprises.

I also dabble in some writing mostly non-fiction, some fiction, and some either crappy or deeply embarrassing poetry (Don’t ask); ghost writing, and (ghost) editing; blog @ a few sites; asking crazy questions; or guzzling down coffee/green tea/whiskey all the while talking very animatedly about some topic.

You can find more fragments of me scattered across the web at Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, among many others. You can also email me at vi @ byrappa dot com. While I do read every email promptly and personally, due to the sheer number of them, I cannot respond personally to all messages. I apologise.
